The primary aim of Remedial Massage is to find and treat symptoms (usually pain) the cause of a disorder in the muscles, fascia (connective tissue), ligaments and tendons of the body.
This is done through asking questions and may include physical assessment to help identify any problems. Most treatments will start with a Therapeutic Massage to warm the muscles and allow you to become comfortable with touch.
Specific treatment techniques are used such as Trigger Point Therapy, Deep Tissue Massage, PNF and passive stretching. These techniques help correct soft tissue disorders, resulting in a decrease in pain and an increase in muscle function. You may also be given stretches and exercises to help correct postural imbalances.
Treatments can range from 30 minutes to a 60 minutes massage which will include the whole body.
