Remedial Massage Therapy

Remedial massage therapy simply means using manual therapy techniques to “remedy” a problem. But, for the remedy to be effective, it is necessary to do more than simply relieve pain – the therapist must be able to understand how the problem came about and how it can be avoided in the future. To achieve this, our therapists use a range of massage and advanced soft tissue techniques set within a framework of assessment and rehabilitation procedures. As well as dealing effectively with a variety of musculoskeletal problems, remedial massage can also be used to help recovery and reduce the symptoms in many medical conditions too, including chronic pain, fatigue, and many others.

Sports Massage

Like Remedial massage therapy, Sport massage therapy is the management, manipulation and rehabilitation of soft tissues of the body including muscles, tendons and ligaments and is typically used to help prepare athletes for optimal performance during an athletic event, during training and for recovery after an event. Its purpose is to help alleviate the stress and tension which builds up in the body’s soft tissues during physical activity. Our therapists work with a broad range of clients in assisting with preventative treatment and injury recovery.
