Intended to improve or correct something. (Macmillan Dictionary)
When muscles and tendons become damaged or impaired, knotted and tense or immobile, Remedial Massage provides a healing treatment of specific muscles. It uses several specialised techniques or modalities to locate and repair damage and to support and speed up the body’s own repair mechanisms. These include trigger point therapy, myofacial release, deep tissue, , sports massage, heat therapy, myofascial dry needling and more. Remedial massage usually treats a specific problematic part of the body and traces the discomfort as far as possible back to the original cause, healing both the cause of the disorder as well as the symptoms.
Key benefits of Remedial Massage include:
- The stimulation to the blood supply allowing toxins in the muscles to be removed;
- The calming of the peripheral nervous system to ease pain and discomfort;
- The toning and relaxing of muscles to improve joint mobility and referred pain.
- An improvement to the health of the cells, the repairing of tissues, and the easing of stiffness and tension can also be experienced through therapeutic relaxation.
