Treatment employs massage techniques designed to treat both deep and superficial tissues, not dissimilar to those used in sports massage. The remedial massage therapist uses skilled manipulation combined with in-depth knowledge of anatomy and physiology to bring about pain relief, correcting and normalising the body’s muscles and soft tissues.
Members of a reputable professional body will be able to identify anyone for whom massage would be ill-advised or detrimental to their short or long-term well being. They will assess each individual and provide the appropriate massage techniques, and advise on alternative action if required.
- We recommend at least an hour to gain full benefit
- A ½ hour, treatment is not strongly recommended but acceptable if you are very pushed for time. We would only have time to treat one specific area of the body.
- If you have complex or multiple issues, one longer treatment or a series of regular hourly sessions is considered to be most effective.
