Remedial Massage is performed by a qualified Massage Therapist who has extensive knowledge and understanding of the human anatomy and muscular-skeletal.
Remedial Massage has been proven to perform well, providing the following results:
Blood Supply Stimulation – Massage may help with the blood to circulate which in turn nourishes and re-establishes a system to keep the flesh healthier. An indication of poor circulation can include cold hands and toes, swollen fingers, feet and ankles.
Toxin Clearing – Toxic poison in the muscles can take the form of inflammation or persistent bruising. Soft tissue worked on during remedial massage clears the toxins and brings back healthy flesh.
Skin Nourishment – Massage can give the skin a healthy glow, refreshing the skin which has become dry as a result of poor circulation.
Calming of the Peripheral Nerves – Nerves that have become damaged by infection or injury can be treated by soft tissue massage which will help to bring in fresh blood to nourish the area. Regular gentle massage helps any sensitive areas to recover and regain their natural function.
Swelling Reduction – Massage above and around an inflamed joint encourages the fluid which is causing the swelling to disperse, promoting healthy lubrication and allowing swollen areas to return to normal movement and size.
Relaxation – There is nothing quite like a massage to bring on relaxation. It’s no surprise that people often fall asleep during the healing process when the tension is removed from tight muscles around the neck and shoulders, the whole back as well as the legs and the arms. People suffering from poor sleeping habits or stress should recieve regular massage.
Remove Stiffness – Muscles which are overworked often stiffen up, cramp or expand painfully. When the deep soft tissue technique of remedial massage is worked it breaks down the spasm and softens up the hard tissue releasing any stiffness.
Muscle Strengthening – An effective treatment to bring back muscle strength and tone is through regular massage. This technique is most beneficial to people who suffer from Multiple Sclerosis, whose muscles have gone soft and weak or victims who’ve not used their muscles for many weeks and weakness has built due to non-use.
Joint Mobility – Muscles and joints work together, therefore the surrounding muscles are put under strain if a joint is damaged or displaced. Remedial massage can help to relax the muscles, making bone adjustment easier. To strengthen up the area and help to prevent re-occurrence, it is always recommended for follow-up treatment which will be discussed in a consult with your Massage Therapist after assessment. Good massage is essential to heal injuries such as whiplash in the neck and disc lesion in the back.
Body Re-Balancing – Massage improves body mobility particularly in the upper back neck area which is often restricted as a result of bad postural habits.
Injury Treatment – Muscles, ligaments and tendons are all susceptible to injury and require skilled massage and exercise to bring about improvement.
Pain Reduction – Spasm and tension in the muscles is often caused from pain people have in arms, legs, back, neck and head. Using massage to assist in releasing the pain at the root of the problem will often relieve symptoms such as headaches as well as muscle aches and pains.
