When muscles and tendons become damaged or impaired, knotted and tense or immobile, Remedial Massage provides a healing treatment that can be gentle or strong, deep or shallow. Remedial massage holistically treats the whole body and traces the discomfort as far as possible back to the original cause, healing both the cause of the disorder as well as the symptoms.
Key benefits of Remedial Massage include: the stimulation to the blood supply allowing toxins in the muscles to be removed; the calming of the peripheral nervous system to ease pain and discomfort; and the toning and relaxing of muscles to improve joint mobility. An improvement to the health of the cells, the repairing of tissues, and the easing of stiffness and tension can also be experienced through therapeutic relaxation.
Modalities used in our remedial massage sessions include a variety of massage techniques ranging from gentle Swedish relaxation strokes to deep pressure to target trigger points and locked joints.
Muscular and skeletal dysfunctions often addressed with Remedial Massage include Fibrosis, Spondylitis, Arthritis, frozen shoulder, muscular cramps, Whiplash, muscular atrophy, and general neck or back pain.
Remedial massage can also be a effective way of managing discomfort during pregnancy.
WHAT TO EXPECT
An initial consultation for remedial massage will take an hour with subsequent sessions ranging from 30mins to 1 hour. Many remedial massage patients book in for monthly maintenance sessions so we can address small problems before they grow into chronic injuries.
