As one of Hong Kong’s most acclaimed and sought-after medical healthcare experts, Caroline Rhodes’ unique approach stems from her training in the US where the emphasis at university was differential diagnosis and assessment of musculoskeletal disorders.
Caroline’s specialty is acute and chronic sacro-iliac joint dysfunction, low back, upper back and neck pain.
With over 2000 hours in continuing education on the treatment of the spine, pelvis, head/neck, Caroline has trained with some of the best practitioners in the US in her 30-year career to find the root cause of your pain and restricted motion.
During her years at university, Caroline became interested in treating the head and jaw and took extensive anatomy training and advanced manual therapy techniques. This lead her to learn other forms of therapy such as Cranio Sacral therapy and working with the temporal-mandibular joint and the treatment of infants who had challenges with digestion, spinal alignment and misshapen heads and faces.
As early as 2000, Caroline identified a pressing need in Hong Kong for a new, integrated approach to dealing with chronic pain and other health issues. She founded Body Central in the same year and the clinic quickly became Hong Kong’s optimal practice for craniofacial (head and face) and spine disorders serving adults, infants and children. In May 2004, she launched The Body Group, which continues to raise awareness of how one can achieve healing and resolution of pain by combining physiotherapy and holistic therapies.
During her years of working with patients and listing to her clients explain their health issues, Caroline became to understand that the stress and past traumas her patients expressed, affected their healing and could contribute to their health. Caroline became certified in Emotional Freedom Technique and Matrix Reimprinting which are forms of therapy for accessing the subconscious while massaging acupuncture points for phenomenal results. Caroline became a master trainer in these techniques and offers training throughout Asia.
Caroline’s approach focuses on not only on the physical but also the physiological and emotional aspects of each person. The physical body includes trauma or longterm neglect. Physiological issues may include digestive issues, poor circulation, radiation nerve pain, and sluggish lymphatic circulation due to either surgery or other forms of toxicity.
With clients from across Asia Pacific, the US and Europe, Caroline is regarded as a local authority and is regularly featured in the media on a variety of topics from infant care to adult care. She is a prolific public speaker and runs workshops focusing on natural therapies, digestive health, Emotional Freedom Technique (EFT), as well as providing educational tools for treatment of the lymphatic system and breast care.
Caroline has a Bachelor of Science degree in Science and Physical Therapy from Northern Arizona University (USA) and has completed over 2500 classroom hours in continuing education. Many of Caroline’s courses in the US include advanced training in the craniosacral system, head, neck and spine mechanics, temporal mandibular joint dysfunction, (TMJ) advanced training at San Diego State University on TMJ dysfunction and advanced head and neck dissection. While in California, Caroline recognised the need for early treatment of infants with misalignment of the skull bones and misshapen heads in order to minimise the need for orthodontic work and face and jaw surgery later in life. Similarly, misalignment of the spine needs early treatment in order to prevent scoliosis, a permanent curvature of the spine. These and other health issues can be prevented or minimised if dealt with early enough.
Caroline’s extensive experience covers:
Acute Neurology, Outpatient Orthopaedics, General Medical, Surgical and Sports Medicine and Inpatient Arthritis Rehabilitation. Her past positions include Director of Physical Therapy for the Sansum Medical Clinic, and Director of Rhodes Physical Therapy in Santa Barbara (CA).
She has qualifications in the following:

My daughter was given a thorough assessment followed by detailed explanation of her condition. Body Group staff were extremely caring, thoughtful in the entire process (June 2015 – Mar 2016). Therapists are very knowledgeable and very willing to share their experiences and going the extra mile in their treatment. Very thankful for Body Group!JanHong Kong
I feel blessed having had the chance to be introduced to EFT and Matrix Reimprinting. Not only did it help myself to improve my well being in all aspects of my life, but I also can help others to improve the quality of their lives. This is an amazing tool we can always go back to when I we have the feeling that there is no way out. Caroline Rhodes is a very experienced and professional EFT and MR practitioner who I only can recommend.Ling YeeAromatherapist, Hong Kong
An excellent and really eye-opening training that is driven by a desire to truly help people. The skills I learned I use regularly and they really work!Andy ClarkMaster Trainer, Hong Kong
Caroline’s EFT & MR courses are interesting and engaging; a perfect blend of learning, practicing and experiencing these life-changing techniques. EFT is such a fantastic tool to have at my fingertips every day. I started by using it with myself and my family and since I started integrating it with my counselling practice, all my clients benefit from this therapeutic technique. Attending Caroline’s EFT & MR courses literally changed my life for the better.FaluHong Kong
Stiffness and pain in shoulders, neck and lower back. The frequency of the pain is less. The conditions listed above are generally much more manageable. Very satisfied. Everyone always wants to get an appointment. The staff are friendly and make an effort to know me and my family members’ names. The ability of more than one practitioner to work at one time means that lots can be carried out in one treatment. Feeling better after even one treatment.RobynHong Kong
Well, I loved the whole thing, I think it’s wonderful, I’ve been in psychotherapy for 4 to 5 years and I think I got rid more emotional blocks in 30 minutes than I had in 5 years.Dr. Vicky BeloManila
I really enjoyed EFT Levels 1 & 2. Caroline showed how easy it is to use EFT on anything: physical pain, emotions, money, phobias, cravings and much more. EFT for Parenting helped me achieve a shift as parent. I am now calmer, more rational and I tap my children regularly for all sorts of issues, ranging from being afraid of the dark to exams (piano, math). This course is for anyone who would like more out of life and for those who want more skills in parenting. Thank you so much, Caroline!L.C.Hong Kong
My newborn baby was diagnosed for Torticollis and he also had very low bowel movements (once each 6 days). Caroline fixed it just in a couple of sessions and I can tell you that the baby is now 10 months old and his position is very straight. Regarding the bowel movements, he just started to improve once he started eating solids. I am very glad that my Doctor told me to go to The Body Group. I will certainly come back if I need to.FlorenciaHong Kong
I had a mind blowing experience with Caroline Rhodes, I was close to have a slipped disc and under Caroline’s care, after just a few sessions she was able to reset my disc in a proper position. I went from excruciating pain to an almost normal state within just a few sessions. Thank you very much for this wonderful help.ClareHong Kong
