WHAT IS REMEDIAL MASSAGE
Remedial massage is an effective, science – based approach to healthcare with a vast evidential base of effectiveness, in a range of conditions which are varied.
Remedial massage involves a role in healthcare maintenance and preventative medicine. Clients who present for massage therapy without symptoms are somewhat surprised when they feel the ropiness of fibrotic tissues or the tightness of a muscle being stretched. They are being made aware of potential muscle imbalances or compensations that could lead to future problems. An early intervention by correcting posture, improving manual handling techniques, or modifying an exercise program may divert potential problems.
What Conditions Can We Treat?
Remedial massage is not limited to preventative healthcare though, with an integrated framework for assessing and treating musculoskeletal injuries your massage therapist is able to treat acute conditions like ankle sprains & muscle strains, as well as painful conditions that don’t ever seem to go away such as; stress, sciatica, tennis elbow, wry neck, headaches, lower back pain, and knee pain etc.
There are several techniques in a massage therapist’s toolkit which can be used and we will discuss these techniques with you prior to your treatment.
The pressure applied in this healing treatment can either be firm or gentle, depending on the problem.
