Many Native American tribes had their own form of body work. Cherokee Bodywork is a modality as taught to Phoenix by Native American healers Dr Lewis Mehl-Madrona and Dr Robert Crocker. This unique eclectic approach presumes a mind/body connection and includes an understanding of pressure point and knot release, energy lines similar to the meridian system, joint release and subtle body work.
Cherokee body work proposes that ‘blocks’ can be released by physical manipulation and by attending at the same time to metaphors that arise during the work – a physical pain might be invited to ‘speak’, or imagined to have a physical body itself in order to glean information about a pain. These elements are documented in the SWIMMER papers held in the Smithsonian Institute.
