Bodywork and Massage Therapies

The term Bodywork is used as an umbrella term including massage but also a range of neuromuscular, postural and stretching techniques or stability exercises.

Many of the techniques used in restoring balance to the musculo-skeletal system are not only massage, but also work with stretching, client movement and awareness or stability exercises. This combined approach is often necessary to effect recovery.

Philosophy of practice

Overall the Bodywork we practice is distinct because of the underlying philosophy and approach to treatment. We have been trained to employ a person centered approach to treatment. This means taking the clients experience of their body as a guide with an idea that we are working together as a team to find a resolution to the problems at hand.
