A Remedial Massage is targeted at resolving a problem that is associated with pain or dysfunction, hence the term Remedial. This may be due to an injury, over training, bad posture or as part of an ongoing maintenance programme.
This type of therapy may also include many other techniques such as Lymphatic Drainage, Myofascial Release, Trigger Point Work, Muscle Energy Techniques, Stretching and Strengthening work.
In our assessment, treatment and management of Soft Tissue injury, Pain and Dysfunction, we utilise a scientific approach to mobilise the soft tissue structures of the body – muscles, ligaments, tendons, fascia and connective tissues – to bring about balance and harmony and to further enhance the function of those tissues.
