Remedial Massage

Remedial Massage

Remedial massage is a complementary therapy that focuses on treating damaged, knotted, tense or immobile muscles. It is an effective treatment option for a variety of conditions that affect the muscles, tendons and bones and can also help alleviate other health problems.

Remedial massage is a therapeutic approach that aims to identify and fix damaged areas of the body, thereby accelerating the body’s natural healing ability. The intensity of the massage pressure can vary based on the problem, ranging from strong and deep to gentle and shallow.

Remedial massage aims to locate the original source of pain and address both the cause of the problem and its symptoms, which may radiate to other parts of the body due to muscle issues.

Remedial Massage Techniques Used

Pregnancy massage is available from the second trimester onwards.  It is performed with a belly pillow to allow for comfortable lying on the stomach.

Sports massage therapy applies specialised techniques to aid in the healing of knotted, tight, weak, or damaged muscles.

Swedish (relaxation) massage uses long, soothing strokes to ease your tension and leave you feeling completely serene. Allow yourself to fully unwind as your therapist applies gentle pressure to your muscles, melting away any stress or discomfort.
