Remedial Massage

Remedial massage is the systematic assessment and treatment of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body to assist in rehabilitation, pain and injury management. Remedial massage therapists employ soft tissue manipulation and massage and at times other modalities where necessary such as cupping, and passive muscle stretching. This encourages healing of the soft tissue and flushes away toxins, improving blood and oxygen circulation.

Remedial Massage is used for the treatment of the following conditions
  • Muscle Tension or Spasm
  • Sciatica
  • Posture problems / Sclerosis
  • Repetitive strain injury Limited mobility
  • Chronic pain
  • Lower back pain
  • Anxiety and Stress
  • Shin Splints
  • Tennis Elbows
  • Headaches
  • Neck and Shoulder strains

Sports Massage

Sports massage is of benefit to anyone that exercises- even if only mild exercise like regular walking or undertakes repetitive actions as in work or home related activities.

It’s invaluable to athletes who need pre and post event work – either relaxing or invigorating the muscles in preparation for a competition, and then afterwards flushing them out – helping the sore muscles detoxify, realign and heal in preparation for the next bout of action.

For those who don’t play sports but perhaps work in an office environment, sitting in the same position for long periods, or carrying out repetitive tasks, sports massage is ideal. It is extremely effective for loosening tight muscles and refreshing aching limbs. It increases flexibility and range of movement, resulting in a faster healing process.

Sports massage can help:

  • healing shin splints, tennis elbow, sprains and strains, and corked thighs.
  • tendinitis- over use syndrome
  • draining away fatigue
  • relieving swelling
  • reducing muscle tension
  • promoting flexibility
  • relieving pain
  • preventing injuries
  • improving heart rate and blood pressure
  • increasing blood circulation and lymph flow
