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?

Bodywork can reduce or eliminate pain from

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.

SURGERY

Bodywork can be used to prevent surgery or for post-surgery. We can can reduce inflammation, scar tissue and imbalances in the body to reduce pain.

STRESS

Stress leads to tight muscles which can lead to migraines, chronic back pain or other imbalances in the body. Bodywork can relieve tightness and allow the body to perform optimally.

REPETITIVE MOTION

Overusing the same group of muscles tends to cause tight muscles and imbalances to the joints. Bodywork can realign the body to its optimal shape.

Bodywork Techniques We Use At BWM

We utilize many different techniques to identify, treat and restore functional and structural balance to the body

Reflexology

Reflexology

Reflexology is a form of bodywork that focuses on the feet. It is the application of pressure to areas of the feet that correspond to organs, glands and other systems of the body.

Gua Sha (Graston)

Gua Sha (Graston)

Another method borrowed from acupuncture, where a blunt object (such as a smooth stone, metal spoon, or similar object) is scraped on the surface of the tissue. This is another technique to break up adhesions.

Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger Point Therapy

A treatment used when trigger points (sometimes called knots or adhesions) are found on the fascial tissue. When these areas are compressed, tenderness is felt not only in that specific area, but also radiates to other parts of the body.

Myofascial Release

Myofascial Release

Fascia is connective tissue, found just under the surface of the skin, which encompasses the whole body (holding the structure of the body together like a diving suit would.) Muscle ("myo") is intertwined with the fascial tissue, and together it makes up the myofascial structure. A fascial line may connect from toe to hamstring, up to the hip, to the lower back, up to the shoulder. When one of these areas is imbalanced or adhered to other tissue, it can disrupt the entire alignment of the structure.

This technique involves a slow, deep movement targeting the origin of the imbalance within the facial line. The area is worked to release tension, potentially built into the system over a longer period of time, eventually releasing the entire structure.

Cupping

Cupping

A procedure borrowed from the acupuncture modality, in which suction cups are applied to stagnated tissues (lumpy or bumpy surface areas) and stimulate blood-flow to amalgamate the underlying tissue. This tissues becomes warm and smooth as adhesions dissipate. Redness, bruising or discoloration around the targeted area is normal and usually fades within a few days.

Joint Therapy

Joint Therapy

Bob Tricomi's approach to chronic pain management is built on his innovative joint therapy treatment. When pain is centralized in major joint areas, Bob works to balance the dysfunctional joint structures and release tissue stagnation. This offers significant relief from that pain.

Assisted Stretching

Assisted Stretching

Postural alignment and assisted stretching techniques use stretching and strength building techniques to optimize range of motion and flexibility.

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 Lowry

  • "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 Wittman

  • "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 Crooker

  • 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.
