Remedial massage is probably the most popular form of massage therapy in Australia and focuses on the treatment of soft tissue injuries, aching muscles and postural imbalances using a variety of techniques. These specialised techniques locate and repair damage and support and speed up the body's own repair mechanisms.
This holistic approach heals both the cause and the symptoms of the the disorder.
The stimulation to the blood supply allows toxins in the muscles to be removed; the calming of the peripheral nervous system eases pain and discomfort; and the toning and relaxing of muscles improves joint mobility. An improvement to the health of the cells, the repairing of tissues, and the easing of stiffness and tension can also be experienced through remedial massage.
