Which Bodywork Treatment Is Right For Me?

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.
