Benefits of remedial massage therapy
Remedial massage therapy uses hands on, manual therapy and massage to help relieve aches and pains in your muscles and painful joints. It targets tight, knotted and painful muscles to help provide pain relief and relaxation.
Remedial massage can help with issues such as:
- Improve blood flow
- Release tight and overworked muscle
- Reduce stress
- Decrease swelling and fluid build-up
- Pain relief and relaxation
Is remedial massage different from a massage parlours?Our remedial massage therapists are extensively trained and have advanced knowledge of the human body. They also regularly undergo further training and learning to help hone and improve their techniques. Rather than simply “hard” or “soft” pressure, our therapists will be able to discern what treatment options are suitable for you and provide you with some helpful stretches and exercises to manage your pain or injury.
Some of our therapists are also trained with alternative medicine techniques such as dry needling and cupping.
Dry needling uses small, thin needles to target very specific areas around the body.
This can have numerous benefits to the body that include:
- Pain relief
- Improved blood flow
- Muscle tension relief
- Increases range of movement
- Improved muscle activity
