Massage, bodywork and somatic therapies are defined as the application of various techniques to the muscular structure and soft tissues of the human body. Massage is the application of soft-tissue manipulation techniques to the body, intended to reduce stress and fatigue while improving circulation. Bodywork uses various forms of touch therapies such as manipulation, movement, and/or re-patterning to affect structural changes to the body. Somatic, meaning “the body,” is used to denote a body/mind or whole body approach distinguished from a physiology-only perspective.
There are over 250 variations of massage, bodywork, and somatic therapies and many therapists use multiple techniques. These all involve pressing, rubbing, or manipulating muscles and other soft tissues with hands and fingers. Sometimes, even forearms, elbows, or feet are used. This may include non-forceful passive or active movement and application of techniques intended to affect the energetic systems of the body.
