"Touch," one biologist said, "is the mother of all senses." We use the touch of the healing power to soothe our children's small bruises, our own headaches and to loosen tense shoulder and neck muscles. Humans need touch to soothe the tired and to communicate empathy. Touching was the very foundation of medicine, including a book written by Hippocrates on massage that was part of the medical school curriculum. However, in today's world of rushed physicians directed by the insurance industry, touch is left to professional massage therapists.

Bodywork and Therapeutic Massage refers to therapies such as massage, deep tissue manipulation, movement awareness and energy balancing which are utilized to improve the function and structure of the human body. Bodywork in all its forms help to soothe injured muscles, stimulate blood and lymphatic circulation, reduce pain and promote deep relaxation.

All bodywork therapy used by most massage therapists are based on these contemporary principles: The use of pressure or deep friction to alter the muscular and soft tissue structures that can hold trapped chemical wastes; The use of movement during your session and on a daily basis to affect body structure; The education of physiological functioning; The use of breathing and emotional expression to eliminate tension and enhance physiological function. These principles are easily carried on by you to improve function between sessions, making the bodywork a lifetime benefit for you.

Conditions Benefited by Bodywork and Therapeutic Massage:
Back pain, Headaches, Neck pain, Tennis elbow
