What is Remedial massage?

Remedial massage is treatment for the relief of pain. It helps many muscular conditions, both chronic, (such as long standing arthritis) and acute (such as sudden back strain). Remedial massage works thoroughly through muscles and associated soft tissue to aid healing after injury, relax muscle fibres which have been strained and are in spasm, or release specific areas of tension which are causing pain. Painful joints are eased by working on the surrounding muscles which feed and support the joint.
