Massage or therapeutic touch, reflexology, reiki, shiatsu, and many other methods of physically or energetically manipulative bodywork can be powerful alternative medicines in practicing self-care. Working with an experienced certified therapist to assess and promote wellbeing, rehabilitation, circulation, lymphatic drainage, and the like has been known to reduce pain, anxiety, and even depression. Many forms of bodywork are done on a massage chair or table. Together with acupuncture and Chiropractic manipulation of the spine and joints, bodywork modalities have a positive effect on the nervous system; however, they are not meant to replace a primary care provider for most medical conditions.
