Remedial Massage is a complementary therapy that aims to treat muscles that are damaged, knotted, tense or immobile. It is useful for a number of problems that affect muscles, tendons and bones.
What is a Remedial Massage?
The Remedial Massage serves to localize and repair damaged parts of the body and to accelerate the body's own healing processes. The pressure exerted during this treatment can be either strong and deep or gentle and soft, depending on the problem.
Muscle problems can trigger pain or radiate to other parts of the body. The Remedial Massage aims to detect the underlying cause of the pain and address both the cause of the problem and the symptoms.
What does a Remedial Massage include?
Before the massage begins, your therapist will talk to you about your health and lifestyle. He will ask you to lie down on a table or couch and cover you with towels to protect your privacy and keep you warm. He will probably use creams or oils to support a smooth massage of your skin.
The therapist will use various techniques to locate and repair damaged areas of the body. These techniques penetrate deeply into the muscles associated with the problem. He might also stretch different body parts.
The health benefits of the Remedial Massage
The Remedial Massage can stimulate the blood circulation, make the joints more flexible and help to repair damaged tissues. The therapist will seek to balance the length, tone, and tension of muscles and tendons, restoring proper bone position, increasing blood flow, and healing wounds.
Relaxation and stabilization of the muscles can alleviate problems such as headache, abdominal pain, back pain and sciatic pain.
Some health problems that are often treated with Remedial Massage include sports and dance injuries, muscle spasms, whiplash, muscle atrophy, fibrositis, spondylitis, arthritis, and frozen shoulder.
