Bodywork is a term used in alternative medicine to describe any therapeutic technique that involves working with the human body in a form involving manipulative therapy, breath work, or energy medicine. In addition, bodywork techniques aim to assess or improve posture, and promote awareness of the “mind-body connection”.
The terms massage and bodywork are often used interchangeably, however not all forms of bodywork involve physical massage. Other types of therapies such as Reiki, Yoga, Pranayama, Qi Gong, and Tai Chi are all referred to as bodywork.
The better known forms of manipulative bodywork include: the Alexander technique, Applied Kinesiology, the Bowen technique, the Feldenkrais method, Reflexology, Rolfing, and Shiatsu.
