If you sit at a desk every day using a computer or phone or if you participate in repetitive sports then this massage technique is for you. Remedial massage can help your sore muscles, ligaments, facia and tendons feel better. Remedial or therapeutic massage can also help prevent further damage to your musculoskeletal system by encouraging and maintaining the suppleness and length of muscles and tendons.
How Remedial massage works:
Massage promotes increased circulation of lymph and blood and brings about a healing effect on both the physical body and the mind. It can be therapeutic in managing and reducing pain and stress as it supports the body by promoting feelings of deep relaxation and wellness, thus optimising the body’s own capacity for healing.
With repetitive activities, whether it is sport or long hours spent using a computer or lifting heavy things, tension can build up in your muscles causing them to become tight and contracted. Your muscles then may not function properly because their ability to lengthen is reduced. Over time this can affect your posture and put stress on other muscle groups. Your joints can then become tight and pain and tension headaches begin.
Along with treating specific problems Remedial Massage has holistic benefits; it helps to alleviate stress, relax your mind and makes you feel good!
