REMEDIAL MASSAGE

Available in all price packages

Remedial massage is a form of deep tissue massage and one of the most effective ways to prevent and treat muscle injuries, pain and soreness.

 

Remedial massage tends to be deeper and more targeted. If you have pain as a result of specific injuries: whiplash, falls, sports injuries, repetitive strain injuries, work-related problems or postural problems, remedial massage can help. Using an in-depth knowledge and understanding of anatomy and physiology, an assessment is made and appropriate treatment is provided for a wide variety of conditions. Some common conditions that can be successfully treated are: Frozen Shoulder, Back Pain, Knee Pain, Headaches, Neck Pain, Achilles Tendonitis, Plantar Fasciitis, Tennis Elbow, Hamstring Injuries, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome, Wrist Pain, Pelvic Pain and Temporomandibular Joint (TMJ) Syndrome.

 Skilled manipulation and massage techniques are used, designed to treat both deep and superficial tissues, not dissimilar to those used in sports massage; to bring about pain relief, correcting and normalizing the body’s muscles and soft tissues. Results can be immediate; certainly within a few sessions improvements should be seen.

If you have a chronic condition or you are in chronic pain it is important to commit to weekly treatments for six weeks. A reassessment will be made after six weeks. As improvements are made, gradually the time between treatments will be increased, until you reach the final stage of recovery, after which you need only return monthly for maintenance treatments.

You don’t need to have an injury to benefit from remedial massage, prevention is better than cure. Remedial massage is often used for regular maintenance treatments; to detect and treat minor soft tissue problems (before you even notice them) and dealing with them before a more serious injury occurs, in order to achieve optimum health.

What Our Clients Say

  • I've suffered for a number of years with lower back, neck and shoulder pain taking stronger pain killers over time. A work colleague recommended Sally and the remedial massage she offers. I couldn't believe how much pain had been relieved after the first treatment on my lower back. I could bend and pick goods off the bottom shelf of a supermarket, something I struggled with a week before. Three sessions on my neck and shoulder followed, relieving so much pain from that area - I can actually look over my right shoulder without moving my whole upper body. A second session on my lower back has left me in such a good place now, far less pain and a good understanding of why the pain occurred i.e. bad posture. I'm recommending Sally to friends and family with muscle pain similar to mine. The whole experience is so friendly, relaxing, the scent, the music and the heated massage table. Pain killers no longer required.

  • After suffering with facial pain and sinus problems for more than two years I decided to try massage for stress relief. I can honestly say that after only two treatments from Sally my symptoms have started to ease and my energy levels have increased. Sally offers a comfortable and professional service and I would highly recommend the remedial facial and neck massage.  

    Kristien Pearson

  • I immediately felt at ease when I visited for the first time. Sally is very skilled at remedial massage and acupuncture. She took a lot of time to understand the problem and give the treatment. I started to feel the benefits the next day and had further improvements after each session. I would thoroughly recommend Sally.

    Carol Leak

  • A fantastic experience from online booking through to the after service. Not only do you get one of the most robust, targeted and non-hurried massages going (I have the remedial sessions), but there's lots of science stuff to go with it. So when you have an ache, you don't just get a knot worked on, you get a proper explanation of what's going on with your posture to create it in the first place, a look at an iPad app with photos of posture and detailed background, then a massage focussed on that issue, as well as some exercises emailed home afterwards so that you try and fix what the issue was over the long term. Plus the room itself is really lovely, modern and relaxing, and Sally is a very welcoming, skilled practitioner. Can't think why you'd want to get a massage anywhere else!

    Mark Newton

  • I recently went for my first appointment with Sally for a pregnancy massage due to an aching back from all the extra weight on the front! Sally made me feel welcome immediately and the atmosphere of the studio instantly made me feel relaxed. The massage experience itself was brilliant and Sally freed my back from the tight tension I went in with. The overall experience was amazing from start to finish and I'll definitely be heading back again. Thank you Sally!

  • I have been going to the gym for several years now. I’m in my mid fifties and every so often I seem to injure myself for one reason or another. I end up having to take time out from the gym until I recover. One nagging problem I had for about two years, before meeting Sally, was Golfers elbow. I had been to the Doctors a few times regarding this problem, and I was told to wear a Tennis /Golfer Elbow support strap and stay away from weights in the Gym. But when I met Sally and she told me she could help, I thought I would give it a try. Well, if I’d have known Sally could relieve the pain in just a few massages I would have gone to her a lot sooner. I wish the Doctor had told me to get help rather than fobbing me off with a couple of useless suggestions. I’m now a regular at Sally’s, she just seems to know what is needed for whatever I go to see her about, I now go for prevention massages rather than wait until I’m injured, Sally will recommend stretches to prevent future problems when she notices tight muscles. Sally gives a very relaxing, unhurried massage. Every time I see her, she is so professional and knowledgeable, and her room is so relaxing with the soft music and oil diffuser fragrances. Sally is also very easy to get on with. I would recommend Sally to anyone and in fact I already have, to more than a few.
