One of the ways I approach bodywork is from a movement perspective. Movement is life. When we move, our tissues receive sensation, feedback, which in turn, influences our movement choices. Our motor development is created through movement. Beyond development, as we settle into the routines of daily life, we often take movement for granted- that is, until we lose mobility due to injury, stress, trauma, illness, aging, postural patterns, repetitive movement, or lack of use. As movers, the human body and all of its systems function best when freedom of movement is not compromised by pain, tension, or inflammation.
I have come to view bodywork as an essential component, a fulcrum of my overall well-being. Because everyone needs support sometimes, bodywork is a wonderful way to set aside time for yourself for care, stress and pain management, and relaxation. Regular massage can help to restore and maintain balance in our busy, hectic, and sometimes stressful lives.
