Remedial massage techniques have profound effects on muscle and soft connective tissues (myofascia).
When we suffer injuries, poor general health, anxiety or the effects of ageing, these soft tissues can become compromised and, with that, structure and organs are affected, reinforcing tightness within muscle and thereby misalignment of the skeletal system. Fatigue, discomfort, pain and distress can result, as can disease and musculoskeletal degeneration.
Correctly applied massage techniques can play an invaluable part in restoring good health and well-being. By removing toxins held in soft tissues, releasing tight, compromised myofascia and reducing tight areas of hypertensive, unhealthy muscle, a freer, greater range of movement can be restored in clients, resulting in improved physical and emotional responses, leading to a stronger body and mind. Techniques include deep tissue massage, myofascial release (MFR), soft tissue release (STR), muscular energy technique (MET), neuromuscular therapy (NMT), positional release therapy (PRT), proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation (PNF) and lymphatic drainage technique (LDT), which releases toxins by opening up the blocked pathways that are creating an unhealthy system.
