A remedial massage can be gentle or strong, deep or shallow, and holistically treats the whole body. It involves a range of techniques and styles such as deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy and sports massage. It is a systematic assessment and treatment of muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissue of the body to assist in rehabilitation, pain and injury management. Remedial massage is designed to balance muscle/soft tissue length, tension, tone which will in turn promote the return to normal joint/capsular/bone position. This increases the flow of blood and lymph, particularly in the injured areas, thus removing blockages, damaged cells, scar tissue and adhesions resulting from injury. It also encourage overall feeling of relaxation and wellness.
