About Remedial Massage

Remedial Massage is a common treatment used to alleviate chronic muscle pain and tension. Sometimes referred to as deep tissue massage, it is a method of manipulating the soft tissues of the body. It also includes the assessment and treatment of muscles, ligaments, and tendons, thereby helping with rehabilitation, pain management, and injury recovery. Our Remedial masseur will use various techniques (including lubricants and movement) to aid healing and restore you back to health.

In addition to relieving pain and increasing joint mobility, remedial massage improves circulation and gives you a tremendous feeling of relaxation (not just physically, but mentally too). It is ideal for people with tiring and demanding lifestyles. Stress levels are also greatly reduced, providing a feeling of well-being.

Benefits of Remedial Massage

Those who are treated with remedial massage will tell you that they experience a profound feeling of relaxation, which is an immediate benefit. This happens because the deep tissue pressure prompts the release of endorphins, which are brain chemicals that give us a feeling of calm. It also relieves stress, as it reduces cortisol, adrenalin, and norepinephrine (the stress hormones), which are known to weaken the immune system.

The benefits are huge. Not only does remedial massage assist in improving circulation, reduce stress, and relieve muscular aches and injuries, it also encourages well-being. Additionally, it can reduce blood pressure. This is why it is a popular choice for post-operative recovery.
