Remedial Massage is a form of deep tissue massage which is focused on regaining normal muscle and soft tissue flexibility to assist recovery from or to help prevent injury. This form of massage works by increasing blood flow to the tissues, assisting with scar tissue breakdown, and encouraging lymphatic drainage of swelling and waste products. When muscles and tendons become damaged or impaired, knotted and tense or immobile, remedial massage provides a healing treatment that can be gentle or strong, deep or shallow.
Remedial massage treats the body holistically, tracing the discomfort as far as possible back to the original cause, healing both the cause as well as the symptoms.
There are different types of massage. Here at SportsMedNQ, we focus on Remedial/sports massage which involves a little more pressure in order to reach deep muscles and assist with muscular function.
