Remedial massage holistically treats the whole body and traces the discomfort as far as possible back to the original cause, healing both the cause of the disorder as well as the symptoms.
It uses several specialized techniques to locate and repair soft tissues and to support and speed up the body's own repair mechanisms. It creates length and space in your muscle tissues by applying the right amount of pressure for your body to release areas of interconnecting tension.
During a treatment you often discover places that you didn’t realize were tight / sore and notice how that shifts and reduces throughout the session. Afterwards, you feel very different; the sensation is either lightness, re-energised, connected and grounded, or you may be in a sleepy state of relaxation, either way you feel able to move more freely as we have taken away places of tension that required altered muscle recruitment patterns.
Key benefits of Remedial Massage include: the stimulation to the blood supply allowing toxins in the muscles to be removed; the calming of the peripheral nervous system to ease pain and discomfort; and the toning and relaxing of muscles to improve joint mobility. An improvement to the health of the cells, the repairing of tissues, and the easing of stiffness and tension can also be experienced through therapeutic relaxation.
