Remedial or Relaxation Massage?

Remedial Massage vs Relaxation Massage

Ever wanted a massage but couldn’t decide whether you needed a remedial treatment or simply a refreshing and stress reducing relaxation session? Well here’s an explanation to help you decide exactly what you want!

What is a Relaxation Massage?

A relaxation massage helps de-stress and loosen up your body and is great for those who have had a hard working week or feel like treating themselves to some TLC! The treatment consists of flowing strokes, kneading and gentle manipulations of the muscles performed at your chosen pressure. It is a pain free way to relax both your muscles and your mind.

What is a Remedial Massage?

If you have particular muscle tension or chronic pain a remedial massage may be for you. Your remedial massage therapist will assess where you need treatment and what may be causing your pain. They’ll perform some tests to see exactly which muscles are giving you trouble and will tailor a treatment plan to suit. The treatment itself may involve deep tissue work for short periods of time, but the results are definitely worth it! 

Conditions such as sciatica, carpal tunnel, stiff necks, headaches, sports injuries and many more can be eased with a remedial treatment.
