When muscles and tendons become damaged or impaired, knotted, tense or immobile, Remedial Massage provides a healing treatment that can be gentle or strong, deep or shallow. Remedial massage traces the discomfort as far as possible back to the original cause and may focus on just the area concerned or work with the whole body. Remedial massage is concerned with remobilizing the body. This is achieved by increasing the blood circulation to problem areas as well as correcting parts of the body that have locked up due to overuse or weakened muscles that have caused functional imbalance. Remedial massage can reduce calcification, increase the full range of movement and get muscles working again.
Remedial Massage is massage that targets specific problem areas of the body.
Over a period of time our bodies can take a real beating-occupational and sports related fatigue, strains and injuries can accumulate and these issues can be accentuated through poor posture, repetitive strains and neglected body maintenance.
Unfortunately in our time-poor society in which we live, we seldom invest in maintaining our most pressure asset-our body and as a result acute pain and injury can result. In some instances poor body maintenance has given rise to more serious and in some cases permanent physical impairments. There is a very strong relationship between our muscles, connective tissues and skeletal system. If one or more of these are impaired or inhibited then frequently a cascading or domino effect can be seen to take place. For instance a spasming lower back may give rise to compensation that impacts body posture and favoritism of one side of the body, this in turn may lead to joint and tendon issues and an acute pain and long term discomfort. Pain also has terrible impact on our emotional well being which in turn impact upon our relationships and personal productivity in life.
Remedial massage seeks to remedy problem areas by not only focusing on the problem site but also the surrounding and supporting muscles and tissues through the use of deep tissue massage, lymphatic drainage, tendon release, trigger point therapy, muscle release and the promotion of increased blood circulation to the effected areas.
Remedial massage can be extremely effective in freeing up locked up joints, loosening fibrotic tissue and increasing overall mobility as well as providing pain relief and a pathway to ongoing body health.
