Remedial Massage Therapy

Regular therapeutic massage treatments are one of the most enjoyable self care choices you can make. You might be working on resolving areas of tension, a recurring injury or strain, or aiming to keeping your body in its best working order. Your Remedial Massage will be adapted to how you like, focusing on your main areas of concern and adjusting pressure to your comfort levels.

Relaxation

Since people began using massage to look after themselves and one another they have been aware of its relaxing effects. When you feel relaxed you experience improvements in your blood circulation, lymphatic movement, nervous system and immunity. Scheduling yourself time to allow deep relaxation means you can bounce back into your busy life with the knowledge that you aren’t burning the candle at both ends.

Homework

  • WATER

Maintaining proper hydration is essential to our health. Fresh, filtered water helps to keep your blood clean, oxygenated and flowing freely. Water dilutes toxin accumulation which assists in your recovery from periods of illness or injury. Having a water bottle on hand after a Remedial Massage treatment helps you to avoid developing a headache or muscle soreness the next day.

  • POSTURE AND BALANCE

Supporting your body’s healing journey begins with preventing re-injury. Being mindful of your posture when sitting and standing helps to align your body’s structure to its most balanced condition.
Three top tips you can start today are:

  1. Standing with your weight evenly in both feet.
  2. Keeping your legs uncrossed when sitting.
  3. Using a bag that shares the weight evenly across your back rather than on one side of your body.
  • QUALITY REST

If you are feeling the aches and pains of a long day, it is important to give your body Quality Rest to recover and not let exhaustion creep into your life. Resting efficiently can’t happen on the couch in front of the telly. Setting aside time to lie down and close your eyes will provide your mind and body time to refresh and keep up with your busy life!
