Injuries to the Hamstring muscle, Quad muscle tears and Sacroiliac Joint injury respond very well to Sports Massage techniques. You don’t have to be an elite athlete to benefit from this form of massage – it is suitable for anyone who exercises.
Our highly trained Massage Therapists use a range of techniques, often combining Swedish, Sports and Remedial techniques in order to provide the maximum benefit to the patient.
Remedial means to restore or repair. It differs from Swedish massage in that it targets specific injuries by restoring homeostasis and full mobility of the body, bringing the body’s joints to full range of motion (ROM) and function and relieving muscle tension, allowing them to move freely without restriction. Like Sports massage, Remedial massage will improve circulation in the injured muscles, increasing oxygenation and promoting healing.
Remedial massage can be beneficial for those who experience neck pain, back pain, knee pain, hip pain, headaches. Pain symptoms often present from sources of discomfort related to muscles, joints, and connective tissue which can be relieved with Remedial Massage.
