Massage enhances and stimulates the flow of blood and lymph through the body. This increases the speed of the exchange of oxygen and carbon dioxide, resulting in metabolic improvements. This in turn results in a reduction of muscle tension and increases range of movement. Massage can cause you to become more aware of the places in your body where you 'hold' stress, as well as where the aches and pains originate from – the bonus being that Massage feels great too!
If your need is a Therapeutic Massage, then Remedial is for you. The aim of Remedial Massage is to help the body to heal following a strain, injury, or restriction.
