Remedial massage can stimulate our body's blood supply, make joints more mobile, and help to repair damaged tissues. Our therapists will aim to balance the length, tone and tension of muscles and tendons, which can restore optimal joint positions, increase blood flow, relieve pain and tension.
It is used to locate and repair damaged areas of the body and speed up the body’s own healing processes. The pressure applied in this healing treatment can either be strong and deep or gentle and shallow, depending on the problem. Problems with the muscles can trigger or radiate pain to other parts of the body. Remedial massage aims to trace the original reason for the pain, tackling both the cause of the problem and the symptoms to compliment other forms of rehabilitation.
Remedial massage can be used to help people with:
Neck, shoulder or back pain
Sports or other injuries
Anxiety or depression
Side effects of medical illness such as cancer or diabetes
