Always feeling tight? Remedial Massage can help

Always feeling tight? Remedial Massage can help

Remedial Massage eases pain and inflammation to enable your body to heal more quickly. Remedial massage therapists work on muscles, tendons, ligaments – any connective tissue or fascia within the body – to help alleviate any stiffness, soreness or pain and improve function. 

Using their training in human anatomy and physiology, remedial massage therapists treat strains, aches and sports injuries and trace pain to its source. Pain can often radiate to other areas, and the restriction may be in the lower back or glutes, for example, but you may be feeling the pain or discomfort in the hamstrings or down through the legs to the feet. Likewise, headaches can stem from the neck and shoulders.  

Techniques can include:

  • Targeted massaging using varying levels of pressure
  • Myofascial release
  • Trigger-point therapy
  • Cupping
  • Neurolymphatic massage and more

What are the benefits of Remedial massage? 

  1. Increases range of motion

Remedial massage works to improve joint mobility and relieve tightness and contraction in the body. 

  1. Relieves pain

Remedial massage therapists locate and treat the source of pain and speed up the body’s own healing processes for immediate and ongoing relief. 

  1. Enables relaxation

When you’re in pain, your body goes into a flight or fight mode where everything is tense and tight. If the pain is alleviated, your body relaxes, and your central nervous system slows down. 

  1. Facilitates healing

Remedial massage increases blood flow and the flow of lymphatic fluid, which enables the body to heal more quickly 

  1. Improves sleep

Sleeping better is a common outcome when pain is alleviated.
