Remedial massage involves the assessment and treatment of muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body, in order to aid rehabilitation, pain and injury management. The goal is to restore normal health and function by treating the symptoms and causes of biomechanical dysfunction or injury, using specific mobilisation techniques.
Deep tissue massage removes blockages, damaged cells, scar tissue and adhesions left after injury, thereby speeding up recovery and encouraging more complete healing. It is used to treat chronic musculo-skeletal imbalances, strains, sprains, broken bones, bruising or any injury where the skin is intact.
Some common conditions that can be successfully treated include:
Scar tissue and adhesions
Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
Repetitive Strain Injury.
The benefits of remedial massage are multiple, including promoting a deep feeling of relaxation through the release of endorphins (the brain chemicals that produce feelings of wellbeing), and the reduction of stress hormones (such as adrenaline, cortisol and norepinephrine). Studies show that high levels of stress hormones impair the immune system.
Other benefits include:
· reduced muscle tension
· increased joint mobility and flexibility
· improved skin tone
· improved recovery of soft tissue injuries
· improved circulation
· stimulation of the lymphatic system
· reduction of stress hormones
· heightened mental alertness
· reduced anxiety and depression.
