Remedial Massage provides a holistic healing treatment that can be gentle or strong, deep or light and uses specialised techniques to locate and repair damage when muscles have become damaged, knotted tense and immobile. Remedial massage can specifically address, treat and trace the source of muscular and skeletal dysfunctions such as Fibrositis, Spondylitis, Arthritis, Frozen shoulder, Muscular cramps or atrophy, Whiplash and Sports or Dance injuries.
Sessions usually take between 30 minutes to 60 minutes and can also be incorporated within a Full Body Massage or Hot Stone Therapeutic session to ease stiffness and tension through therapeutic relaxation. Passive stretching moves are also used to facilitate the stimulation of the blood supply allowing toxins in the muscles to be removed and the calming of the peripheral nervous system to not only ease pain and discomfort but will tone and relax the muscles to improve joint mobility.
Remedial massage holistically treats the whole body and traces the discomfort as far back as possible to locate the origin of the dysfunction and over time can repair and heal both the cause and the symptoms by incorporating the body’s own self-repair mechanisms.
