Remedial Massage

Practitioners – Al Bevan, Cheri StevensTakako Mizogami, Karen McKay and Pearl van der Straaten

Remedial Massage targets specific areas of the body which are causing problems for the client. This often involves a postural assessment where the therapist observes postural imbalances within the body and establishes what is contributing to the underlying issue. This information aids them in determining how to treat the client.

Techniques used can include, stretching, trigger point therapy, myofacial release, ischemic compression and cross fibre mobilisation, to name a few and tend to work deeper into the tissue than a relaxation massage.

Remedial Massage breaks down scar tissue and adhesions, increases blood flow to the damaged area, improves lymphatic flow, relieves muscle tension and stiffness,  increases mobility and range of motion, and calms the peripheral nervous system to ease pain and discomfort.

Some of the conditions Remedial Massage can assist with are: Lower back pain, tight neck or shoulders, headaches or migraines, joint problems, muscle strain, chronic pain conditions, RSI, whiplash, frozen shoulder, and tendonitis.
