Remedial Massage is commonly used for preventing or healing, overused or injured muscular and joint conditions. It benefits those with specific pain, flexibility, or postural problems - for example lumbago, sciatica, carpal tunnel syndrome, over-arched backs, whiplash, and frozen shoulder. It is often the most beneficial complimentary therapy for clients alongside physiotherapy, chiropractice or osteopathy or other professional recovery treatments. TENS and Electro Muscular Stimulation may be used as part of this treatment (at no extra charge).
Remedial massage is often deeper to reach fibrous adhesions or scar tissue. Often a treatment is localised to just one particular muscle group. Postural analysis, muscle strengthening and stretching, and joint mobilisation exercises are also used during treatment. Client feedback on pain levels during treatment is essential. Aftercare advice on stretching, strengthening, or postural changes at home should also be followed to help prevent re-occurence of the muscular imbalance. Follow up treatments may be required.
The appropriate treatment time will depend on the range of techniques used, and the areas of the body to be treated.
Session time includes consultation, treatment, aftercare and any use of shower/washroom. Please note an extra (free) 20 minutes may be required for your first treatment's consultation. Membership and Treatment Course Prepurchases can save you money.
