Remedial massage is an holistic massage treatment, used to produce deep and long-lasting effects. It aims to both prevent and help heal injuries, removing blockages and damaged cells, breaking down fibrous areas and encouraging mobility. An experienced massage therapist will be able to identify the trigger points which are at the root of the pain and use specific massage techniques to encourage the body's own healing processes.
Remedial massage can be used to treat conditions such as sports injuries, muscular cramps, frozen shoulder, whiplash, arthritis and spondylitis. It is also effective in treating stress relief and nervous exhaustion.
This therapy works by increasing lymphatic flow and blood supply to soft tissue areas, encouraging the reduction of inflammation and swelling and improving muscle tone. Used on a regular basis, remedial massage can help prevent small injuries from impairing mobility.
The experienced therapist will tailor the treatment to the needs of the individual.
