Bodywork is one of my most popular modalities people ask for in my practice.
Merriam-Webster defines bodywork as “therapeutic touching or manipulation of the body by using specialized techniques.”1 In that definition, a LOT of different modalities can fall under the umbrella of bodywork. Using the term bodywork gives people a wider range of ideas of what is possible in their care, rather than simply calling my service massage therapy.
