Remedial massage is a therapeutic treatment to help combat muscle tension, muscular pain and restricted movement. I treat many different types of people with remedial massage, office workers, builders, tree surgeons and hairdressers to name a few.
Typically many of my clients suffer with:
- Shoulder tension and pain
- Restricted neck movement
- Headaches and neck pain
- Lower back pain
- Hip pain
Remedial massage uses a combination of massage techniques including:
- Swedish massage techniques
- Neuromuscular techniques (trigger point therapy)
- Soft Tissue Release
- Muscle Energy Techniques
As an experienced massage therapist I can help to reduce symptoms and discuss with you what may have caused the problems to start. Often the route causes may stem from occupation or activities. You may be given stretches or exercises to do at home. Other self care strategies may also be given to help your body feel good again.
Remedial massage is a therapeutic treatment based on anatomy and muscle function. It is not to be confused with any kind of massage you’ve had in a spa type setting.
First Remedial Massage Appointment
You will need to provide a medical history so it is worth writing down any medication you are taking regularly. Consider your symptoms, when they started and what makes them worse or better. This will be useful in making a treatment plan.
I may have to assess your posture when standing to look for any issues that could be causing your symptoms.
Wear loose and comfortable clothing. Some treatment can be given through clothing. You will be treated discreetly at all times, towels are used throughout treatment to keep you covered and comfortable.
