Remedial massage is a deep tissue massage that helps to create the conditions necessary for the body’s return to optimal health after injury. It is used to treat strains, sprains, recovering broken bones, bruising and any injury where the skin is intact.
Remedial Massage has particular success with long-standing back and compound injuries that have resisted previous treatment attempts. Once a serious injury is properly healed, further treatment is only needed if another injury is sustained. Sportsmen and women attend regularly to ensure that unnoticeably small injuries are treated before they reduce performance and become debilitating.
Recurrent injuries are injuries that have never been effectively treated. It is an unusual form of massage in that it does not set out to relax the patient, the intention is more to fix a mechanical problem. However all-round health improvement is seen: better sleep, increase in vitality and performance levels, as well as increased mobility.
Deep tissue massage removes blockages, damaged cells, scar tissue and adhesions left after injury, speeds up the recovery process and encourages more complete healing.
Some common conditions that can be successfully treated are:
- Achilles Injuries
- Shin Splints
- Groin Strain
- Cartilage damage
- Tennis Elbow
- Frozen Shoulder
- Hamstring Injuries
- Scar tissue
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Repetitive Strain Injury
Please contact me to see how I can help you. I am happy to discuss and offer any advice on whether you should seek massage or another more appropriate treatment. It is better to do something than leave it. I am a great believer in the fact that the body is not designed to be in pain, it does not like it and we suffer on many levels whilst we are in continued pain.
