Remedial Massage

Remedial Massage is an advanced form of massage given by a therapist who has a broader understanding of anatomy and physiology.
This type of treatment is designed for people who are

  • recovering from sports injuries
  • seeking injury prevention
  • suffering from deep-seated muscular tension
  • and clients who are seeking specific results.

Remedial Massage therapy is also widely used to treat a large variety of conditions including chronic back pain, acute pain, headaches & postural strains associated with the repetitive actions of working with computers or other equipment.

Techniques used are Deep Tissue, Trigger Point therapy, Myofascial Release, Positional Release and Mobilisation.

  • This type of massage targets muscles specifically to return them to their normal resting position and range of movement. Ensuring the body is being used at its optimal level, free of the pain caused by day-to day activities, and aiming to prevent further injury.
  • Remedial Massage has a strong supportive role in maintaining good health. Clinical studies for chronic conditions have shown that repeat consultation & prescribed exercises are effective in significantly speeding up recovery and providing symptomatic pain relief without the use of drugs.
