So, thinking about the whole musculoskeletal structure and myofascia, thinking about hormones and overall biochemistry, and thinking how everything is connected in order to get the best outcomes for my patients. ELIZABETH PL ANT I fi nd myself continually inspired by industry leaders, most of whom are columnists in Massage & Bodywork magazine and instructors who lead courses in the extensive ABMP CE library. Integrative bodywork with an emphasis on nervous system regulation, client education, and self-care are cornerstones to my approach as a manual therapy practitioner. That being said, ego tells me I'd like to be as big of a name or as successful as them in my time. However, what I fi nd more rewarding than success in that sense is being able to provide services that facilitate positive, embodied, visceral experiences.
