What Is Bodywork?

Bodywork is a special type of massage therapy that emphasizes physical healing, movement, and general wellness. Some may refer to bodywork as touch therapy, complementary therapy, alternative medicine, or integrative healing arts. It is easily available in all wellness centers and spas.

It is a very gentle and effective therapy that not only helps you restore the balance of the musculoskeletal system but also helps you improve your posture and correct your body’s movement.

Healing with Bodywork

Whether you want to get rid of chronic back pain or just want to live a healthy life, therapeutic bodywork can help you achieve all of these. Bodywork therapy doesn’t need emergency medical care and is used to treat many health conditions.

Therapeutic bodywork can also improve your entire rehabilitation progress after an auto accident injury and helps you ease symptoms of neurological disorders such as stress, anxiety, and depression that remain due to the psychological impact of the injury. Bodywork therapy gradually decreases the level of cortisol hormone which is responsible for causing stress and anxiety.

Bodywork is a completely different therapy than energetic bodywork modalities such as reiki and Eastern philosophies that manipulate the body’s energy flow for optimal health and wellness.

Types of Bodywork Treatments

Many types of bodywork therapies can be used to treat various conditions. Each therapy does have its special benefits. For example, cupping therapy is widely used to treat back pain due to its effectiveness in alleviating back pain. Similarly, trigger point therapy is effective in improving flexibility and range of motion.

However, many therapists may combine one or two bodywork therapies to generate more prominent results. Here are the types of alternative therapies that fall under the umbrella of bodywork:

  • Deep Tissue massage
  • Trigger point therapy
  • Myofascial release
  • Craniosacral therapy
  • Shiatsu
  • Swedish massage
  • Reflexology
  • Aromatherapy
  • Cupping Therapy
  • Trigger point Therapy
  • Tui na acupressure
  • Lymphatic drainage

All the therapies listed above are hands-on approach massage therapies that can address many types of pain, health issues, imbalance, and psychological concerns by manipulating several portions of the body–muscles, joints, lymph, skin, or energy.
