Remedial massage supports healing of a specific part of the body, by relieving muscular pain and re-educating muscles, tendons, ligaments, and connective tissues.
Additionally, it prevents further injury and assists to restore and maintain your body to an optimal level of functioning.
How does Remedial Massage help you?
Poor posture, overused and tight muscles can be the cause of a lot of pain and discomfort in the body, causing neck, shoulder, and lower back pain, Sciatica, or tension headaches. They can pull the joints out of alignment restricting movement, press on nerves causing tingling and numbness and put tendons under tension. Remedial Massage can reduce or eliminate acute and chronic strain, pain, tension or cramps by targeting the specific area as well as address the cause.
Remedial Massage is also a great management tool for chronic conditions such as scoliosis, osteoarthritis, asthma or fibromyalgia to alleviate aches and pains and ease discomfort by loosening stiffness and improving restricted or limited movement, which often increases energy levels. Drug-free!
Moreover, it aids in faster repair and assists with the rehabilitation of muscular or repetitive strain injuries such as Rotator Cuff injuries’, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, RSI, Epicondylitis (tennis/golfers elbow), and painful scar tissue post surgery.

What to expect
By applying pressure and manual techniques and trigger points 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 passive stretching techniques or tapotement to tight or tense muscles and connective tissue, as well as gentle mobilisation of the joint through its range of motion, will improve functioning enabling you to move freely without discomfort.
Myth buster: Remedial massage doesn’t have to hard and hurt badly to be effective. It is important to respect the body and treat it in a safe way.
Yet, it isn’t uncommon to get sore after a massage like you would after a workout, but that should not last more than 2-3 days, feeling so much better!
If you experience pain, tension or have 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 be a natural ‘remedy’ for healing.
Our goal is to help you achieve yours. Put yourself in good hands.
