Massage therapy and bodywork are broad terms used to describe many techniques that release tension in the muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Massage uses long, flowing strokes and kneads the muscles by pushing and pulling the tissue. Bodywork techniques don’t feel very “massagey” but are often able to release areas that massage techniques can’t. Some bodywork techniques, such as Myofascial Release, can also release scars and other types of connective tissue.
I can incorporate both massage and bodywork techniques into a session to maximize their effectiveness.
