Massage: What Is Remedial Massage?

Back In Action. Experts in clinical chiropractic & remedial massage; local to Tewkesbury

Remedial MassageMassage is a natural therapy involved with soft tissue manipulation and has evolved over thousands of years. From ancient China to present-day Europe, it has been used for the promotion and restoration of health.
In recent years there has been a remarkable increase in the use of massage as a therapy. The growth and acceptance of therapies complementary to orthodox medicine have led to massage being much more widely accepted as a treatment for all sort of stress related problems.
Massage is a non-invasive, non-threatening and natural therapy.

Clinical MassageRemedial Massage

The term "Remedial Massage" refers to a variety of techniques specifically designed to relax muscles by applying pressure to them against deeper muscles and bones, and rubbing in the same direction as the flow of blood returning to the heart. This also includes the use of deep tissue strokes, to help more chronic (long-standing) problems of the muscles, tendons and fascia.
This type of massage helps you de-stress and relax while improving your circulatory, nervous, lymphatic and digestive systems, and also loosening muscle tissue and releasing toxins from the muscles themselves.

Massage For Piriformis Syndrome / SciaticaSport massage

Sports massage is typically used before, during, and after athletic events. The purpose of the massage is to prepare the athlete for peak performance, to drain away fatigue, to relieve swelling, to reduce muscle tension, to promote flexibility and to prevent injuries.
Vigorous pre-event massage helps reduce sports-related injuries by warming, stimulating and preparing muscles and joints for increased activity while more restful post-sport techniques relieve sore, overworked muscles. Note: this does not need to be pitch-side.
Like any other massage at Back In Action, the treatment will be tailored to the individual.

Therapeutic MassageOr just for relaxation

People often seek massage for stress, tension, feelings of fatigue or general weariness. Massage is excellent at promoting relaxation when used in conjunction with exercise and other activities which promote physical and mental well-being.

Highly recommend Back in Action. I have been going to Alison at Back in Action for several years for both relaxation and to treat muscle & sports injuries related to running. The aromatherapy essential oils help relax and heal muscles and Alison's massage techniques release knots hidden in deep tissue. Well worth a visit for relaxation or for sports massage.
