What is Remedial Massage Therapy & what can it treat?
Remedial Massage is a holistic treatment of the body which traces the discomfort as far as possible back to the original cause, healing both the cause of the disorder as well as the symptoms. Remedial massage focuses on the treatment of soft tissue injuries, aching muscles and postural imbalances using a variety of diagnostic techniques. When overworked muscles become tight, knotted or damaged, remedial massage can provide a healing treatment that can be gentle or strong, deep or shallow.
Remedial massage can be helpful in treating specific areas of muscle tension caused by stress or injury. The therapy also helps to get the blood flowing to injured tissues to speed up the repair process. Some of the more common causes of chronic pain where Remedial Massage can be of help are Tension Headaches, Stress, Repetitive strain injuries, Muscle sprains and strains, Bad Posture, Sporting injuries, and accidental injuries.
How can having a Remedial Massage help & what is involved?
The aim of massage is to locate and release the aches and pains caused by the build up of tension in the body. Massage of these tense areas helps speed up the body's own repair mechanisms to create homeostasis.
Surapa uses deep slow strokes either following or going across the muscle fibres, tendons and fascia. This technique also helps to break up and eliminate scar tissue. Other treatments may include Pressure Massage, Trigger Point Therapy, Cupping and stretching exercises.
