Remedial massage uses several techniques to locate and repair damage, and to support and speed up the body’s own healing mechanisms. The oils used ensure that the muscles associated with the disorder of the joint are deeply penetrated.
The benefits of Remedial Massage include the stimulation to the blood supply allowing toxins in the muscles to be removed; the calming of the peripheral nervous system to ease pain and discomfort; and the toning and relaxing of muscles to improve 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 therapeutic relaxation.
