Bodywork Guide


Bodywork is a term used to describe treatments and techniques that help heal the body and improve one’s overall health and well-being. Bodywork includes a wide range of manipulative therapies, breath work and energy medicine, including acupuncture, chiropractic care, craniosacral therapy, massage therapy, physical therapy, reflexology, reiki, zero balancing and more. According to Shalene Zarate of the Embodiwork Studio for Integrative Massage, in Golden, Colorado, bodywork helps many people restore the quality of their lives so they can continue to do daily activities, avoid unnecessary medical interventions, manage physical pain and lower tension and stress. The techniques and their effects are vast, but they all help with form (restructuring misalignments and mending injuries), flow (increasing circulation of the fluids contained in the body) and function (enhancing one’s ability to move). Four local practitioners are highlighted here … now is the perfect time to give the gift of bodywork to yourself or a loved one.
