Remedial massage is different to other types of massage as it provides many additional benefits such as correcting and managing postural issues, increasing sports performance and reducing / eliminating physical pain and dysfunction. Remedial massage can provide fast temporary pain relief but remedial massage therapists also concentrate on finding and addressing the cause/s of the musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction, preventing further injury and maintaining optimal physical health.

Remedial Massage Assessment

Checking postural imbalance and any muscular tension that could be causing it.
Range of Motion Testing

Does Remedial Massage Hurt?
Each individual experiences pain differently and as a result each client requires a different amount of pressure during a session. It is important that clients aren’t resisting treatment and shortening the muscle as the therapist is working to release it. Our therapists work within your comfort level to get the best results from treatment.
