What is Bodywork?

Bodywork is a whole body approach to reducing pain and increasing mobility. Its unique and holistic approach works the connective tissue (fascia) to foster healing and provide injury protection.
You know that hip that's been bothering you? The problem may not be your hip, the problem may originate from trauma somewhere else in your body. Our job is to first identify and then treat the underlying cause of your issue. Focusing on your hip may give you temporary relief but treating the source of your issue will provide lasting relief. By taking a whole body approach, we get to the root of the problem, sometimes from decades old injuries, and promote blood flow to restore healthy tissue.

How can bodywork help you?

Injury

Injury can be caused by a trauma, overuse or imbalance in the body. Bodywork can reduce the damage to the tissue to reduce pain and speed up healing.

What Our Clients Are Saying

  • "I am an active walker and yogi. Several years ago I had frozen shoulder that required surgery, post surgery I went to PT. On completion of PT my therapist recommended I see Bob at BWM to continue working on my range of motion. Bob significantly improved my range of motion, a few years later I developed frozen shoulder on my other shoulder and I didn’t need surgery, Bob was able to work on my shoulder to decrease the pain and increase my range of motion.

    I have recommended dozens of people to Bob, I truly believe that anyone that has pain in their body or lack of range of motion could benefit and avoid surgery/medication. My husband, children and siblings have all been treated at BWM. My husband and I keep regular appointments with Bob for maintenance."

    - Suzanne L.

  • "I’m retired and actively participate in golf, softball and fitness training. I had a knee replacement and post surgery I had a lack of range of motion and flexion. My son in California found BWM online after I tried PT and stretching on my own.

    I would absolutely refer Bob, he is extremely knowledgeable and experienced. He worked wonders with me over a period of 6 weeks. He is truly a “GO TO” Professional!"

    BOB W.

  • "I started getting bodywork at BWM after a rotator cuff surgery and months of PT with no relief of pain. I was at an exercise class when a friend recommended I see Bob. I was receiving cortisone shots and ready to schedule a second rotator cuff surgery. After 2 sessions with Bob I cancelled my second surgery and continued my sessions with Bob. I highly recommend Bob and have referred many friends and family to him."

    TIFFANY C.

  • I started coming to Bodywork Masters after I ended up in the Emergency Room for severe back pain caused by sciatica. The pain I experienced was intense, a 9 out of a scale of 10. I had shooting pain and numbness running from my low back and down both of my legs. The ER prescribed muscle relaxers but it was difficult to sleep, drive or even walk.

    I saw Bob a few days after the ER and could barely walk from the car to the office. After one session my pain was 30% less. I returned each week for more bodywork and within three sessions I was 80% better and each visit since I continue to get better and now have almost no back pain.

    Since I’ve been coming to Bodywork Masters I no longer need the muscle relaxers and I’m back to all my regular activities. Most importantly, I’m pain free.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I expect from my first bodywork session?

During your first session you will complete a form with your presenting issues. Your therapist will discuss with you what the issue may be and then you will start your bodywork session. You may experience some bruising or red marks, this will depend on the state of the tissue being worked on. Bodywork can feel intense, especially the first session if there is an injury or trauma to the tissue.

What should I wear?

You should wear, or not wear, whatever will make you feel comfortable. You want to be sure the therapist can easily access whatever area is causing pain.

How often should I come?

That will vary based on your injury or condition of your tissue. If you have an acute issue that is causing pain or discomfort you may need to come more often in the beginning , every 10 days to 2 weeks, and spread out sessions as you heal. We recommend that you come every 4-6 weeks for maintenance to keep you body healthy. Your therapist will be able to give you a personal recommendation.

Do you accept insurance?

We accept FSA, Flexible Spending Accounts. You can use your FSA debit card or we can write you a receipt. We are working with some specific insurance companies to offer a discount on our services. We will post the details once we have worked out an arrangement.
