Remedial Therapy

This therapy compliments other treatments, and can be a useful addition to exercise routines, post-operative rehabilitation, injury recovery or preparation for sporting events.

Remedial therapy is the therapeutic treatment of soft tissues including muscles, ligaments and tendons by means of massage and the mobilisation of joints.  It helps to prevent and treat musculoskeletal conditions and promotes the body’s own healing and defence systems by improving circulation and restoring nutrients needed for healthy tissues.  Remedial massage can also be used for general wellbeing, helping with the kind of discomfort that many of us take as part of daily living.
