Remedial Massage Therapy is a fantastic way to release tension within the muscles of your body

Remedial massage, otherwise known as medical massage or sports massage is a complementary therapy which aims to treat muscles that are damaged, knotted, tense or immobile and useful for a number of problems that affect the muscles, tendons and bones.

Remedial Massage is used to locate and repair damaged areas of the body and speed up the body’s own healthy process. It involves the assessment, analysis and treatment of your body. An umbrella term for a wide range of soft tissue techniques that aim to improve posture and flexibility, relieve sore muscles, prevent and/or manage injury and improve sports performance.
Some of the reasons our patients come to see our Remedial Massage Therapists;

  • Experiencing pain or tightness in an area of your body and it doesn’t seem to be getting better on its own.
  • For tight or sore muscles.
  • Prevention or management of injury and/or improve sports performance.

Health Benefits of Remedial Massage?

Remedial Massage Therapy is a fantastic way to release tension within the muscles of your body whilst improving flexibility, reducing stress & tension, and improving general movement and performance. Remedial massage can stimulate the blood supply, make joints more mobile, and help to repair damaged tissues. The therapist will aim to balance the length, tone and tension of muscles and tendons, which restores the correct position of the bones, increases blood flow and helps heal injuries.

Easing and stabilising the muscles can improve problems such as;

  • Decreasing pain and alleviating chronic pain conditions.
  • Aching and stiff muscles from workplace ergonomics
  • Lack of flexiblity and tighness in muscles
  • Stiffness and lack of range and motion in joints
  • Assist with general stress and fatigue
  • Prevention and management of sports and soft tissue injuries.
  • Releasing tension and tightness in the muscles.
  • Increase blood flow and oxygen to treatment area.
  • Faster recovery time for athletes or people who train rigorously.
