Having your first remedial massage can be intimidating, especially if you don’t know what’s involved.
But whether it’s a casual visit or regular part of your wellness routine, a remedial massage can alleviate a long list of conditions both in the short and long-term.
Why choose ‘remedial’?
Remedial massage is different to most other forms of ‘relaxation’ massage in that it is used to aid the treatment of medical conditions. Therapists are more qualified in requiring a diploma in addition to a certificate in order to isolate and assess muscular dysfunction, injury or damage, and to treat accordingly.
The practice has many benefits including increasing circulation, improving joint mobility and relieving muscular pain, tension and swelling, and is also proven to combat stress and headaches.
Should I only get a remedial massage for a sports injury?
Of course not! Aches and niggles in ALL forms are welcome at APEX - after all, you don’t have to be an athlete to be in pain. Many remedial massage clients are dealing with postural stress or to counteract ‘tech-neck’ and hours of sitting in an office. Work and lifestyle demands tend to manifest in the shoulders and neck, which is just one of many examples that regular massages can assist with in both treatment and prevention.
What remedial massage appointment should I book?
At APEX, we have initial consultations available for new clients to discuss injuries, issues and benefits they hope to achieve from their treatment, as well as 60 and 90 minute appointments for returning clients. Appointments are quick and easy through our online system - book yours HERE.
