From time to time our bodies undergo stress and fatigue. Our muscles tighten and we can be left feeling not only pain or discomfort but also mental strain, and if untreated can result in chronic pain, which can lead to more serious burdens on the body.
Remedial massage will not only help with our body’s aches and pains, but will also help our stress levels subside. In our busy lives, we are constantly reacting to pressures associated with everyday life, and it is no surprise to see that we generally fail to think of treating ourselves. So, if we expect our bodies to perform at the best it can be, why don’t we invest in our body, to help it cope with all these added pressures?
How does remedial massage work?
Firstly, the main objective of remedial massage is to help the muscles relax. Remedial massage works by breaking down the massage spasms and helps to soften the hard muscle tissue, hence releasing stiffness.
By concentrating on overused muscles, Remedial Massage Therapists can treat damaged or troublesome areas and in doing so are able to realign the body, so it can start to repair itself and give you relief.
By concentrating on stiff or injured muscles, remedial massage therapists can specifically target effected areas to not only alleviate pain and discomfort but to also help release toxins.
Remedial Massage encourages recovery of soft tissue damage
Soft tissue damage can cause significant pain and if gone untreated can lead to other surrounding areas also being affected. Remedial massage therapy can help reduce inflammation to soft tissue and as a result can help reduce pain.
Remedial Massage helps to improve blood circulation
Massage therapy helps to improve blood circulation by flushing lactic acid from the muscles, and this is achieved from squeezing and pulling of the muscles. By improving the circulation of the lymph fluid, enables the body to carry away metabolic waste from the muscles and organs, hence resulting in lower blood pressure and encouraging improved body function.
Remedial Massage increases flexibility and joint mobility
By removing inflammation to affected areas in the muscles, remedial massage enables the joints to move more freely, and as a result promotes joint mobility. This increases the body’s ability to keep the joints and muscles supple, which means a happier and healthier body.
Remedial Massage helps improve posture
Let’s face it, the vast-majority of us have jobs where we are sitting at desks, or work in environments, which aren’t the best for our posture. It is also very easy to fall into a trap where we sit in these positions for extended periods of time. And if left unchecked, our bodies can develop muscle aches or strains. These strains can then get progressively worse and in some cases, can be quite debilitating. Remedial massage can help lengthen our muscles and keep the body well balanced.
