Remedial massage is a hands-on therapy that tries to rehabilitate injured, knotted, tight or immovable muscles. This treatment helps the body’s natural healing process by identifying and repairing damaged parts of the body. The pressure might be deep and intense, or mild and shallow, depending on the injury or desired goal.
Remedial massages should be done on a regular basis or as part of a preventative maintenance plan. The frequency of your massage therapy will be determined by your individual needs. The therapists can help you determine how often you should get a remedial massage, whether it’s monthly, quarterly, or on an as-needed basis.
- Immunity boosting
Your immune system will be able to perform more efficiently and without being harmed as a result of the reduction in stress hormones. Massage also promotes circulation and lymphatic drainage, both of which help the immune system function more effectively.
- Heightens mental alertness
Your mental clarity and alertness improve when you are given the opportunity to relax and de-stress through massage treatments.
- Increased joint mobility
The range of motion in a joint can be expanded by relieving muscle tension around it. Muscle function can return to support and improve joint movement if a joint is no longer restricted by stiffness.
- Improved posture
Massage relieves a lot of stress, especially in the neck and shoulder areas, which are frequent in people who sit a lot of work at a computer. Long periods of sitting can also cause tightness in the lower back. Remedial massage can assist to alleviate these issues by stretching muscles and balancing the body for better posture alignment.
- Stress reduction
The value of relaxation and well-being cannot be overstated, and one of the most noticeable massage results is a stronger sense of peace and relaxation. It is frequently advised in stress and anxiety therapy programs since it relieves both emotional and physical tension. Massage’s relaxing and pampering effects increase the release of endorphins, the lovely chemicals that make us feel happy. Stress hormones like norepinephrine, adrenaline, and cortisol, on the other hand, are lowered.
- Getting rid of ‘vicious cycle’ complaints
Despite our best efforts, things occasionally go wrong! Tension headaches, for example, can be caused by clenching one’s jaw repeatedly. The clenching of the jaw could be a stress reaction to pain in the neck and shoulders, or elsewhere in the body. By addressing the root of the pain, the jaw will stop clenching involuntarily, reducing or eliminating tension headaches.
Whether it’s for insomnia, headaches, depression and anxiety, back pain, arthritis, high blood pressure, chronic pain, or constipation, research has shown that remedial massage can help with a variety of health issues. Massage also helps to increase suppleness, moisturize, and soften dry skin by stimulating sebum production.
