Tailored Massage Treatments to suit your health, goals or injury
Remedial massage is a holistic treatment involving the use of many styles of massage and a wide range of diagnostic techniques to treat a condition. Treatments can be gentle or strong, deep or shallow. It is not meant to be painful and can be very nurturing. However, the overall goal is not necessarily relaxation, but to help treat muscular restrictions and alleviate pain.
Remedial Massage therapy is the process of physical manipulation of the body’s soft tissues for improving circulation and reducing tension, which in turn leads to a greater healing ability, fewer aches and pains and a general sense of health and well-being. Massage stretches and mobilizes the muscles, ligaments and tendons improving mobility.
