Remedial massage is the name given to the act of Natural healing by the scientific manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, by the the therapist's hand for a curative or therapeutic effect. Both acute and chronic conditions benefit with this type of massage.
Integrated Myofascial Therapy
IMFT is a whole body multi-disciplinary approach to health care; it incorporates an integration of tried and tested advanced soft tissue techniques. It focuses on Myofascial restrictions, that can restrict blood flow, nerve transmission and affect tissue health. This therapy is suited to chronic conditions, giving consistently positive relief to scar tissue adhesions.
Posture plays a major role in the health of the muscular system. An unbalanced posture, either related to work, past injury or purely bad habits, puts a tremendous strain on the body, which can lead to pain, stiffness or discomfort within the soft tissues, and /or a reduction of flexibility in the joints.
