Massage is typically used to treat or prevent a large range of musculo-skeletal injuries or disorders. Excess stresses can cause pain or discomfort in a joint or muscle that is subjected to overuse, incorrect use or lack of use. Massage also helps to alleviate joint restrictions, common postural problems and misalignment, headaches, muscle spasm, fluid retention and general aches and pains.
The benefits of remedial massage include:
Increased range and ease of movement
Increased postural awareness
Increased physical performance and concentration
Increased flexibility, muscular strength and circulation
Decreased pain, tension and stress
Decreased risk of injury from physical activity or heavy work
Better sleep patterns and higher energy levels throughout the day
General feeling of well-being.
Various techniques may be incorporated during a treatment. These can include: deep tissue, sports and relaxation massage; trigger point therapy; muscle energy techniques to restore correct muscle length; myofascial releases to reduce adhesions within the muscle tissue; and stretching to improve posture and muscle balance.
