Remedial massage, or soft-tissue manipulation, is designed to treat muscles, ligaments, tendons and connective tissues. The massage movements use various techniques (including kneading, friction and stretching) with different degrees of pressure to relax or stimulate tissues.
What happens during Remedial Massage?
Only the particular part of your body to be worked on will be exposed. The therapist will work using oil to a depth of pressure you find acceptable. The length of treatment varies according to how much of the body is to be worked on. This may be a full body massage, back massage, neck and shoulders, etc.
Who is it for?
Remedial massage can help people with tight muscles or stiff joints – perhaps from sports injuries or accidents, or simply from stress. This type of massage can be beneficial to mobilise limbs after inactivity, during pregnancy and as a support to other manipulative therapies.
