Deep Tissue MassageWhat is remedial Massage?

Do you often feel stressed? Do you suffer from aches and pains or constant niggling headaches? Do the demands of everyday life affect your physical and mental health? Well, you are not alone. In our fast-paced modern world where stress is high, work hours are long and we are increasingly time poor, the need to maintain our mental health and well-being has never been more important.

Remedial massage is used to locate and repair damaged areas of the body and speed up the body's own healing processes. The pressure applied in remedial massage can either be strong and deep or gentle and shallow, depending on the problem. Remedial massage therapists will probably use oils or creams to help them massage your skin smoothly.

Deep Tissue MassageBenefits of remedial Massage

1. Reduces stress
Remedial massage has been found to reduce both physical and emotional stress by affecting neurohormones that regulate behaviour and emotions including elevating endorphins (the bodies ‘feel-good’ hormones) and decreasing cortisol levels (a hormone the body releases in response to stress and pain). This produces a number of mood-enhancing benefits and can have positive flow-on effects such as reducing depression and anxiety, improving sleep and concentration, and boosting energy levels.

2. Boosts immunity
Remedial massage has been found to stimulate natural killer cells (which fight off invading cells), improve lymphatic drainage (which assists the body’s detoxification as part of general health maintenance), boost lymphocytes (the white blood cells which help defend our bodies from disease) and lower levels of cytokines (the molecules that play a role in inflammation). This boosts the effectiveness of the body’s immune system, helping it to fight off disease.

3. Corrects postural issues
Many of us spend a large part of our day sitting, which leads to postural stress that tends to manifest in our neck, shoulders and lower back. By assessing and monitoring individual clients, remedial massage therapists can design customised treatment plans that address such postural issues. Using techniques that lengthen and stretch the muscles and relieve tension, remedial massage therapists help to balance and realign the body, improving our posture and counteracting the negative effects of sitting for prolonged periods.

4. Increases joint mobility and flexibility
Many people suffering from acute and chronic conditions and physical disabilities such as back and shoulder pain, arthritis, cerebral palsy, sciatica and general muscle overuse experience stiffness, discomfort, reduced flexibility and movement difficulties. This reduced range of movement is often caused by muscle tension around the joints. Remedial massage therapists can use a number of stretching and mobilisation techniques that help improve circulation, loosen muscles and ease tension. This not only helps reduce pain and stiffness but also increases joint strength, stability, mobility and flexibility.

5. Improves sleep and concentration
The quality and quantity of our sleep are vital for healthy functioning. However, most of us do not get enough sleep or experience sleep issues such as insomnia, which has detrimental effects on our physical and mental health. This can include us experiencing problems with concentration and decision-making, fatigue, slowed reaction times and irritability. By relaxing the body, reducing muscle tension, improving circulation and reducing stress, remedial massage can effectively and naturally promote a good night’s sleep, helping to increase mental clarity and alertness.
