Remedial massage is an assessment and treatment of muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissue in the body to greatly aid in rehabilitation, increased mobility, pain and injury management as well as rapid healing.
We’re all living such hectic and often stressful lives that our muscles and ligaments become tight and sore, knotted or damaged. If you’re daily life is stressful during your sleep time you can cause yourself tense muscles and even mis alignments, particularly in the lower back and neck.
Remedial massage goes beyond a relaxation to focuses on trigger points holding the stress, tension and blockages in place. Deep tissue release techniques are use as well as muscle compression, muscle lubricating, passive stretching and stroking to relieve muscle tension. Greater mobility of movement, release from pain and tension are the result.
Remedial massage can also be used to treat numerous muscles, tendons, ligament problems, such as the common tight shoulder, lower back pain, and neck aches. But did you you know remedial massage is also good for headache sufferers, arthritis, tennis elbow, scoliosis, muscular sprains, spine misalignment, and body fatigue syndromes.
Other benefits of remedial massage include:
- Improving blood circulation and lymphatic drainage that remove toxins and waste;
- Toning and relaxing muscles to increase joint flexibility;
- Relieving muscular stiffness and tension and improving muscle health and function by freeing muscle fibre adhesions;
- Separating fascia binding and tethering for increasing body comfort;
- Calming the peripheral nervous system to ease pain and discomfort;
- Improving the health of cells and repairing tissues.
Regular Remedial Massage Improves Your Wellbeing & Lifestyle
First, massage treatment in general relieves stress, anxiety and fatigue caused by our modern high speed lifestyles. The president of the Australian Association of Massage Therapists (AAMT), Geoff Waldron has said, “There are a rising number of people coming to be treated because of neck and shoulder problems incurred from sitting at a desk all day.” Sitting in front of a computer all day long isn’t the only stress of modern living.
One massage therapy session is great for releaving the surface tension, but the more sessions you have the deeper the therapist can go into any given issue as well as long standing body stress. Think of it like getting fit. One fitness session with a personal trainer won’t get you the result you are looking for. But as you continue to have consistent sessions you get better and better results. Remedial Massage Therapy is no different.
