What Do We Mean By Bodywork?
Well our bodies tend to tell a story, be it that of dexterity and healthy mobility, or of a history of climbing trees, falling of horses and running. It could also be the common story of deskwork, stiffness and stress.
Whether you are recovering from an operation, are holding all your stress around your ears, or are having joint troubles, a treatment that deals with the body mechanics can be of great benefit to your health and wellbeing.
We don’t always need to have something rubbed better; we sometimes need realignment, guidance with corrective exercises or assistance in joint mobilization.
So which would you go for and why? Well a lot of that can be determined by your disposition and what type of bodywork appeals to you. Often a combination of treatments can really get to the bottom of the situation.

Essentially this treatment can feel like the stretch that you have always needed, but just couldn’t quite do yourself. Our Fascia surrounds every muscle and organ within our body; it is one complete web. Some parts of it can get stuck and stiff, other parts of it can be as fluid as liquid.
A Fascia Practitioner can help you discover where your restrictions manifest. The pain may be in the shoulder but it could be coming from the opposite hip. At times this is a strong treatment, in other moments it can be a very subtle touch to help the tissue ease out and let go of its holding habit.
Well this form of bodywork feels much more self explanatory, but did you know that Osteopathy also helps with muscle tissue, ligaments and tendons as well as your bones?
