What is Remedial Massage?
Remedial massage is a holistic treatment involving the use of many styles of massage and a wide range of diagnostic techniques to treat a condition.
Remedial Massage therapy is the process of physical manipulation of the bodies soft tissues for improving circulation and reducing tension, which in turn leads to a greater healing ability, fewer aches and pains and a general sense of health and well-being. Massage stretches and mobilizes the muscles, ligaments and tendons improving mobility.
