Remedial Massage In

Bangor, County Down

  • ARE YOU RUNDOWN?

  • ARE YOU RECOVERING FROM A RECENT OPERATION?

  • DO YOU SUFFER FROM STRESS OR NERVOUS TENSION?

  • COULD YOUR BODY DO WITH A GOOD LOOSENING UP?

Then Remedial Massage may benefit you.

It is a curative treatment and assists the body to heal from muscular tension and affords pain relief.  We are all beset by a multitude of modern day pressures :- exams, traffic, pollution, work overload - no wonder we get depleted.  Running on empty makes us lose our ability to relax and this becomes our habitual state of being.

WHAT IS REMEDIAL MASSAGE?

Once upon a time there was massage and advanced massage therapy (1980’s)  Now, different massage techniques have been rebranded/renamed into different massage offerings- each having its own distinct flavour and target audience. 

 

In remedial massage, pressure used will typically be firmer than aromatherapy and it will incorporate advanced massage techniques tailored specifically to meet the needs and demands of your body.  It may be a full body massage or one targeted around a specific problem area.

 

If you suffer from muscular tension, tightness or discomfort, remedial massage may be exactly what you are looking for.

WHAT CONDITIONS CAN IT TREAT?

REHABILITATION

After an injury or operation we can often, especially over an extended period, become taut and lose flexibility.  Remedial massage can target those areas that have become tight. I will only use pressure appropriate to your needs.

RELAXATION

When we are stressed most of us tense our muscles.  Especially those in our upper back, shoulders, neck and jaw.  At the same time, many of us will hold our breath which will further tighten our chest.  Massage is one of the oldest therapies and helps to restore the body and the mind to a natural state of relaxation.

 

Typical scenario where a Remedial Massage would be beneficial  - say you are waiting for a knee replacement or have just had one.  You have been off your feet for a while and are experiencing stiffness or you have now developed a sore back because you have been walking awkwardly to save your knee - a massage would go a long way to giving you some much needed relief.

COMMONLY ASKED QUESTIONS

ARE REMEDIAL MASSAGES PAINFUL?

As a practitioner I use pressure appropriate for your condition.  Remedial massage uses a wide variety of techniques (soft tissue, joint mobilisation, neuromuscular techniques).  Can be a bit uncomfortable but is always beneficial at releasing bodily tensions and enhancing mobility.

WHAT SHOULD I DO AFTER HAVING A MASSAGE?

Have a hot bath, drink lots of water, rest and practice stretches or exercises provided.  Great for pain relief and can be equally beneficial for preventing discomfort, keeping you flexible and enhancing your overall health and wellbeing.
