Experienced West Gosford Remedial Massage Therapists

Remedial massage therapy is a method of enhancing soft tissue repair, regeneration, and pain relief, by manual manipulation of the the muscles and fascia (soft tissues) of the body.

If you feel that your muscles are tense, damaged or “knotted”, then remedial massage can help restore healthy muscle function.

The techniques of Remedial Massage Therapy have been developed over thousands of years. They are the perfect complement to many other healing modalities, such as Acupuncture, Chiropractic and Physiotherapy. The manual manipulation of the muscles and fascia of the human body is believed to assist in improving blood flow, lymphatic flow, posture, reducing chronic pain and assisting in the drainage of toxins from the tissues.

Patients present for a range of reasons, including acute and chronic muscle pain, muscle tension, stress, headaches, back ache, TMJ, shoulder pain, repetitive strain injuries, and sports injuries. In addition, a modified type of massage therapy is commonly found to be beneficial during pregnancy.
