What exactly is Remedial Massage?
Remedial massage is a deeper therapy which involves the assessment and treatment of muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body to assist in rehabilitation, pain reduction and injury management.
If you have long term chronic aches or suffered a recent injury resulting in structural pain and/or loss of function, a remedial massage assists in returning to normal health. It requires us to get an in-depth understanding of your unique needs. From this we use our clinical expertise to select the correct techniques and devise and implement the most beneficial treatment plan.
Remedial Massage purpose & benefits
Remedial Massage treatment aims to reverse the negative physical effects of pain and discomfort you may be experiencing.
A remedial massage is designed to balance muscle length, tension and tone which will in turn will promote the return of normal joint, capsular and bone position. The increase in the flow of blood and lymph fluid, particularly to injured areas, heals muscles and removes blockages, damaged cells, scar tissue and adhesions resulting from injury and dysfunction.
Remedial massage reduces stress, heightens mental alertness, improves posture and is paramount in escaping the vicious cycle of chronic complaints.
Studies have shown that remedial massage also provides positive health benefits for disorders such as insomnia, headaches, depression and anxiety, back pain, arthritis, high blood pressure, chronic pain and constipation.
