What is Remedial Massage?

Remedial massage is a type of therapeutic massage that aims to alleviate pain and discomfort in the body by targeting specific areas of tension or dysfunction. Typically it is used to treat musculoskeletal conditions such as back pain, neck pain, headaches, and sports injuries.

The goal is to identify the root cause of the pain or dysfunction and address it directly. This involves a detailed assessment of your posture, movement patterns, and any other factors that may be contributing to the problem. Following this, our therapist will then use a range of techniques to release tension and restore balance to the affected areas.

Some of the techniques used include:

  • Deep tissue massage: This involves applying deep pressure to the muscles and connective tissue to release tension and promote relaxation.
  • Trigger point therapy: This involves applying pressure to specific points in the muscles that are causing pain or discomfort.
  • Myofascial release: This involves applying sustained pressure to the connective tissue surrounding the muscles to release tension and improve mobility.
  • Stretching: This involves using gentle stretches to help lengthen tight muscles and improve range of motion.

How does it work?

Remedial massage works by increasing blood flow to the affected areas, which helps to promote healing and reduce pain. It also helps to release tension in the muscles and connective tissue, which can improve range of motion and flexibility.

What are the benefits?

There can be many benefits including:

  1. Pain relief.  It can help to alleviate pain and discomfort in the body, particularly in the back, neck, shoulders, and other areas prone to tension and stress.
  2. Improved posture.  By releasing tension in the muscles and promoting relaxation, remedial massage can help to improve posture and reduce the risk of injury.
  3. Increased range of motion and flexibility.  Helps to improve flexibility and range of motion in the joints and muscles, which can improve athletic performance and reduce the risk of injury.
  4. Improved circulation.  By increasing blood flow to the affected areas, remedial massage can help to promote healing and reduce inflammation.
  5. Stress relief.  Help to reduce stress and promote relaxation, which can have a positive impact on mental health and wellbeing.
  6. Injury prevention.  By identifying and addressing areas of tension or dysfunction, remedial massage can help to prevent injuries and improve overall athletic performance.
