Bodywork

Bodywork is gentle manipulation of the body which releases muscle tension and helps with musculoskeletal problems. There are many sorts of bodywork, including infant massage which helps with muscle tightness, and osteopathic manipulative medicine which can help treat virtually any body tissues.
