Why Remedial Massage Is Good For You
Remedial Massage Helps To Control Pain
Whether you've suffered an injury or you just have tight muscles, muscular pain can trigger pain to other parts of the body. Remedial massage traces the your issues back to their original source, and helps relieve your symptoms by treating the underlying problems.
It Increases Joint Flexibility
By releasing tension that surrounds your joints, you can return to a greater range of movement by using remedial massage. Your joint mobility gets restored as your therapist works on the muscles that surround the affected area.
It Stimulates Your Blood Supply
Remedial massage improves your blood flow, which in turn helps to speed your recovery, restore movement, and generate an overall feeling of good health.
Remedial Massage Reduces Stress (and Makes You Happier!)
When you feel stressed or in pain it's because you have heightened cortisol levels. Remedial massage is a natural, drug-free way of removing this stress hormone.
Even better, it also stimulates your serotonin and dopamine levels, leaving you with a happy, floating feeling that endures and improves with repeated massages.
It Helps With Headaches
If you suffer from chronic headaches, remedial massage is a great way to remove the tension and pain that goes with them. Our therapists can apply varying levels of pressure depending on your needs.
It Relieves Muscular Pain Caused By Exercise
Whether you have naturally tight muscles or you work out at the gym, remedial massage is a great way to release tight muscles. For exercise enthusiasts, it also helps to remove localised buildups of lactic acid, thus releasing the pain that everyone can feel after a heavy workout.
It's Great For Anxiety and Depression
Low levels of serotonin are associated with anxiety and depression. Massage is a great antidote because it stimulates the body's natural supply of the hormone, making it a terrific drug-free complementary therapy.
It Can Break Down Scar Tissue And Increase Mobility
Some people have naturally tight muscles, whilst others have muscles that cause pain due to a build up of scar tissue around a previous injury. Remedial massage targets trigger points and also stretches out abnormally shortened muscles. It is a relaxing way to break down and minimise the scar tissue that can be a source of pain.
It Can Help Cancer Survivors
Remedial massage can help to reduce the side effects of cancer treatments, including lymphoedema.
After chemo, it can help to remove any toxins that may linger in your body.
Also, as a natural mood lifter, it can help you deal with the stress and anxiety that this illness can bring.
It Can Speed Your Injury Recovery
Remedial massage helps to speed recovery by bringing blood to the affected area, reducing swelling, and improving chronic and acute conditions.
If you have injured yourself, consider a remedial massage after 72 hours of injury. Before this, use the RICE technique: Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation.
If your condition is more chronic, consider a remedial massage every 2-4 weeks to relieve your symptoms and increase your overall wellness.
