The remedial massage practitioner uses a wide range of modern techniques to find the underlying cause of a musculoskeletal disorder, and guides the body into healing itself.
Massage reduces muscle tension and increases the blood flow and lymphatic flow both to and from the area being treated, reducing pain, swelling and inflammation.
Remedial massage helps to break down fibrous tissue, balances the muscles and restores joint elasticity and mobility. It is important to identify the cause of the symptoms to prevent the problem reoccurring.
It can benefit people who have back pain and shoulder problems; sprains, strains or other injury; both pre and post natal; have arthritic conditions; and headaches.
There are many different forms of massage. At Northside Therapies we offer the following:
- Swedish Massage
