What is Theraputic Bodywork?
Theraputic bodywork is a structured type of healing through the use of different styles of touch, whether it is on the skin or deeper to the muscle. Touch is a type of communication that we use everyday interacting with one another. The therapist uses touch to listen to your body and customize the style of massage for your particular need. By using different techniques the therapists hands are tools that helps facilitate healing in your body.
Massage therapy is recognized as one of the oldest methods to promote healing. There are references in medical texts as far back as 4,000 years old. Hippocrates, known as the "father of medicine," referenced massage when he wrote, in the 4th century B.C.: "The physician must be acquainted with many things, and assuredly with rubbing."

- A gentle manual therapy that evaluates and treats the structural relationships between the viscera (organs), and their fascial or ligamentous attachments to one another.
This therapy helps facilitate functional and structural imbalances throughout the body including musculoskeletal, vascular, nervous, urogenital, respiratory, digestive, neuroendocrine and lymphatic dysfunction. A manipulation awakens proprioceptive cells within the body, correcting imbalances, relieving pain, and improve organ function. Specified soft manual forces are applied to encourage the normal mobility, tone, and motion of the viscera (motility) and their connective tissues. These gentle manipulations can potentially improve the functioning of the individual organs, the systems of organ function within, and the structural integrity of the entire body.
- Examines relationships between the cranium/spine to the dura and neural elements. An assessment and treatment address restrictions of the dural and neural components not commonly focused on with musculoskeletal symptoms. Neural Manipulation identifies and releases local nerve restrictions while at the same time examines the effect these local fixations have on the rest of the body. By addressing these relationships, it helps resolve the more comprehensive (global) dysfunctional patterns. By understanding the detailed anatomy of the neural system, one can clearly see the potential for pathological change when nerves are restricted. Treating the nerves is accomplished by precise applied pressure and stretching techniques.
