This document does not represent a recommendation from ABMP for reopening your practice, but rather gives our best guidance for when that time comes. THOUGHTS ON THE NOVEL CORONAVIRUS AND YOUR PRACTICE FROM ABMP CHAIRMAN BOB BENSON Customers everywhere are anxious to get back to complementary health- care routines. Their resolution will be varied, from itching to book an appointment to dramatically limiting the amount of close human contact until a vaccine is developed and widely administered. USE OF PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT (PPE) FOR MASSAGE THERAPISTS The use of PPE will be central to moving forward and reopening your practice when the time comes. This blog collects and condenses information about PPE from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. SOCIAL MEDIA CONTENT TO SHARE WITH CLIENTS DURING COVID-19 We all know times are strange and unfamiliar right now, and we need each other. Your clients look to you for your touch; now they can look to you for positivity, education, and content. BACK-TO-PRACTICE RESOURCES The ABMP Podcast launched with its signature series "Conversations in Quarantine." The goal of this series is to speak with luminaries and experts in and around the massage profession; to talk about the effects of COVID-19 on bodywork practitioners—the fears, the frustrations; and, more importantly, to discuss next steps toward safely reopening our doors when the time is right. To date, there are nine episodes, each covering a slightly different angle in how to move forward. You can subscribe to The ABMP Podcast in the Apple Podcast Store, Google Play, or Spotify.
