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 treats the body holistically, tracing the discomfort as far as possible back to the original cause, healing both the cause as well as the symptoms.
“The aim of remedial massage is to find and treat the cause of the disorder, not only the symptoms”
Muscular and skeletal dysfunctions often addressed with remedial massage include fibrositis, spondylitis, arthritis, frozen shoulder, muscular cramps, whiplash, muscular atrophy, sports and dancing injuries. Although a single massage will be enjoyable and beneficial, the effects of massage are cumulative and a course of massage treatments in conjunction with stretching, strengthening exercises and breaking bad habits (prolonged sitting at a desk, lifting incorrectly etc) will bring the most benefits.
