Remedial Sports Massage techniques are used to treat muscular dysfunction, which can often be due to tightness, shortening or overstretched and torn muscles. The term “Sports Massage” is often used, but is a bit misleading as the treatment is not just for sports people. The fact is we all suffer from aches, pains and injuries that can be effectively treated with remedial massage. Just because you happened to be running when injuring a muscle makes it no different to injuries caused by gardening or long-term pain/stiffness caused by poor posture at your desk or carrying a rucksack over one shoulder or an heavy laptop bag, every day. Ideally remedial massage should be used as a preventative form of treatment removing pain and dysfunction, creating balance, relieving stress and generally promoting a sense of deep relaxation and well-being. However, if you have an injury remedial massage works extremely well in the treatment of a wide variety of muscle and skeletal conditions i.e. back and lower back pain/tension, neck and shoulder pain, muscle sprains, repetitive strain injuries, whiplash, sciatica, frozen shoulder, tension type headaches and migraines.
Remedial massage can help prevent illness and injury in the following ways:
- Calming the central nervous system
- Promoting relaxation
- Relieving stress and tension
- Improving blood and lymphatic circulation
- Boosting immunity
- Increasing joint flexibility
- Revitalising your skin
- Removing the toxins that cause pain and stiffness
- Stimulating the release of endorphins (the body’s natural, feel-good and healing hormone).
Our remedial treatments are individually tailored to you – there is no one size fits all. On your first consultation, we will assess your posture and range of motion as well as discuss your lifestyle. This helps us build a full picture to assess the problem and treat you using the most relevant remedial massage techniques.
