A remedial massage is targeted to a specific area and is essentially the manipulation of the body’s soft tissue (muscle) in order to prevent injury, heal an injury, improve performance for an upcoming event or else help the body to heal in its recovery from RSI (repetitive strain injury). So, remedial massage is used to repair damaged areas of the body and speed up the body’s own healing processes. The pressure applied in this healing treatment can either be strong and deep or gentle and shallow, depending on what is needed. The benefits of remedial massage are amazing and are brilliant for active individual’s who are suffering from aches and pains that can often affect the body’s muscles, ligaments and tissues. These treatments are really effective because they are not just designed to get you back into action faster, they also promote long-term changes in the way your body operates – helping to reduce injury-proneness.
