In our world, the terms “Massage Therapy” and “Bodywork” (two interchangeable terms) can refer to many modalities and different types of work. Often, it refers to the receiver being on a comfy table, under a sheet while the therapist uncovers one part of the body at a time and uses oil or lotion to perform manual therapy.
Each therapist offers a different set of techniques, often blending them together to create something unique to themselves. The techniques used and areas worked also depend on the client and the areas to be worked, so sessions also vary client to client.
During your initial session, your wellness history is reviewed and bodywork performed based on your needs. Additionally, any supporting therapies, herbs, nutritional supplements, or referrals may be discussed.
Here at Thrive for Life, Anthony and Lindsey bring their wealth of massage and bodywork experiences to the table. They both draw from over 18 years of experience and education in massage and bodywork, meditation, herbal medicine, nutrition, and spiritual healing.
