Massage Therapy Glossary



Bodywork therapies involve either, or a combination of, movement, touch, manipulation and/or energetic therapies. Many therapies fit in this category:  Physical Therapy, Lymph Drainage, Osteopathy, Chiropractic, Structural Integration, Neuromuscular Therapy, Feldenkrais®, Yoga Therapy, Dance Therapy, Physiotherapy, Pilates, Alexander Technique, Shiatsu, Occupational Therapy, Tai Chi / Qi Gong, and Myofascial Therapy.  These are systematic ‘hands on’ processes working with the soft tissues to sooth or realign the entire musculo-skeletal structure, restoring balance and ease to the body.  Most, if not all, of the therapies in this glossary would fall under the term or category of bodywork.
