Remedial Massage provides a healing treatment that affects the whole body.
our therapists aim to trace the discomfort as far back as possible to the original cause thus healing both the cause of the disorder as well as the symptoms.
The key benefits of Remedial Massage include:
- Stimulation to the blood supply allowing toxins in the muscles to be removed.
- Calming of the peripheral nervous system to ease pain and discomfort.
the toning and relaxing of muscles to improve joint mobility.
- Improvement to the health of the cells, the repairing of tissues, and the easing of stiffness and tension.
A Remedial massage usually takes up to 40 minutes to 2 hours, depending on whether you would like the practitioner to treat a specific area or give a whole body massage. The massage is applied directly to the skin using oil, which deeply penetrates the muscles and joints associated with the pain. Remedial Massage Technique uses several specialised skills to locate and repair damaged tissues as well as to support and speed up the body’s own repair mechanisms.
