Remedial massage is used to locate and repair damaged areas of the body and speed up the body’s own healing processes. The pressure applied in this healing treatment can either be strong and deep or gentle and shallow, depending on the problem.
Problems with the muscles can trigger or radiate pain to other parts of the body. Remedial massage aims to trace the original reason for the pain, tackling both the cause of the problem and the symptoms.
WHAT CAN IT TREAT?
Remedial massage has been found to reduce both physical and emotional stress. This massage technique is also beneficial for reducing depression and anxiety, improving sleep and concentration, and boosting energy levels. Remedial massage boosts immunity, corrects postural issues and increases joint mobility and flexibility. Remedial massage therapists can use a number of stretching and mobilisation techniques that help improve circulation, loosen muscles and ease tension. This not only helps reduce pain and stiffness but also increases joint strength, stability, mobility and flexibility. Lastly, it improves sleep and concentration.
WHO CAN BENEFIT FROM A REMEDIAL MASSAGE?
Remedial massage can stimulate the blood supply, make joints more mobile, and help to repair damaged tissues. The therapist will aim to balance the length, tone and tension of muscles and tendons, which restores the correct position of the bones, increases blood flow and helps heal injuries.
Easing and stabilising the muscles can improve problems such as headaches, abdominal pain, lower back pain and sciatic nerve pain.
Some health problems that are often treated with remedial massage include sporting and dance injuries, muscle cramps, whiplash, muscular atrophy, fibrositis, spondylitis, arthritis and frozen shoulder.
