Remedial Massage

Massage is probably the earliest form of medicine known to man.

Remedial massage uses deep soft tissue massage techniques & manipulation to encourage the natural healing of the body.

How does it work?

Remedial massage can improve the function of muscles, ligaments & tendons following injury or stress & tension. It will improve circulation & reduce inflammation caused by the build up of toxins. This allows the muscles to relax & encourages the body to balance itself. Other techniques such as stretching & mobilizing can be used if appropriate.

What is pain?

It is nature’s way of telling us that something has gone wrong. Most pain has a simple physical cause, inflamed or strained muscles, restricted joints or pressure on nerves.

How can it be treated?

Routine conventional treatment with pain killers, muscle relaxants, etc., may be all that is needed. In a multitude of cases it is enough to rid the person of their painful symptoms. But if the condition persists, or continually re-occurs, alternative treatment such as Remedial Massage may be beneficial.
