  • Remedial massage is usually combined with physiotherapy but is also a separate therapy that treats many conditions. It can ease back pain, help you relax, improve your circulation, release the tension in sore and stiff muscles, and even aid in the repair of soft tissue damage.

    Remedial massage is great for improving muscle function and movement because it breaks down the fibrous knots and adhesions that occur from injury or overuse of muscles. Physiotherapy treatment can include other types of massage as well, such as sports massage, trigger point therapy, relaxation massage and lymphatic drainage. Our therapists will determine which therapy suits your needs best.

    Like the name suggests, your soft tissue and muscles in your limbs and/or spine are massaged, using pressure that is as firm or gentle as required. Your tissues and muscles are stretched and loosened, which improves your circulation and helps drain lymph fluid and other waste by-products from exercising. Massage therapy also helps stimulate the circulation of endorphins in your body, for natural muscle relaxation and pain management.

  • There are many ailments and conditions that benefit from massage therapy, including:

    • Back, neck and jaw pain
    • Frozen shoulder
    • Sciatica
    • Tension headaches
    • Tennis elbow
    • Muscle spasms and cramps
    • Arthritis
  • Massage therapy doesn’t just relieve pain; it’s also a great way to improve your mood by reducing your anxiety and stress and help with sleep quality.

    Research has also shown that there could be a link between improved immune system function as well. The enhanced lymphocyte production from massage results in lower cortisol levels, while white blood cells increase.

    Massage therapy is not only relaxing, but it’s also stress-relieving and improves the symptoms of anxiety and depression. It decreases blood pressure and heart rate, while mood, sleep, learning and other bodily functions are improved thanks to the boost of serotonin.

    People of any age can reap the benefits of massage therapy, and it has even been used to help relieve the discomfort and pain associated with chronic conditions and illnesses such as cancer. It’s a great alternative for those who wish to try and cut back on medication for pain killers and try a more physical approach to pain relief.
