There is a new modality on the block- BodyArt Therapy and it is a powerful tool to use for healing.
“BodyArt Therapy is the use of BodyArt with the goal of causing a positive change physically, emotionally, mentally or spiritually through the application of art on the body in accordance with bodywork philosophy, knowledge, assessment, and skill.”
Below are some examples:
For this client, massage was applied after the consult. Client reported pain and stiffness in her “shoulders”. After the massage, we discussed the findings of bundles, trigger points, areas of restriction and so on. The design was applied to the specific areas with spirals used to unwind bundles, directional arrows applied to enforce release of fascia.
For this client, a pattern was chosen to diffuse the surgical scar of a mastectomy and add the energy of love.
