Remedial and Sports Massage in Helena Valley
About remedial massage
Remedial massage can stimulate the blood supply, make joints more mobile, and help to repair damaged tissues.
A massage is very therapeutic when your muscles are knotted, tensed or damaged, and may help bring relief from:
- neck, shoulder or back pain
- sports or other injuries
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.
Your 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 worth it!
Remedial massage is the systematic assessment and treatment of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body to assist in rehabilitation, pain and injury management. May support posture, lymph and blood circulation and increase energy flow.
Swedish massage aims to promote relaxation by releasing muscle tension. This is accomplished by rubbing the muscles with long gliding strokes in the direction of blood returning to the heart and can help increase oxygen in the blood. This technique may help towards decreasing muscle toxins, improve circulation and flexibility.
Pregnancy massage relieves many of the normal discomforts experienced during pregnancy, such as backaches, stiff neck, leg cramps, headaches and edema (swelling). A wonderful complementary choice for prenatal care. It is a healthy way to reduce stress and promote overall wellness using aromatherapy and flower essence to help relax, nurture and replenish.
