Remedial massage is assessment and treatment of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body to assist in rehabilitation, pain and injury management. It’s performed to create favourable conditions for the body to return to normal health after injury and is defined by the premise that the treatment can reasonably reverse certain physical effects a patient may be presenting. If a patient has suffered a moderate injury resulting in structural pain and/or loss of function, then remediation is required to reduce or eliminate pain and restore that function. Remedial massage is designed to balance muscle/soft tissue length, tension, tone which will in turn promote the return to normal joint/capsular/bone position; increase the flow of blood and lymph, particularly in the injured areas, thus removing blockages, damaged cells, scar tissue and adhesions resulting from injury.
Essential, Remedial Massage is a combination of some or all of , Deep Tissue, Relaxation, Trigger Point work in order to restore good health to your muscles and tissue based on your individual needs.
Deep tissue massage
therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but the deeper pressure is beneficial in releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints)
I often use Deep Tissue Massage in my treatments but I always cater for the individual client. I have found this to be one of the most effective techniques at eliminating pain.
I provide a firm massage and specialise particularly in Deep Tissue Massage and Trigger Point Therapy – but I always adjust the pressure to your tolerance levels.Tags: injury, pain, rehabilitation, tendons, treatment
