Remedial and Sports Massage Therapy
Remedial Massage is a form of deep tissue massage that assists with healing the soft tissues of the body (muscles and tendons) when damaged, tense or immobile.
Remedial Massage speeds up the body’s repair mechanisms and aids recovery of tired and fatigued muscles from sport, overuse or even everyday postural issues. It addresses muscular impairments and reduces the pain and symptoms.
You do not have to be injured or an athlete to benefit from Remedial Massage. The treatment also improves general muscular tone, promotes peripheral circulation, relieves mental fatigue and can be used to either calm or stimulate the nervous system. It is also a great way to relax and unwind at the end of the day.
