Remedial Massage

Massage is one of the world’s oldest treatments. It’s been scientifically proven to reduce stress,
boost your immune system and aid in muscle relaxation to support injury prevention and recovery.

Remedial massage is a hands on therapy which aims to treat muscles that are damaged, knotted, tense or immobile. This treatment is used to identify and repair damaged areas of the body, whilst aiding the body’s own healing process. Depending on the injury or desired outcome, the pressure can be of deep intensity,
or it can be more soft and gently effective.

Remedial massage therapy

Remedial massage is different to other forms of gentle relaxation massage. A remedial massage therapist undergoes extensive training to gain advanced knowledge of anatomy and physiology. It is used for the prevention and management of injuries, particularly soft tissue injuries. Therapists are trained to assess your body, observe changes over time and design individual treatment plans for each client.

Remedial massage is so much more than a “feel-good” massage. Specific techniques are used to address your injury, postural or joint issues. Remedial massage is frequently performed in conjunction with other health professionals such as a Physiotherapist as part of a whole treatment plan.

Key Benefits

Relieve tight muscles

Trigger point release and stretching techniques elongate muscles that are abnormally tight. This helps break down adhesions such as scar tissue that may have formed after an injury.

Reduce stress

Massage promotes a decrease in cortisol, the hormone produced when we are stressed or in pain. This also encourages improved levels of serotonin and dopamine, improving mood, encouraging relaxation and relieving pain.

Improve circulation

This therapy encourages blood flow to the tissues being treated by stimulating the circulatory system. Increasing blood flow helps speed up the healing process and repair damaged tissue.
