Massage therapy is a beautiful mosaic of modalities offering something for everyone. From all ages to most conditions, there's a bodywork fi t. For instance: • Massage therapy is one of the leading solutions for low-back pain in the United States. • Conditions ranging from autism to fi bromyalgia can benefi t from appropriate bodywork. • Oncology massage is one of the most popular specialties and is increasingly being integrated into holistic treatment plans. What's most important is what massage therapy can do for you. There's nothing like a one-hour Swedish massage—the most popular form of bodywork offered—to reconnect you with your inner self, invigorate your body, and help you refocus on self-care, but have you ever tried another modality like lymph massage or refl exology? Following is a guide to help you explore the many types of bodywork. Use the fl owchart on the next pages and the corresponding glossary to learn about massage and bodywork for the fi rst time, or to branch out and try something new from the hundreds of touch therapy options.
