What is Remedial Massage?
Remedial massage is the systematic assessment and treatment of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body to assist in rehabilitation, pain and injury management.
Remedial massage stimulates the circulatory system, encouraging blood flow to the injured or tight tissue. As the circulatory system works in close proximity to the lymphatic system, the massage will improve lymphatic flow and promote reduced pain and swelling.
Remedial massage has a direct impact on the muscular system, stretching tight muscles, relaxing and releasing overused muscles, reducing spasms and muscular cramping, as well as assisting in tissue regeneration.
Remedial massage can promote a decrease in cortisol, which is produced when we experience pain and stress. Massage also promotes an increased level of serotonin and dopamine, which improves your mood, promotes relaxation, and assists in relieving pain. Positive follow on effects are a reduction in anxiety, and enhanced sleep, concentration and energy levels.
Remedial massage holistically treats the whole body and traces the discomfort as far as possible back to the original cause, healing both the cause of the disorder as well as the symptoms, and provides an effective healing treatment.
Remedial Massage is effective in treating a wide range of conditions and ailments, such as, but not limited to:
Neck pain, Back pain, Tension headache, Jaw pain, Frozen shoulder, Arthritis, Sciatica, Tennis elbow, Plantar fasciitis and Stress
