Remedial massage

Remedial massage

deep_tissueRemedial massage is successful where other forms of treatment have failed. It is done by a trained massage therapist to create the conditions for the body’s return to normal health after injury or with muscular – skeletal disorders. Also used to treat chronic structural imbalances, strains, sprains, broken bones, bruising or any injury where the skin is intact. Actually it is a deep tissue massage that removes blockages, damaged cells, scar tissue and adhesions left after injury, speeds up recovery and encourages more complete healing.  Also used for conditions created by lifestyle for example repetitive strain injury and back pain. It is designed to increase the flow of blood and lymph, particularly in the injured areas.

The massage therapist needs definitely good knowledge of anatomy and physiology to determine how to treat each patient and uses the patient’s feedback to pinpoint the damaged tissue and to regulate pressure. Some results are usually immediate and definitely within 3 sessions a big improvement will be seen with a good practitioner. Most patients feel a difference immediately after 1 session. For a recent injury, perhaps within weeks, they will react and recover more quickly than patients with a long-term injury, some up to years. However, they will all see improvement.

Remedial Massage has particular success with long-standing back and compound injuries that have resisted previously to other treatments.

Some common conditions that can be successfully treated are:

• achilles tendon • tendinitis  • sciatic nerve pain • cartilage damage • tennis elbow • frozen shoulder • hamstring injuries  • scar tissue • adhesions • carpal tunnel syndrome • repetitive strain injury

It is a little bit an unusual form of massage because it is not set out to relax the patient; the intention is more to fix a mechanical problem. However, all-round health improvement is seen: a better sleep, increase in vitality and performance levels, as well as increased mobility and a better posture. It can also be used to treat general muscle soreness from over exertion.

How to make peace with the past…

Let go of the past and the past will let go of you.

“What you need to know about the past is that no matter what has happened, it has all worked together to bring you to this very moment. And this moment you can choose to make everything new. Right now.”  Unknown
