Bodywork is any therapeutic or personal development technique that involves working with the human body in a form involving manipulative therapy, breath work, or energy medicine. Bodywork techniques also aim to assess or improve posture, promote awareness of the “body-mind connection” rather than the “mind-body connection”, or to manipulate the electromagnetic field surrounding the human body and affecting health.
