ABMP's member website "Frequently Asked Questions" and "Benefi ts of Massage" preloaded pages are also an excellent resource for potential clients visiting our websites. RACHAEL ELIZABETH Other clients' testimonials of my work, or the work of another holistic practitioner I have referred them to. ALICIA BRUDER FROM LINKEDIN The two resources to which I refer most often are the website and Lorimer Moseley's 15-minute TEDx talk, "Why Things Hurt," which can be found on YouTube. In 15 minutes, Moseley humorously explains how pain works. is a tremendous resource, with thousands of well- researched articles on pain and self-help. I also like to refer to physical therapist Cory Blickenstaff's videos on novel movements for the neck, the low back, and the hand, wrist, and forearm ( com/user/ForwardMotionPT). ALICE SANVITO I'm a huge fan of Til Luchau and his wealth of knowledge and practical bodywork application. Dr. Ben Benjamin and his experience and skill set are in a class by himself. I'm planning to attend both teachers' live courses to soak up as much as I possibly can. ANDRÉ CROSS What is your vision of an ultimate massage experience? Publication Date: Mar/Apr 2018 What are some things you wish you learned in massage school?

Upcoming Topics SPEAK YOUR MIND What's your favorite client education resource? FROM EMAIL I encourage virtually all my clients to use the TV series Classical Stretch by Essentrics, which has aired on PBS stations around the country for 15 years and is wonderful for all body types. It's stretching, strengthening, and education rolled into a 22-minute workout, six days a week. The host is a well-educated former ballet dancer who explains movement and kinesiology in lay terms. If all my clients used this tool between massages, they'd be so much better off. It has helped me tremendously. SUSAN STONE My favorite and most-used client education resource is my copy of Travell & Simons' Myofascial Pain and Dysfunction: The Trigger Point Manual. I use it to show clients diagrams of specifi c muscles, trigger-point referral patterns, perpetuating factors and/ or suggestions for things they can do at home for self-care. When they actually see it in a book, it carries more weight than if I just say it or explain it. P.S. Have you thought of having a column titled "Things I wish I learned in school"? I have quite a list. DIANE GIROD
