What’s the Difference Between Remedial & Relaxation Massage?

Ever wanted a massage but can’t decide whether you need a remedial massage or simply a refreshing and stress reducing relaxation session? Well here’s an explanation to help you decide.

A relaxation massage helps to 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.

Or 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. After a free consultation an assessment will be made to see which muscles are causing you aches and tensions in order to construct an individual treatment plan . 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 complaints can be eased with a remedial treatment.

If you’d like more advice regarding what’s best for you, please call to discuss your condition. Or, simply book your appointment and enjoy the benefits.
