WHAT IS Remedial Massage?

Remedial Massage is used for both muscular and skeletal problems as well as benefiting the circulatory and respiratory systems.

It also aids the body’s healing and repair processes, restoring structural balance and preventing a recurrence of the problem.

Not only can Remedial Massage help to heal an injury, but it is also extremely useful in preventing the injury from occurring in the first place.

This is done by using specialised massage techniques to manipulate the soft tissues of the body.

Remedial Massage can help with an enormous range of complaints and conditions, helping to prevent intrusive surgery and long term medication.

Also, in a general sense, the processes of massage are seen to relieve stress and tension and so contribute towards a better quality of life.

 Reducing stress and tension can also promote a better quality of sleep as good sleep is hugely important in the healing process.

A typical treatment will consist of a consultation and examination from which I can determine the origin and extent of your injury or problem.

 From there, the massage session usually takes around 45 minutes depending on the nature

 of the problem and how much treatment your body is comfortable handling at one time.

This will usually be followed by a series or movements or manipulations to help stretch your muscles and return them to full health.

 We may also discuss simple changes you could make to improve your diet, sleep and posture, as well as activities to try help you get better,

 and prevent any further problems in the future. In some cases, this can reduce recovery time substantially.

There are many many things that Remedial and Sports massage can treat and each person will likely have a different recovery time.

 When you first come in for treatment we will discuss the likely time span of your treatment plan and continually re-evaluate as the treatment progresses.

Importantly, your recovery time can be reduced by following simple lifestyle advice and by us working together to provide

 your body with the best environment for recovery outside of the treatment room.

 This is an extremely important part of the process as the treatment it self provides the basis for recovery,

however the recovery itself will occur between appointments.
