Remedial Massage is a form of deep tissue massage which is focused on regaining normal muscle and soft tissue flexibility to assist recovery from or to help prevent injury. This form of massage works by increasing blood flow to the tissues, assisting with scar tissue breakdown, and encouraging lymphatic drainage of swelling and waste products. The effect of this is to normalise soft tissue flexibility and thus improved joint mobility. Soft tissue tension affects the normal position of the joints and associated nerve tissue. Therefore it is often involved in movement imbalances, postural dysfunctions and is almost always a contributing factor in musculoskeletal pain.Remedial Massage is a valuable and non-intrusive massage therapy practice, which restores, rehabilitates and revitalises your body and mind. It involves systematically working with muscles, soft and connective tissues, scar tissue, and fascia in aid to ease the pain and discomfort of injuries, strains and dysfunctions. To allow the body’s natural healing processes to work more effectively.Remedial massage is designed to balance muscle/soft tissue length, tension, tone which will in turn promote the return to normal joint/capsular/bone position; increase the flow of blood and lymph, particularly in the injured areas, thus removing blockages, damaged cells, scar tissue and adhesion resulting from injury.
