Remedial Massage

What is Remedial Massage?

Remedial massage is the systematic assessment and treatment of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body to assist in rehabilitation, pain and injury management. Remedial Massage uses various techniques to stretch and lengthen muscles and connective tissues. It helps to reduce pain and discomfort, bringing wellness and mobility to the client. When muscles and tendons become damaged or impaired, knotted and tense or immobile, Remedial Massage provides a healing treatment that can be gentle or strong, deep or shallow. Remedial massage holistically treats the whole body and traces the pain back to the original cause, healing both the cause of the pain as well as the symptoms.

What is Myotherapy?

Myotherapy is the powerful technique to put length and function back into the muscles by manipulating soft tissue using a unique combination of acupressure and massage techniques, allowing muscles to function normally. It is an effective technique for chronic pain. A Practitioner is trained to know how different muscles in the body are connected and how problems in one area can refer pain to a totally different area. Myotherapy is highly effective in the treatment of pain and injury in the body.
