Remedial Massage Therapy

Stress, overworking and muscle pains are common things that you may suffer from in your daily life. As a result, it can cause adverse effects (either physically or mentally) and impact on overall quality of life (e.g. it may affect sleep, work or mood). This is where massage therapy can assist with offsetting these effects. Massage therapy is a type of non-invasive and low-risk treatment that manipulates the soft tissues in the body (muscles, connective tissue, tendons) with the intent of improving your health and sense of wellbeing. More specifically, it can mainly help with relaxation and reduce pain, as well as various other benefits (see below).

  • Improves mood and emotional states through relaxation (reducing stress and anxiety levels)
  • Increase blood circulation and reduces fatigue
  • Relieves pain and decrease stiffness, tightness, spasms
  • Reducing DOMS (delayed onset muscle soreness) – where muscle pain occurs 24 hours after exercise
  • Break down of scar tissue and adhesions
  • Improves range of motion
  • Good for injury management/rehabilitation (in conjunction with other treatments)
  • Improves the quality of life
  • Increases blood circulation of the body – muscles, skins, organs
  • Helpful in decreasing oedema (excessive fluid in the tissues) or swelling around a joint
  • Trigger Point Release – applied on trigger points or ‘knots’
  • Myofascial Release
  • Compression – direct pressure on the area that is to be treated
  • Petrissage – kneading
