When muscles become tense or damaged a remedial massage can provide a healing treatment that can be gentle or strong, deep or shallow.
It is the techniques used that separates a remedial massage from just an average rub down. The therapist’s aim is to identify the original dysfunction, thus healing the cause of the disorder, as well as the symptoms.
The term remedial massage umbrellas several techniques and refers more to the therapist’s level of education rather then the actual technique itself.
Massage therapy of any sort supports and speeds up the body’s own repair mechanisms. Key benefits of a remedial massage include the stimulation of blood supply to the muscles which will allow dormant toxins to be remove, it will also calm the nervous system, improve joint mobility, and increase the health of the soft tissue throughout the body.
Massage is the best treatment of ailments such as frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, whiplash, neck and back pain, scoliosis, headaches and most sports injuries.
