Remedial Massage Therapy
Massage therapy is a broad term encompassing many forms of massage treatment with varying levels of training from the personal interest course to that of the professional remedial therapist. Accredited remedial therapists have completed studies in human health sciences and a range of remedial massage therapy techniques as well as having completed supervised clinical practice sessions.
Patrick has over 20 years experience with massage and uses a combination of therapies in his treatments including sports massage, trigger point, Bowen technique and cupping. Treatments are determined by your needs as an individual.
How do you benefit from remedial therapies?
Whether the cause of your discomfort is work related, a sports injury or a nagging issue that just came on after doing something around the garden, remedial massage therapy may assist by
• relaxing muscles and reducing tension and cramping, leaving a feeling of well being;
• reducing the risk of fibrosis (stiffening) and adhesions in muscles and fascia;
• enhancing rehabilitation after injury;
• increasing your range of movement;
• dramatically reducing pain and discomfort
• relieving symptoms of fatigue by stimulating blood flow to and innervating the nervous system;
• alleviating the symptoms of repetitive strain syndrome by relaxing and
increasing muscle function and stretching contracted muscles
