Comprehensive bodywork is a manual based therapy which includes an array of different modalities such has myofascial release, craniosacral therapy, visceral manipulation, muscle energy and structural integration. Based on the premise that the body is a self-regulating unit, the goal of this type of bodywork is to allow the body to return to proper functionality by removing inertia within the system. This is done with subtle, minute manipulations from the therapist to entice a healing response. As a holistic therapy, this approach takes into consideration the history of traumas and their effect on the client’s resiliency, yielding a unique perspective on the symptoms. By tapping into the client’s homeostasis potential, the comprehensive bodyworker guides the body toward an increase in resiliency and a reduction of symptoms. Comprehensive bodywork can be an efficient means to reduce acute and chronic musculoskeletal symptoms. It can also be used to gain better function in healthy clients with athletic goals or for daily activities.
