Remedial/Deep Tissue Massage helps you get to the root of intense or long-standing pain and bring about health and healing. Your therapist will evaluate your particular needs, and then draw from a combination of advanced Massage techniques that go beyond the superficial muscle layer to realign muscle fibres, break up adhesions and increase range of motion and flexibility. Using firm, deep pressure, Massage will not only deeply relax your body, but also release tension from problematic areas and associated muscle groups. Pressure is applied slowly, allowing your tissue to unwind and relax as the Massage intensity increases.
The long term effect of Remedial Massage is the release and relaxation of the problem area. Your therapist may prescribe exercises to strengthen and stretch affected muscles between treatments or advise on lifestyle to help prevent the discomfort or mis-alignment from re-occurring.
