Remedial Massage- What is it?
Remedial Massage is a legitimate para-medical treatment that helps to restore function to injured "soft tissues" (muscles, tendons and ligaments), and promotes a sense of well-being.
Therapy may involve the use of various types of techniques such as, soft tissue manipulation, deep tissue therapy, thermal therapy, myofascial release and trigger point therapy as well as a range of other physical treatments like stretching and strengthening exercises to assist in your recovery.
In addition, you may be asked to perform some activities at home to help in the process of your recovery.
The treatment releases chronic tension and pain in muscles, increases flexibility, reduces muscle fatigue and helps manage stress. Remedial massage is a holistic treatment which addresses not only the symptoms of pain and limited range of movement but also the cause of the problem. Deep tissue massage gets results faster than other types of massage. It releases tension in the body through slow strokes and deep finger pressure. It helps restore normal movement, reduces pain and stiffness in muscles by releasing trigger points, stretching shortened muscles and encouraging improved circulation all of which hastens the "pain" recovery process. Some conditions which respond well to treatment include headaches, migraines, sciatica, sports injuries, general lower back, neck and shoulder pain.
