Remedial massage focuses on treating injuries, muscular aches and pains, and postural imbalances. When muscles and tendons become damaged or impaired, knotted and tense or immobile, remedial massage provides a healing treatment that can be gentle or strong; deep or shallow. Remedial massage holistically treats the whole body and traces discomfort as far as possible back to the original cause, healing both the cause of the disorder as well as the symptoms.
If you’re suffering from a soft tissue injury or have a recurring problem, remedial massage could help. Remedial massage is a deep tissue massage which creates the correct conditions to allow the body to heal itself. Strains and sprains (muscle and ligament injury) are the most common injuries which a Remedial Therapist will see. It’s not just for injuries though – the sore feeling the day (or two days) after you’ve over exerted yourself can be helped, or prevented, by remedial massage.
