Remedial massage is a targeted form of rehabilitative and restorative treatment for aches, chronic pains and knots, or for just about any discomfort emanating from your muscles or soft tissues.
Remedial massage targets problem areas caused by any activity and uses various specialised techniques such as deep tissue, myofascial release, trigger point therapy and stretching. Massage is applied with the hands, fingers, elbows, forearm, or feet, using oils, creams or balms to help release everything from chronic tight muscle to excess fluids. Targeted tissues include muscles, tendons, ligaments, skin, joints, or other connective tissue, as well as lymphatic vessels, or organs of the gastrointestinal system.
Remedial massage helps to treat a number of health issues ranging from sports and dance injuries, sciatica, and muscle cramps to whiplash, arthritis and frozen shoulder. Remedial massage has particular success with long-lasting soft tissue complaints, from chronic back and neck tension, to speeding up repair of soft tissue injuries. By stimulating the blood supply and improving overall circulation, remedial massage can help repair damaged tissues, joint mobility and increase flexibility. Additional benefits also include relaxed muscles and connective tissue, improved recovery time from injury, and reduced stress. This targeted type of treatment can result in all-round health improvement including improved mobility, better sleep, and increased performance levels and general well being.
Before commencing your treatment our trained therapists will get a full understanding of your medical history, possible cause of injury and pain, and your customised requirements. In professional settings for remedial massage, the client is treated while lying on a massage table and may be partly unclothed with parts of the body covered with towels or sheets for modesty and comfort. The treatment can be specific to an acute area of the body or a more general full-body session to relax, release and restore the body. Your trained massage therapist will check on comfort and pressure throughout your session. Remedial massage is often done over a series of sessions with a specific goal in mind so that your massage therapist can track progress and recovery.
