Remedial Massage Therapy focuses on particular areas of muscle tension and chronic pain and aims to relieve this with deep tissue work. Isolated pressure is used to loosen the muscle easing the area of discomfort. It is a treatment that goes straight to the source of the problem and heals both the cause and the symptoms. Through special techniques such as Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial Release, Dry Needling and Cupping. These therapies will de-activate trigger points, and fascia and releasing the muscle. The intense pressure felt will be followed by a reduction in tension and pain. This technique is very effective on chronic injuries and soft tissue pain. Remedial massage therapy stimulates the body’s own healing mechanism to bring about healing.
Remedial massage calms the muscles to ease pain and discomfort and tones and relaxes the muscles to improve joint mobility. It improves our body’s cells in the repairing of tissues and eases stiffness and tensions.
Ideal for those who suffer from problems such as back and neck pain, sciatica, carpel tunnel, migraines, referred pain, overuse injuries, joint injuries, tension headaches or poor posture from spending hours sitting in one position every day e.g. desk based jobs.
