Designed to treat superficial and deep tissues of the body by incorporating different techniques such as:
- Swedish Massage – combines various hands-on techniques including gliding, kneading, and cross-fibre friction to break up muscle knots, called adhesions. Swedish massage is based on the Western concepts of anatomy and physiology and it can be slow and gentle, or vigorous and bracing, depending on what the therapist wants to achieve. Concentrating on the superficial tissues using long strokes it encourages blood flow towards the heart.
- Trigger Point Therapy – trigger points are small areas on the body usually found where nerves and muscles connect with one another. Pressure on these points relieves the tension. It is used in conjunction with other methods and is great for managing chronic pain, headaches and injuries.
The Remedial Massage session will usually start with a postural assessment, which is quite thorough. Afterwards, the treatment will work to restore balance to the posture by applying a scientific method of working the muscles. Remedial massage is responsible for releasing endorphins in to the body, relieving muscle tension and flushing the body of metabolic waste (ie: lactic acid).
