About Remedial Massage:

Remedial massage is deep tissue massage (deeper then Swedish) that is done to return the body back to normal health/function. It can also help to decrease scar tissue and adhesions within the muscle/tendons and ligaments. The sole purpose of remedial massage is not to relax, it also intends to repair mechanical problems the body may be experiencing. Some conditions that remedial massage can help with are:

  • Tendon/ligament injuries
  • Cartilage damage
  • Plantar fasciitis
  • Hamstring/groin injuries
  • Frozen shoulder/tennis elbow

Remedial massage also addresses a broad spectrum of health conditions and has been proven beneficial in assisting fatigue, sleep disorders, high blood pressure, diabetes, back pain, immunity suppression, spinal cord injury, post-operative surgery, infertility, smoking cessation, and depression, to name just a few.

Generally, massage has many physiological and psychological benefits, such as:

  • Increasing circulation thus bringing more oxygen and nutrients to tissues and vital organs and increasing the body’s ability to heal.
  • Reducing spasms and cramping.
  • Increasing joint flexibility.
  • Reducing recovery time for strenuous workouts and eliminating subsequent pains of the athlete at any level.
  • Releasing endorphins, the body’s natural painkiller.
  • Improving range of motion and decreasing discomfort for people recovering from injury or back pain.
  • Relieving pain for migraine or headache sufferers and decreasing the need for medication.
  • Providing exercise and stretching for atrophied muscles and reducing shortening of the muscles for those with restricted range of motion.
  • Reducing stress levels.
  • Restoring a feeling of overall well being.
  • Improving sleep and helping to combat sleep or nervous disorders.
  • Relaxing and softening injured and overused muscles.
  • Stimulating the lymph system, the body’s natural defense, against toxic invaders.
