WHAT'S A REMEDIAL MASSAGE SESSION?

 

Remedial massage is a science-based bodywork practice aimed at improving joint mobility, correct posture, reduce discomfort and encourage appropriate recovery from injury. It is a very effective therapy providing good results in a reasonably short time.

In my practice I combine sport/remedial techniques with an holistic approach to the whole person, taking in consideration his/her psycho-socio-emotional profile with the final aim to support vitality and wellbeing.

To enhance the benefits of the massage, I often prescribe sets of stretching, strengthening and mobilisation exercises in conjunction with dietary, herbal and lifestyle advice

  • MUSCULAR TENSION 

  • STRESS, INSOMNIA AND HEADACHES
