Description: Remedial Massage is a treatment modality that manipulates the soft tissues of the body including movement for a specific therapeutic effect, rather than a general therapeutic effect. It uses relevant techniques, lubricants and movements according to the client’s needs and response. This leads to the healing process, which begins at the cellular level aiding soft tissues in repairing, restoring functional integrity and adapting back to health.
The actual treatment intervention, such as massage, e.g. application of adequate and appropriate pressure to the soft tissues of the body including movement is only a part – though a highly significant part – of the whole process. The intellectual reasoning that precedes, accompanies and follows the treatment is essential and complex.
Myofascial Release Therapy is a very gentle yet very effective hands-on manual therapy using sustained pressure into restrictions in the fascial system. Fascia is a system of thin connective tissue that weaves continuously throughout the body including the muscles, bones, organs arteries veins etc. The therapy is based on the principle that poor posture, physical injury, illness and emotional stress can shift the body out of alignment and cause the intricate web of fascia to become tight and constricted. It connects every part of the body to every other part of the body.
This type of massage eliminates pain and restores motion and function to the body. Adhesions and scar tissue may also be broken down with these types of massage.
Acupressure is a technique of Chinese Traditional Medicine and is often described as 'acupuncture without needles'. Deep finger pressure is applied at certain points and can reduce tension, increase circulation and offer pain relief for many complaints, and removes energy blockages to promote good health. These points follow the energy channels of the body's meridian lines. Acupressure is one of the massage therapies that encompass the whole person including body, emotions, mind and spirit.
