Remedial Massage is used for both muscular and skeletal problems as well as benefiting the circulatory and respiratory systems. It also aids the body’s healing and repair processes, restoring structural balance and preventing a recurrence of the problem.

Allowing the body to reinforce healthy and natural movements can be one of the most beneficial aspects of massage therapy. Many aches and pains are due to poor posture. Whether we are driving, working at a desk, or even just standing still, poor posture can contribute to a number of physical aches and pains. Over time, these habits can cause increased body stress and breakdown.

Does It Hurt?
Some massage techniques used on injured, tight or painful tissue, can cause some discomfort, but if the therapist adjusts their pressure according to your individual pain threshold, the level discomfort will be tolerable that you can feel it relieving your tension. Always communicate with your therapist before and during the massage of how much pressure you can tolerate so that it can be adjusted to suit you. A massage does not need to be extremely painful to be effective, so it is never necessary to let a therapist work deeper than you are comfortable with.
Will I get results straight away?
This varies with each individual and depends on your daily lifestyle and the condition of your health on arrival, but as a rule you should feel the greatest effects for at least a few days, but then continue to feel relaxed and revived for weeks, and even longer if your muscles were not extremely tight to begin with. Long term or acute pain or tension, however, may require more intense and regular treatment before you will feel complete relief. Your massage will last longer if you look after yourself at home by stretching regularly, maintaining good posture, and avoiding activities that aggravate your condition eg. computer work for long periods, carrying heavy shopping bags, etc.
