“Manual therapy” is any kind of therapy that uses the practitioner’s hands as part of the healing process. Massage therapy, physical therapy, acupuncture, and chiropractic are all examples of manual therapy modalities. Historically, manual therapies have been at the forefront of bodymindspirit integration. With their ability to help build embodied awareness, touch is a vital part of whole person health and well-being.
