What are the benefits of a Remedial Massage?
Improve posture and joint mobility
Tension in the back, neck and legs from sitting in the same position all day or performing repetitive tasks can cause the muscles to tense and lock your body into a state of poor posture. A remedial massage can help lengthen the muscles and bring balance back to the body, allowing you to practice better posture and reduce the risk of developing chronic pain.
A good night’s rest is critical for maintaining your overall wellbeing and health. Getting enough sleep is important not only to help our body rest and recover from the day but also for our ongoing mental health. Lifestyle factors such as stress, worry, anxiety, and work schedules can impact how well we sleep, so it’s important to create a routine that supports healthy sleep habits.
Strategies for getting a good night’s sleep include establishing a regular bedtime, avoiding caffeine and alcohol before bed, and winding down for 30 minutes before sleep. If you’re having difficulty sleeping, it’s best to consult with your healthcare provider to rule out any potential sleep disorders.
Reduces and alleviate recurrent pains
The body can be filled with aches and pains – lower backaches, headaches or tight shoulders are all common recurring pains that sometimes won’t go away despite your best efforts. One of the benefits of remedial massage is the fact it not only addresses the immediate pain and discomfort that is felt but also helps to identify and address the root causes of these problems.
Promotes better blood flow to the joints
Remedial massages are an effective way to increase blood circulation and help move blood through congested areas. The therapist may use a variety of techniques to achieve this, depending on your needs. This type of massage can help to improve joint mobility and repair damaged tissue.
