Remedial Massage in London

Nina J. Monday, November 2, 2020
Remedial massage is the systematic assessment and treatment of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body to assist in rehabilitation, pain and injury management. 

It’s performed to create favourable conditions for the body to return to normal health after injury and is defined by the premise that the treatment can reasonably reverse certain physical effects a patient may be presenting.

If a patient has suffered a moderate injury resulting in structural pain and/or loss of function, then remediation is required to reduce or eliminate pain and restore that function.

Remedial massage is designed to balance muscle/soft tissue length, tension, tone which will in turn promote the return to normal joint/capsular/bone position; increase the flow of blood and lymph,
particularly in the injured areas, thus removing blockages, damaged cells, scar tissue and adhesions resulting from injury.

Remedial Massage uses advanced massage techniques working deeper within the muscles whilst being tailored specifically to the needs and demands of your body, which aims to treat muscles that are damaged, knotted, tense or immobile. It is useful for a number of problems that affect the muscles, tendons and bones.


The health benefits of remedial massage

Remedial massage can stimulate the blood supply, make joints more mobile, and help to repair damaged tissues. The therapist will aim to balance the length, tone and tension of muscles and tendons, which restores the correct position of the bones, increases blood flow and helps heal injuries.

Easing and stabilising the muscles can improve problems such as headaches, abdominal pain, low back pain and sciatic pain.

What is the Difference Between Remedial Massage and Relaxation Massage?

Some people like to define Remedial Massage in contrast to other styles of massage such as Relaxation Massage. The "Remedial" in the term Remedial Massage refers to the fact that it is aiming to treat one or more specific defined conditions. Some examples could include muscle spasm, postural issues or tension headaches.

Relaxation massage on the other hand generally treats the whole body and aims to relax a person. Because Remedial Massage claims to be able to assist in the treatment of specific soft tissue conditions, there is an emphasis on assessing the issue, measuring the pain, discomfort and/or restricted range of motion, applying specific techniques tailored to the issue and then measuring the result.
