Remedial Massage

Remedial Massage uses a range of massage and advanced soft tissue techniques to ‘remedy’ muscular conditions of pain and dysfunction.

These treatments aid the body’s return to normal health after injury or muscular-skeletal disorders. It is used to treat chronic muscular-skeletal imbalances, strains, sprains, bruising or any injury where the skin is intact.

Conditions such as sciatica, carpal tunnel, stiff necks, headaches, sports injuries and many more can be eased and addressed with remedial treatment.

Remedial massage is also used for conditions created by our existing lifestyles, for example:

  • Repetitive Strain Injury
  • Back & Shoulder Pain / Discomfort

The increased stimulation promoted by massage, and its positive effect on the circulatory system, is of particular benefit to injured areas.

Deep Tissue Massage

Where a client suffers from chronic muscle tension caused by an existing or old injury, it is like that ‘scar tissue & adhesions’ have formed in the soft tissue.

Scar tissue / adhesions can limit mobility and inhibit efficient functionality, by decreasing circulation, causing additional muscular tension & inflammation; these are often the root cause of most muscular pain.

Neck, upper & lower back, shoulders and legs are all areas of the body prone to chronic muscle tension, however they can all be relieved by the use of a ‘Deep Tissue Massage’ techniques.

These therapies, break-down adhesions and scar tissue present in the muscles, re-align muscle fibres and promote the blood circulation, thereby relieving pain and actively contributing to recovery.

The techniques used in ‘Deep Tissue Massage’ therapy concentrate on these painful regions, focusing into the muscles with slow, controlled, firm movements.

Kinesiology Taping

Kinesiology taping is a rehabilitation taping technique that promotes the body’s natural healing processes following injury or trauma.

Any injury will lead to an inflammatory response; whilst we need this process as the first stage of recovery, the pain, swelling, redness and heat can cause us discomfort.

Correct application of kinesiology Tape can reduce pain and facilitate lymphatic drainage by microscopically lifting the skin.

Kinesiology tape can also be applied to support and stabilize the body’s soft tissue and joints without restricting the body’s range of motion.
