PUT YOUR BODY
IN GOOD HANDS
Integrated Bodywork is a massage technique that can provide effective relief from a huge range of
common aches, pains and ailments.
"When you touch one thing with deep awareness,
you touch everything."
- Lao Tzu
The brain receives constant information, mostly via the nervous system, as to the status of all tissues, organs and functions of the body. If this information is complete and accurate, the brain can orchestrate the body’s profound ability to maintain itself in a state of wellness.
Integrated Bodywork understands how this flow of information can become ‘blocked’ or incomplete, and can identify the specific places in the body where these ‘blockages’ exist. Practitioners then apply a highly practised stimulus, by hand, in specific sites and directions on the body. This in effect sends new information from these areas to the brain, which will then regulate the body more efficiently according to this new information.
Commonly these ‘blockages’ will result in unnaturally tight muscle causing compression of nerve and other tissues, in various places on the body, with accompanying stiffness, discomfort or pain, as well as affecting the performance of various organs and systems of the body. Remember that the ‘blocked’ pathways can lessen the brain’s ability to regulate any tissue in the body.
Integrated Bodywork is hugely effective in reducing or eliminating pain and discomfort, and helping the body to recover optimum mobility and function, but perhaps the most profound aspect of this technique is its ability to help the body to release compression that has been building up for years or decades.
"Massage has had a positive effect on every medical condition we’ve looked at."
