A Remedial Massage Can Provide Relaxation And Much More!

and the good news is we can provide both!

Relaxation Massage is also referred to as Swedish massage. It’s a massage style whose main focus is to relax the superficial muscles of the body. A relaxation massage is the most typical kind of massage available.

Remedial massage can be similar in terms of the massage techniques used but it has a very different purpose. It is an effective massage technique that manipulates superficial and deeper muscles in the body as well as providing a specific therapeutic effect – dealing with a specific or a range of specific issues.

Relaxation Massage is also referred to as Swedish massage. It’s a massage style whose main focus is to relax the superficial muscles of the body. A relaxation massage is the most typical kind of massage available and very often provided in a spa type setting.

It does not delve into the deeper structures, it doesn’t try to fix or correct any issues, it doesn’t try to get out any knots, the main focus is relaxation. This is not to denigrate a relaxing massage as many wonderful things happen when your body is relaxed. Your heart rate slows, your whole body opens up, and a nice fresh rush of blood with oxygen and nutrients can feed every cell in your body.

During daily life  you will experience a build-up of lactic acid as a result of stress, exercise or by-products from normal cell metabolism build up in your muscles.  When lactic acid remains in your tissue, you become stiff and sore.

In short, a relaxation massage is just that. It’s aimed at relaxing the body and the mind, opening up the whole body, increasing circulation and taking away pain.

Massage to relieve pain and discomfort

Remedial massage can be similar in terms of the massage techniques used but it has a very different purpose. It is an effective massage technique that manipulates superficial and deeper muscles in the body as well as providing a specific therapeutic effect – dealing with a specific or a range of specific issues.

Remedial massage uses a range of techniques promoting the body’s self-healing process leading to the repairing of soft tissue injuries and restoring normal function to the muscles. Remedial massage is used with deep pressure to treat muscular-skeletal injuries and improving recovery. Our experienced and highly qualified massage therapists at Aberdeen Osteopathy Clinic use remedial massage as an effective treatment for a range of conditions.

What is a remedial massage used for?

Remedial massage can be used for many circumstances. These circumstances include:

  • Relieving tension
  • Decreasing pain
  • Removing toxins out of the body

 

Remedial massage is used for relieving tension in the muscles. Muscle tension is caused by muscles contracting when in a relaxed state. Muscle tension helps to maintain posture and everyday movements. An increase of muscles tension can cause stiffness, pain and restrict movement. Massage is able to help relieve symptoms of muscle tension and improve recovery.

Remedial massage can also help to decrease pain in many ways. Massage increases blood flow to an area, triggers the brain to release natural pain killers, interrupts pain signals to the brain removes waste products and restores increased range of movement. Massage can also be used to decrease pain on many occasions such as, post injury, post event and pre event.

A remedial massage is used to remove waste products and toxins from out of the body. When muscles are not able to function properly it can cause reduced circulation and inflammation through a build-up of toxins. Remedial massage can help flush out toxins through the lymphatic system and stimulate the blood circulation increasing the healing process to an affected area.

Remedial massage is effective to be used post injury. Injury to the muscles can cause chronic pain and tension caused by trauma or overuse. Painful adhesions can occur after injury or surgery, preventing movement. By applying pressure along the muscle fibres remedial massage breaks downs adhesions in the connective tissue, restoring range of movement. The release of adhesions improves circulation around an area, reducing stress and pain relief.
