What is remedial massage?
This treatment focuses on your physiological needs whilst incorporating restorative techniques. We will have a thorough consultation where we assess your history, current experience and goals before focusing our work on bringing relief to areas which feel painful, sore or aching. This treatment aims to ease, sooth and revive. We will think about how our movement, activities and lifestyle can affect our pain.
What can remedial massage be used for?
Those with niggling aches, injuries, discomfort, persistent pain, or perceptions of tension. All of us experience things like this at some point in our lives, if we feel we are struggling it’s really important to reach out for support & help with managing how to feel better.
What are the benefits of remedial massage?
These sessions are aimed at helping people understand the healing process of the body, what pain is physiologically (pain neuroscience education or PNE), and how it can be better managed. You will be able to concentrate the massage on areas that feel most in need of relief and have the chance to provide them with some much needed pleasant sensation.
In practice, all my treatments are a combination of remedial and relaxation massage. We all have aches & pains, we all have times in life where we feel the need to draw ourselves in, to give ourselves some space, and be comforted. You decide what you need based on how you are feeling and how you would like to feel.
