Benefits of Remedial Massage
Remedial massage promotes a feeling of deep relaxation and calm. This occurs in part because the massage prompts the release of endorphins (brain chemicals) that produce feelings of wellbeing. It also relaxes muscular tension, stimulating the flow of blood through the muscles, breaking down and eliminating toxins, enhancing oxygenation of the brain to relax the nervous system and mind. Levels of stress hormones such as Adrenalin, Cortisol and Norepinephrine, which can impair the immune system during long term stress, are also reduced with remedial massage. Remedial Massage shortens recovery time from muscular strain and exercise by pushing the tissues of metabolic wastes including lactic acid and uric acid. It improves circulation and stretches the ligaments and tendons, keeping them subtle and young.
Remedial Massage also stimulates the skin and soothes the nervous system. It reduces stress, both emotional and physical, making it an integral modality in any regular program for stress management. Remedial Massage also has special clinical advantages to assist in a medical, rehabilitation or remedial therapy program.
