Therapeutic Bodywork is an umbrella term used to describe various hands-on modalities of massage that are used to address musculoskeletal problems.
Therapeutic Bodywork sessions are tailored to treat an individual’s specific needs. No two sessions are ever the same. It is integrative in that it incorporates more than one modality of techniques to treat and resolve soft tissue problems, whether from injury or over-use. We incorporate teaching various self-care tools to speed and maintain one’s recovery.
Different modalities we may use at Eastside Wellness Center are Craniosacral Therapy, Lymphatic Drainage, Chi Nei Tsang, Reflexology, Trigger Point Therapy, and Breathe Work. We train and take continuing education to be massage practitioners. Becoming competent professionals takes time and the maturation that comes with years of experience.
