Your prescription for healing is not always in a pill.
Traditional medicine can be helpful and often lifesaving. However, it cannot address all ailments and sometimes doesn’t help at all. Our body has built-in systems to naturally repair and restore itself, like when a cut heals on its own. There are many ways we support those systems to help the body better heal itself.
Bodywork RX provides a core group of medical massage techniques to specifically assist your natural healing systems.
Surgery, cancer treatment, musculoskeletal injury, or other systemic conditions, like autoimmune disorders, slow down your overall recovery process.
Manual Lymphatic drainage (MLD) stimulates the body’s lymphatic system to reduce swelling faster, to remove cellular waste more efficiently, and to boost the immune system for a more effective response. Myofascial release reduces old scar tissue, helps diminish new scar formation, and breaks down tight fascial connective tissue that restricts muscle, tendon, and skin movement. General full body massage therapy decreases muscle spasms, improves nutrient rich blood flow, and reduces stress.
We simply want to help you feel better.
There are times when a disease is not recoverable, when the damage from an injury is irreparable, or when the body is in its natural state of decline during the sunset period of life. These gentle techniques are valuable to help your body adjust to its new normal and adapt during each stage of an advancing condition with greater comfort.
The body responds when you give it what it needs, yet the discovery process can be frustrating, especially when you don’t feel well. We are here to support you, work with your Doctor(s) and other providers, within our capacity, to reduce that frustration.
