REMEDIAL MASSAGE 

What is remedial massage?

Remedial massage therapy is a hands-on technique that genty massages the muscle tissue. Because it works deeper than regular relaxing massage, its effects are usually deeper and longer lasting.

Remedial massage can be used to prevent injury and also to help heal injury. Covering both muscular and skeletal dysfunctions, include fibrositis, spondylitis, arthritis, frozen shoulder, muscular cramps, whiplash, muscular atrophy, sports and dancing injuries etc.

A typical remedial massage therapy session takes between 20 - 30 minutes; this depends largely on the extent of your dysfunctions and on the amount of treatment that your body can realistically handle at one time. Too much treatment can be as ineffective as too little treatment. An extended remedial massage session may last between 30 - 45 minutes and is usually recommended if you have extensive problems over various areas.

What happens during a treatment?

Trigger points cause symptoms such as pain (often referred pain, which can be as intense as pain from any other cause), muscle stiffness, weakness, nausea and dizziness. Trigger points are tiny contractions of muscle fibres in a very small band of muscle tissue. Contraction takes place within the microscopic sarcomere of a muscle fibre, and a trigger point exists when over stimulated sarcomere become unable to release their contracted state. During this therapeutic massage treatment Natasha will feel for these knots (which rang in size from a pinhead to a pea), lying along a taut band of muscle fibres. They may be caused by accidents, falls, strains, postural stress and muscle over-use. They can lie latent within the muscle indefinitely (and don't actively refer pain), but they can also be activated by very little stress or strain. They are extremely painful when pressed upon. They are easily treated once found.

Natasha will trace the pain or injury back to the original area of damage, and use specialised massage techniques to break down the scar tissue and encourage it to reform in a way that encourages mobility. Massage will also encourage and support the body's own healing and repair mechanisms. Secondary damage will be treated in the same way, in order to restore biomechanical balance and to prevent recurrence of the problem.

Remedial massage has been, and can be, used to treat an extensive range of injuries and illness. These include:

    * sports injuries

    * fibrositis

    * muscular tension

    * circulation problems

    * headaches

    * back pain

    * whiplash injuries

    * sinus problems

    * frozen shoulder

    * neurasthenia

    * post-stroke

    * arthritis

    * paralysis

    * nervous exhaustion

Potential benefits include:

Short term effects are:

* to increase the blood flow, both in the area being massaged and generally

* to increase the lymphatic flow to and from the area treated, reducing pain, swelling and inflammation and speeding up the body's own healing process

* to relieve stress and tension, factors which are known to hinder healing or slow it down, and cause problems of their own

* to reduce muscle tension, thereby improving the blood supply to an area

* to increase muscle tone

Long term effects are:

* improved general circulation

* balance of the muscles and joints, leading to a better state of health

* breaking down of scar or fibrous tissue, restoring elasticity to the joints

* greater mobility within the joints of the body

* overall relief of stress

* greater immunity to further injuries of the same area
