Body therapies (Bodywork) - Ethnoscience Glossary Terms and Abbreviations
The term "body therapies" has traditionally been used to describe practices that involve physical treatments, or manipulations of the body, skeletal system, nerves or muscles. Body therapies are "hands-on" approaches - such as massage that are used to improve the structure and functioning of the human body. Some people include indirect manipulations such as drugs and natural health products in a larger definition of body therapies.
