Bodywork therapy

PreviousNext

You will hear the word bodywork being used in the arena of alternative medicine whenever the human body undergoes therapeutic techniques that combine breath work, energy medicine or manipulation of the body. ┬áThe aim of bodywork is to assess and improve posture, work holistically from the whole body instead of just treating the symptoms, create this awareness in a person so they develop an awareness of “bodymind connection” rather seeing the mind and body as separate entities and work to unblock the energy channels that run through the body to increase ┬áthe effective flow of the body’s life force that can seriously affect health.

An example of bodywork is deep tissue massage therapy, and the terms massage and bodywork are often used interchangeably. Bodywork encompasses a variety of touch therapies along with all forms of massage techniques.
