If you’re an athlete or gym goer, or someone who has an active lifestyles, remedial massage could be
the answer for you. It’s also ideal if you have to sit for long periods of time in your work or daily life.
Some people are afraid that remedial massage will be painful and involve a lot of hard pressure, but
it doesn’t have to be. I use a combination of remedial and relaxation techniques to create the best
massage for you.
Myofascial release helps lengthen, stretch and soften the fascia – the body's connective tissue that
holds the muscle, organs and bone together. For this technique I apply gentle, sustained pressure to the area.
Myofascial cupping is another effective way of releasing the fascia.
Trigger pointing focuses on areas within the fascia that are tight or sore. I use targeted pressure on
the trigger points to help unlock knots and ease chronic pain and headaches. Trigger pointing can be
momentarily painful but also incredibly relieving, especially when performed on a regular basis.
I also use remedial techniques during your sports massage or relaxation massage. Before
your treatment I’ll talk to you about the areas you’d like to focus on and what you’d like achieve
from your massage. It’s about finding the right balance for you.
