What is Remedial Massage?
Remedial is a diagnostic tool, the therapist will assess and locate problematic areas and will focus on bringing the body back into balance to work at its optimal best. Dependent on the client, whether you are regularly active, athlete or has a health issue, the therapist will work with you to alleviate the pain and provide better motion. Our therapist will provide you with an ongoing care plan and may refer you to other practitioners/modalities.
Why would I need it?
The bigger question is, why wouldn’t I?
Whether you are an athlete competing or a once a week runner, regular massage can help prevent injury. When you exercise you push yourself and strain the muscles which actually tear and rebuild as the muscles stretch and flex. When you receive a massage, the muscles are softened and manipulated to encourage better circulation. This brings oxygen to the muscles which aids in faster recovery after exercise, enables you to have better performance, relieves pain and reduces stress.
When would I need it?
Massage can be beneficial at any time. Receive a massage BEFORE training; receive a massage AFTER training; BEFORE a big event/performance; AFTER a big event/performance. If you have muscle tightness; an injury or feeling fatigued, a massage is therapeutic for the mind as well as the body.
