  • pain and movement restriction caused by sporting injuries
  • stress related tension in shoulders
  • soreness in the lower back and legs caused by gardening or hiking.

Remedial massage

Remedial massage therapists treat a range of muscular issues which have either come about suddenly or have been left untreated for a number of months/years.

Remedial massage students use their assessment skills to assess a painful region of the body in order to create a treatment plan to restore pain free movement and to improve the overall quality of your area of concern.

Remedial massage students use assessment, soft tissue massage, lymphatic drainage, cupping, corrective exercises and stretches to assist with the recovery of a painful muscle group in order for you to reach your personal goals or to simply improve movement in a specific area of the body.
