The Benefits of Remedial Massage

Remedial Massage Therapy can bring relief from a wide range of recent and longstanding muscle and joint conditions. Some use Remedial Massage to simply relax and unwind, while others have a regular massage to help them manage or cope with specific physical, mental or emotional problems.

There is a growing body of evidence to suggest that massage can be effective in helping to treat certain chronic conditions, such as fibromyalgia and lower back pain. Guidelines, produced in 2009 by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE), recommend Massage Therapy for the early management of persistent, non-specific low back pain.

Remedial Therapy is a safe and effective treatment which benefits everyone — people of all ages and conditions. It is a holistic treatment for the whole body; not only the area where a specific problem has been located.

Benefits include:

  • Reduce anxiety and promote a more positive psychological state.
  • Helps to reduce pain and speeds recovery from injury
  • Relaxes muscles and allows the body to rest
  • Improves tissue elasticity and strengthens weak muscles
  • Breaks down scar tissue
  • Increases circulation – aiding tissue repair
  • Removes waste products – such as lactic acid
  • Encourages muscles to take up oxygen and nutrients
  • Improves mobility

The effectiveness of Remedial Massage is well documented by a growing body of clinical research: It can be beneficial following numerous types of surgery and also for a variety of medical conditions including:

  • circulatory problems including Oedema
  • Neurological Disorders
  • some Auto-Immune conditions
  • Muscle Spasms

Remedial Massage can also assist with pain control, and improve the quality of life, for sufferers of Multiple Sclerosis (MS), Parkinson’s Disease, and other Central Nervous System (CNS) conditions.

A number of case studies have shown encouraging results in ‘fascial release’ reducing the pain and severe mobility restrictions associated with connective tissue fibrosis/sclerosis among Systemic Sclerosis (SSc) clients.

Many clients have pain, as a result of specific injuries, such as Whiplash, Falls, Sports Injuries, Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI) and other work-related problems. However, the vast majority of pain originates in postural alignment problems that can go back to childhood and adolescence.

Remedial massage is one of the most effective and available ways to treat muscle injuries, pain and soreness.
