Remedial massage is a deep tissue style massage, that is therapeutic in nature. It is designed to heal specific health issues, muscle problems and injuries.
Remedial massage therapists believe that everything in your body is connected and related. If one part is injured it will in turn affect the rest of your body
If you have an injured knee, you may then favour the other leg which will throw out the muscles in the hip and lead to your back aching.
The tightening of these muscles may then cause an imbalance affecting your neck muscles which may then give you a headache.
So if you go to see a remedial therapist and you complain of persistent headaches, the main cause of this might be a knee injury.
Before your treatment the therapist will consult with you. Sometimes this will include stretches or tests to see your range of movement. It may include looking at your posture or palpitating the muscles to see how they move. They will talk to you generally about how your body feels and moves.
Our remedial therapists will not only diagnose what is causing the problem but will treat it with various remedial techniques.
