Why have a Remedial Massage?
Remedial massage locates areas of the body that may be tight, tense, weak or damaged and speeds up the body’s own natural healing processes. The pressure applied in this healing treatment can either be strong and deep or gentle and shallow, depending on the problem and on the body’s needs. Problems with the muscles can trigger or radiate pain to other parts of the body. Therapeutic remedial massage aims to trace the original reason for the pain, tackling both the cause of the problem and the symptoms.
Remedial massage is one of the most healing therapeutic wellness treatments you can do for yourself.

All of our remedial massage team can compliment your massage with Cupping; Cupping is a form of traditional medicine used by many cultures since ancient times. It is much like a reverse massage where instead of compression into the soft tissue, suction is applied as the therapist applies the cups and uses a pump to remove the air, pulling the tissues into the cups. This has been shown to create movement and gliding of the tissues beneath the surface, decrease muscle tension and increase blood flow which in turn helps, nourish the area with oxygen and aid in healing.
We also have Sarah our Dry Needling artisan in on Tuesdays.
Generally dry needling is pain free. You may feel tingling or twitching as the needle goes into the muscle and does its job to bring blood flow to the specific area. It is a safe and effective treatment and needed for those who have severe muscle and tissue damage. Dry needling’s main focus is to reduce muscle spasms and provide pain relief.
