Remedial Massage is a modality which can be used to help alleviate stress the body receives from constant demands we place on our bodies. Our bodies are in more stress than ever before with the demands we are placing on ourselves. Stress from driving to and from work. This places constant demands on our neck, shoulders and arms and also the need of continually being aware mentally strains the neurological muscular anatomy system. Regular Remedial Massage will help settle the nervous system from being constantly aware and will soften the muscles from tightness and ease strain on muscles too. Remedial massage also helps re-align posture so the body is not shorter on one side. If the body stays tight on one side for a sustained period of time. This can become quite painful if not addressed to re-align posture.
In this session the therapist is aware that the therapy is not remedial though therapeutic massage which is a gentler form of therapy. Therapeutic massage is more concentrated on body parts than the whole body. Neck, shoulders and arms. Sometimes a client will just want their back worked on in a massage therapy session, the cervical,thoracic and lumbar muscles of the back. Whereas in remedial massage this is more working the posture and realignment – therapeutic massage is softening the body from stress on certain parts of the body and it is a softer form of massage. Hairdresser's often ask for a therapeutic massage for their neck, arms and hands due to the rigours of repetitive work which henceforth strains muscles from repetitive work.
