Swedish bodywork is the most popular type of bodywork in the United States. It involves the use of hands, forearms or elbows to manipulate the superficial layers of the muscles to improve mental and physical health. Active or passive movement of the joints may also be part of the bodywork. The benefits of Swedish bodywork include increased blood circulation, mental and physical relaxation , decreased stress and muscle tension, and improved range of motion.
In a four-hands bodywork, two therapists work on one client, often using synchronized moves. A four-hands bodywork can be like experiencing two full body bodyworks at the same time. When two therapists and four hands hit your body, your mind reacts differently. At first you might find yourself trying to keep track of the therapists, where each one is and what each one is doing, struggling to keep it all in a very logical order in your head. But very quickly your brain realizes it’s not sure who is doing what, and gives up control. This is a powerful treatment for anyone who has a hard time letting go during treatments.

Chinese Tuina is a form of Chinese manipulative therapy often used in conjunction with acupuncture, moxibustion, fire cupping, Chinese herbalism, t'ai chi, and qigong. Tui na is a hands-on body treatment that uses Chinese taoist principles in an effort to bring the eight principles of Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) into balance. The practitioner may brush, knead, roll, press, and rub the areas between each of the joints, known as the eight gates, to attempt to open the body's defensive chi and get the energy moving in the meridians and the muscles.
Chair bodywork is a style of seated bodywork that is typically short—10 or 40 minutes—and focuses on your back, shoulders and neck and arms.For chair bodywork, you are seated in a special chair with your face resting in a cradle, looking down towards the floor, with supports for your arms. Your back and neck completely relax while the therapist relieves muscle tension using Swedish bodywork moves like kneading and compression and tapotement.
There are a number of physical effects associated with bodywork therapy from which you and your loved one can benefit during your session. The reports said that scientific research supports the connection between bodywork therapy and short recovery periods for a variety of medical conditions. Among the conditions that may be eased due to bodywork therapy are musculo-skeletal disorders, fibromyalgia, insomnia, asthma, arthritis and depression. Bodywork therapy has also been shown to reduce stress and strengthen the immune system.
Walk The Back
Walking on back bodywork, also called ashiatsu bodywork, is a centuries-old bodywork technique originally performed by monks; today, this technique is becoming increasingly popular in America. This controlled deep tissue bodywork has many benefits. If you’ve ever heard of Swedish bodywork, ashiatsu bodywork is somewhat like that – only much deeper and more penetrating than that performed by the hands. Because the body work done can be performed at a much deeper level than through traditional hand bodywork, clients can see benefits much more quickly than they otherwise might.
Deep tissue bodywork is designed to relieve pain and muscle tension throughout the body. This type of bodywork is extremely beneficial because it reaches the deepest layer of muscles, fascia (connective tissue surrounding the joints) and tendons. The goal in deep tissue bodywork is to breakdown adhesions (tense areas within the muscle). Adhesions in the muscle are very important to address because they cause pain, inflammation and limit motion of the muscles and joints.
Reflexology has been practiced in many cultures for centuries to promote health and well-being. Today, reflexology is considered a complementary and alternative medicine used by millions to relieve pain, reduce stress and anxiety, rehabilitate injuries and boost general health. The practice of foot reflexology involves applying pressure to specific points on the feet in order to affect various parts of the body.
A Combination Bodywork is a bodywork integrating more than one style or bodywork modality. It can combine techniques from Swedish bodywork, deep tissue bodywork, reflexology, trigger point therapy and hot stone. These combinations are used to tailor the bodywork towards your personal preferences and specific needs.
