Some of the key benefits of Remedial Massage include the stimulation and enhanced circulation of blood throughout the body, which allows toxins in the muscles to be flushed out, the relaxing of the peripheral nervous system to ease discomfort and pain and the relaxing and toning of the muscles which improves joint function and mobility.
Skeletal and muscular functions that are addressed with Remedial Massage include muscle pain and tightness, back and neck pain, arthritis, scoliosis, whiplash, sports injuries, headaches and tennis elbow.
Shiatsu is a form of bodywork that is based on Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), and is designed to maintain and promote the body’s natural balance.

This enables enhanced circulation and supports the body’s natural energy flow, both contribute to the overall healing of the body.
