Our society today is slowly acclimating itself with ancient but proven fundamental preventative healthcare measures. My mission here at The Bodyworker is simple: encourage those looking to reconnect with their bodies by providing professional alternative healthcare. I provide relief to those suffering from structural and muscular imbalance by applying premium bodywork care to return the body back to homeostasis. I specialize in Sports Performance, Injury, and Relief work. Triggar Point and Structural Techniques are the key to my success.
The Bodyworker was opened to separate itself from the over saturated spa-like environments. There are no fancy slippers, no singing whales or Enya. Mini waterfalls make clients think to use the bathroom, and no harmonious sounds of two sea gulls negotiating over the remains of a fish'n'chip order either. Here at The Bodyworker you will experience the effect of a highly trained Therapist whose goal centralizes around the comprehension of Anatomy, and the Kinesthetics behind pain and/or injury you are suffering from. Are you an athlete looking to maximize your performance level? Sore from all the training? Tweaked your neck at work? Had a car accident?We take your insurance. Try The Bodyworker our name say's it all and we network with the best.
I believe as a health professional, it is essential to do more than just treat muscular stress and injuries. By taking advantage of comprehensive Bodywork programs such as my Ball Therapy, my clients learn how to incorporate self-care into their daily lives and ultimately enhance overall wellness. Life is the process of how we react to life's curveballs. The Bodyworker is in the business of giving you a fighting chance against the harshness of the physical world by helping prevent it ever from magnifying. I want to thank you for taking the time to learn more about what is offered here at the Nord'east location and I look forward to working with you in the near future.
Peter Erik Pawlowski LMT - Owner of The Bodyworker
Peter Pawlowski has been practicing Bodywork for 4 years. He received his education from one of the top programs in the nation, The Denver School of Massage Therapy. He began his career in Aspen, Colorado working with extreme sport enthusiasts while also working as a whitewater raft guide and training for the US National White Water Competition in Gore Canyon, CO.
In his earlier years Peter played professional soccer for the Mirimar Rangers in Wellington, New Zealand. Helping the team win the National title. This athletic background gives him a unique motivation and connection between therapist and client whether athlete or working individual. Dedication to team has evolved into dedication to his clients and community. His own personal experience and understanding of pain, tolerance of pain, personal steps in preventative health care, and knowledge of anatomy, all combined with a natural gift of highly dependable intuition gives anyone interested in Bodyworks the "my therapist understands me" experience.
Today there is a movement by Bodyworkers to separate themselves from massage therapists/masseurs. Peter is thoroughly changing the way people view muscular preventative healthcare. There is a substantial difference in the application of proper specific education and the commitment to upholding the laws of muscle behaviors. These are important distinctions to make when looking for a Therapist, and every client must ask what service are they truly looking for. Have you been receiving the right therapy and techniques you need? Peter's goal is to be recognized as a top Structural Bodyworker and wellness provider. He has quickly and quietly been doing so since opening his very own practice in Northeast Minneapolis in 2010
Changed my life
In working with Peter and the upper cervical specialist (he had referred me to) my life has changed drastically for the better. I no longer have back pains or headaches and we are working on gaining more flexibility. I have been to many massage therapists and chiropractors but non have given me these results. It is beyond belief. I strongly encourage others to give it a try.

Whether you are a career person, an athlete, injured in a car accident, or just the everyday person looking for some clearer answers to some nagging pain or discomfort that you can't shake. Doing this structural assessment package is well worth your time and money. We make investments in many area's of our life and it's time you make one with your present health by receiving a throughout assessment of what your body is looking like structurally. This assessment includes 3 separate 70 min sessions with 20 min consultations where I sit with you to help decipher whether or not your issues are being caused by the 3 traditional stresses;
1) Acute injury i.e. pulled muscle
2) Emotional holding i.e. past emotional experiences are and can be held within muscle fibers
3) Biochemical i.e. scar tissue or sprained ankles.
Stress is a huge and all-encompassing word but here at The Bodyworker I look to see if this stress is stimulated by a 4th possibility. Which is:
4) Neurological complications; caused by a misalignment at the very first vertebrae called the Atlas.
Upon completion of a Structural Assessment, every client will be given a recommendation based on the gathered information to how best to proceed. Searching for this 4th cause of tension and the very idea of checking for Atlas misalignment is not found in our Medical offices or the Massage field. This consideration is very unique to The Bodyworker and should not be confused with Neuromuscular Therapy. Looking and deciphering this 4th Origin of stress has proven to be a key component to unveiling WHY other therapies have not been able to work for your chronic stress, joint deterioration, nerve conditions, migraines, fatigue, back pain to name a few. After the assessment you will be receiving a significant amount of information about your body and a balanced recommendation to how massage therapy can be part of your life.
It happens to the best of us. Life throws us some curveballs and before we know it our health takes a dive. Health is a broad and all in-compassing term, however, you probably are reading this because you want health change, you've tried to change...You even joined a Health Club, but still no change. One of the hardest conflicts and fine lines to tread for any medical practitioner, has to be the hard cold fact that not all clients are created equal and applicable therapy is relative to a clients condition. But the hardest cases need only the simplest adjustments at times. One of the last and most powerful freedoms we have in this world is the choice of what we put in our mouths. Recognizing your food envirnonment can be and must be the first step in eliminating unwanted pain. That is why The Bodyworker has developed the Inside-Out program. This program is for any person looking to witness the effects food can have on your pain or stagnant position. Remember you're reading this because you are looking for help and I've created this program because .....I need you to help me before I can help you. (breeze through some reviews if this all seems hooky) Today we are exposed to hundreds of Diets, Ultra-slimfasts, supplements, Jenny Craig programs, the list goes on and on. The problem is that learning is never established! Much out there is Give-you-a-fish plan but never a Teach-you-how-to-fish plan. This is a 4-8 week program where you make a short term commitment to your therapist in order to make long term investment in your health.
The simple guidelines are as follows.
1) Show up to your 4 scheduled massages
2) Follow the thoroughly detailed Soup Program 100% (Rice Bran included)
