Question of the Day: What is Bodywork?

Someone, that I do not know on Facebook, asked the question: what is bodywork? Hmm.. I have the general assumption that everyone I work with knows everything in my head. I guess I never thought to explain, “What is Bodywork?”

Many of my client’s have different names for what I do for them. Some are just flat out funny, “The Body Whisperer.” You know who you are. It is, at it’s core, Massage and Bodywork as specified through The National Board for Therapeutic Massage and BODYWORK is (see below).

Bodywork: Any of a number of therapeutic or simply relaxing practices that involve the manipulation, massage, or regimented movement of body parts. Examples include massage, craniosacral therapy, and Pilates. Bodywork may be used as an adjunct to medical treatment, or it may be prescribed as a form of physical therapy for certain conditions.

Basically, It’s massage + other stuff!

The Fundamental difference between a Massage Envy and or Spa Therapist and someone who does bodywork is that a Bodywork Professional has both a long term and short term objective for your body’s overall health.

You may come to us with an injury or headache or nagging back pain. We will assess you and in the short term try to make the initial problem better. You may need a few sessions for this or you may only need one. From there, we try to look deeper at other potential causes of your minor issues and correct those. Then, we try to get you on a maintenance program of stretching, exercise, and periodic massages to help identify potentially new problems that may arise. This type of massage is much more then the occasional, “I need a massage today.”

Hope this answers your question, if you had this question! If not, thank you for taking the time to read my little rant. See you soon!

Vassage Therapy? Day 1.

Board Certified Massage Therapy in your home.

Day 1 in the bag for Virtual Massages.

If you have ever had to walk someone through step by step how to do what you do, it’s kind of hard. I guess we take it for granted how easy it is for us to do our jobs.

It was fun today to see the responses of not only when the partner felt what I was describing but also watching the patients reaction to the treatment when their partner found the spots (knots). I would have to say that it was a success. All from the comfort of my living room. Thank you Covid🙄. I’m here all week…………. or two weeks hopefully 🙏. Stay safe everyone and keep washing those hands.
