And that’s the Wrap-Up!

Bodywork therapies is a general term that refers to a group of body-based approaches to treatment that emphasize manipulation and realignment of the body’s structure in order to improve its function as well as the client’s mental outlook. These therapies typically combine a relatively passive phase, in which the client receives deep-tissue bodywork or postural correction from an experienced instructor or practitioner, and a more active period of movement education, in which the client practices sitting, standing, and moving about with better alignment of the body and greater ease of motion. The following are some of the more popular bodywork therapies: Massage Therapy; Alexander technique; Rolfing; Hellerwork; Tragerwork; Feldenkrais Method; Trigger Point Therapy; T’ai Chi; Myotherapy; Shiatsu; Craniosacral Therapy.
