Remedial Massage

Remedial Massage in Wollongong and Sutherland

Remedial massage is applied to treat injuries and also boost the body’s recovery process. Remedial massage involves the application of pressure; mild or strong, on the affected part. The amount of pressure applied is dependent on the type of problem being remedied. For minor issues, mild pressure is applied, but for serious problems, intense pressure has to be applied.

Remedial massage can be offered as:

Cranio-sacral

Benefits of remedial massage

Excellent reliever for muscular pain

Remedial massage is suitable for any type of muscle pain, be it the neck muscles, foot, knee, or muscles of the arm. It is important to note that most of the pain felt in these regions is usually caused by the contraction of muscles, a condition that is remedied through remedial massage.

A remedy for chronic pain issues

For most people that have been in an accident, sometimes the pain caused in parts of their body takes years to disappear. Some individuals assume that there is nothing that can be done about their situation, and they choose to leave with the pain. If you are a victim or know someone that’s suffering because of chronic pain, let them know that they do not have to live with the pain. With remedial massage, contracted muscles and chronically tight muscles are relieved, which goes a long way in alleviating the pain in chronic injuries. With the reduced pain, it even becomes easier for the injuries to completely heal because of the newly created flow of chi in the body.

Prevents the build-up of stress

It is important to note that even though stress is a mental condition, it has a significant impact on muscles in the body. That is why you will notice that you fatigue easily when you feel stressed – compared to when you are not stressed. This is because muscles tend to tighten when you are experiencing stress. Therefore, with a remedial massage in Wollongong central or in Sutherland, you are assured of a stress-free mind which results in your entire body feeling relaxed.

Improves flexibility

As the years go by, and one becomes old, they become less flexible and mobile because of their reduced engagement in activities they were used to. However, remedial massage can come in handy for such elderly people by improving their flexibility. Remedial sports massage is also quite crucial for the flexibility of sports persons.

Things you should know when going for remedial massage therapy.

a) When is the best time to go for remedial massage?

For chronic issues, remedial massage can be applied at any time one is able and wanting it. Its recommended that one have the sessions routinely to maximize the benefits obtained from the massage.

On the other side, if the massage is supposed to remedy recently obtained injuries, it should be performed ideally within 72 hours, and this should be after the injured part has been ice-treated to reduce inflammation.

b) How often should you go for remedial massage sessions?

For newly sustained injuries, a few sessions will work just fine. However, for those chronic conditions, they require several sessions for a long period for the injured part to recover fully. The frequency of the massage therapy should be a little bit higher at the beginning and then gradually reduced as you begin to feel better.

Your lifestyle also greatly affects how often you can have your massage sessions. If you are usually held up with work, you may opt for sessions during the weekend but if you have more free time, twice a week will do just fine.
