Benefits of Remedial Massage Therapy
An immediate benefit of massage therapy is the feeling of relaxation and space you will have in your body. Massage prompts the release of endorphins and chemicals that produce the feeling of wellbeing. Not only that, but remedial massage also lowers stress hormones that can often impair the immune system and other critical functions of your body.
Other physical benefits of massage, especially remedial massage, include:
- Reducing pain and tension in muscles
- Improving circulation
- Stimulating the lymphatic system
- Reducing stress hormones
- Deep relaxation
- Improving joint mobility and flexibility
- Improved recovery from soft tissue damage and injuries
- Lower levels of anxiety and depression
How is Remedial Massage Different to Relaxation Massage?
A relaxation massage focuses on helping you de-stress from the pressures of daily life. The massage techniques used are gentle in nature and designed to help soothe and relax your body. Long, smooth flowing strokes are characteristic of this type of massage.
What we offer is very different. Remedial massage is designed to go deep into the musculoskeletal system and bring the body back into alignment. If you’re experiencing tension, pain or injury in your body, remedial massage is a better option for your needs.
Your remedial massage therapist will assess where you need treatment and what may be causing pain. The treatments will likely involve deep tissue work for short periods of time. Many conditions can be eased with remedial massage treatments including:
- Pregnancy related aches and pain
- Chronic pain
- Carpal tunnel
- Stiff neck, shoulders or back
- Sports injuries
While both types of massage have many benefits, remedial is more suitable to promote healing and returning your body back to it’s regular function after injury or pregnancy.
Is Remedial Massage Safe During Pregnancy?
There are many benefits to receiving a massage during pregnancy. In general, it is a safe treatment though there are many precautions to take. Our therapists are specially trained to work with pregnant women and adjust their treatments accordingly.
