Remedial Massage is a holistic treatment and involves the use of massage and a wide range of diagnostic techniques to treat a condition. When muscles become knotted and tense or damaged, remedial massage provides a healing treatment that can be gentle or strong, deep or shallow. The therapy helps to get the blood flowing to injured tissues to speed up the repair process. Remedial massage can also be used for relaxation and general wellbeing. The therapy has both short and long-term effects on the body.
What’s the benefit of remedial massage?
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 remedial massage.
What’s the difference between remedial massage and relaxation massage?
Relaxation massage helps de-stress and loosen up your body and is great for those who work hard or feel stress. It is a pain free way to relax both your muscles and your mind.
