The dictionary defines massage therapy as “the scientific manipulation of the soft tissues of the body for a therapeutic purpose to assist normalise tissues and consists of manual techniques that include applying fixed or movable pressure, holding, and or causing movement of or to the body” Source
Remedial massage is widely regarded as an effective form of manual soft tissue therapy. Many people report significant reduction of pain and functional improvement. The therapist will use varying degrees of appropriate hands-on pressure during your remedial massage.
Massage is a great way to reduce muscle soreness and tightness and can aid your recovery from injury. If you are suffering from a musculo-skeletal injury, talk to your physiotherapist to see if you will benefit from remedial massage therapy, as often this can facilitate quicker recovery times.
However – massage is not only for those with injuries and you do not need a referral. If you are feeling sore, stressed, tired, or just need a little pampering, then book in for a massage today.
