The benefits of remedial massage

What Remedial Massage Can Do For You… 

Remedial massage has many benefits, ranging from pain relief of tense muscles to mental relaxation.

  1. Reduces Anxiety and Stress Levels –

    The relaxing sensation of remedial massage releases endorphins which lowers adrenaline and cortisol levels, which are the hormones responsible for stress! This can positively reduce anxiety, stress, and depression, and improve energy and concentration levels. Massage can also improve blood circulation, reduce inflammation, and alleviate bodily pain, further producing positive emotions and overall comfort.

  2. Increases Joint Mobility & Flexibility –

    Issues with joint mobility typically stem from tension in the surrounding muscles that are tight or overworked. Our massage therapists use a range of stretching and mobilisation techniques to improve blood circulation and alleviate muscle tension. This simultaneously reduces pain and stiffness, as well as increases joint stability, mobility, and flexibility.

  3. Alleviates Pain & Inflammation –

    Through techniques such as kneading, massage can help break up knots causing tension and discomfort, as well as increase blood flow (containing healthy oxygen and nutrients) to inflamed muscle areas. This targeted approach alleviates overall bodily pain, and minimises inflammation, to ensure you can get on with everyday tasks with adequate mobility and comfort. Where pain and inflammation are in the neck and shoulders, such techniques can also heal tension contributing to headache or migraine pain.

  4. Improves Blood Flow –

    The pressure applied through massage stimulates the body’s circulatory system, improving blood flow. Increased blood flow results in quicker healing of tense muscles and damaged tissue, improving overall bodily comfort.

  5. Improves Sleep –

    High-quality sleep is essential for life – it supports physical recovery, brain development, memory, learning, and overall mood. Thus, when muscle pain disrupts your sleep, this can have a significant impact on your physical and mental health. Massage triggers the release of serotonin, which then produces melatonin, the hormone responsible for winding down the body for sleep! Thus, by reducing muscle tension to minimise pain, relax the body, and reduce stress, massage can promote a good night’s sleep!

  6. Injury Prevention & Treatment –

    Stretching, relaxing and loosening muscles during massage helps to improve the overall strength and stability of the muscle. This reduces the likelihood of damage during exercise and can also aid in rehabilitating existing injuries!
