    Is it the same as when the doctor pokes you in all of the tenderpoint places and asks smuggly if it hurts? or is it something else and if so, who should have it done?

    Thanks for clearing the fog,

    I don't know if this is what context you are referring to, but one type of bodymapping is used in the guaifenisin (sp?) protocol when the doctor feels for knots and hard bumps in the major muscles of the body and notes them on a body silhouette page. Doing this at intervals would allow you and he to see your progress.
