Aches and pains? Look at the benefits of regular Massage
Remedial Massage. What is it?
Remedial Massage is a systematic assessment, treatment & management of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body to assist in rehabilitation from injury and overuse. It is performed to create favorable conditions for the body to return to optimal health. Remedial massage is designed to balance muscle & soft tissue length, tension & tone. As a result, treatments will help promote the return to normal joint range of motion, ease muscle tone and increase the flow of blood and lymph, particularly to the injured area(s). Therefore regular massage flushes toxins while easing scar tissue and adhesion’s that are often present and the result of injury or overuse.
A remedial therapist has sound knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology to determine where and how best to treat patients, furthermore their services are based on best practice principles. Prior to remedial massage treatment, thorough patient consultation and assessments are performed to ascertain the patients current health status. Relying on patient feedback is important to identify the areas that require attention. Therefore the therapist can then apply the relevant and appropriate treatment.
