If you’re experiencing pain, tension or had a muscular injury as a result of an accident, overuse of a muscle group, repetitive strain or you’ve recently had surgery, remedial massage can bring relief.
Remedial massage supports healing of a specific part of the body, by relieving muscular pain and re-educating muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues. It aids in faster repair and helps restore your body to the healthy level of functioning.
What to expect…
By applying pressure and manual techniques to your problem area remedial massage is stimulating circulation of blood and lymph and breaking down knots, which lead to pain relief and relaxing or releasing tight and overused muscles.
If you feel stuck or restricted, lengthening and stretching techniques to tight or tense muscles and connective tissue, as well as taking the joint through its range of motion, will improve functioning enabling you to move freely without discomfort.
How does Remedial Massage help you?
The word remedial comes from the word ‘remedy’ or healing:
It is mainly known to reduce or eliminate acute and chronic strain, pain, tension or cramps and manage musculoskeletal conditions.
Additionally, it eases discomfort by loosening stiffness and improving restricted or limited movement. It can also assist with rehabilitation of muscular injuries and painful scar tissue.
Or if you work long hours behind a computer, it will relief muscular pain related to postural, overuse or repetitive strain.
Furthermore, it could prevent further injury, helping you to maintain optimal health and an active lifestyle.
Conditions that could benefit from remedial massage:
• Pain in lower back, shoulder, neck, jaw
• Rotator Cuff injuries’, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, RSI, Epicondylitis (tennis/golfers elbow)

Reflexology is a gentle, relaxing natural holistic therapy which balances the body system and helps to regain body’s natural state – physical, mental, emotional and energetic level.
An ancient practice and has been used for a long time as Buddha in India and recorded proof has been found 1000 BC by the Chinese and on Egyptians tombs from around 2330 BC.
It is based on the principle that there are points on the feet, hands, ears and face which reflect the body’s health.
A reflexologist skillfully applies pressure on these sensory nerve endings utilizing the thumb, finger and hand techniques encouraging the clearing of impaired or blocked neural pathways and stimulates the free flow of energy.
Circulation is stimulated and healing is both initiated and accelerated in the corresponding area of the body, rebalancing organ function, glands and tissues while creating a deep sense of relaxation and calm. It initiates deep relaxation, revitalizes, providing relief, supports in repairs & restores function and rebalances the overall body system.
Reflexology is not to be confused with a foot massage as it works on generating a response over the neural pathways and energy lines or meridians, stimulating the nervous system to release tension and not through manipulation of soft tissue, as massage does. It is not the same ticklish experience like massage.
Reflexology treatments at MarisSage are a fusion of Eastern and Western reflexology implementing meridians, acupressure points and reflex areas adressing both the physical and energetic system, facilitating healing on multiple levels to restore normal function and bring harmony to body and mind.
Allow time for a change in life’s priorities with the nurturing and reflection offered by a caring and professional reflexologist.
