What you can expect in a remedial massage appointment
Before any of our massage therapists work on the affected areas of your body, we will undertake aconsultation and assessment with you. This includes evaluating your current health conditions and how we can help give you the best results from your massage treatment.
After this discussion, we will then apply various massage techniques that include trigger point and deep massage therapy to help ease pain in affected areas. This can sometimes be painful for short periods, however, the benefits for the targeted areas is worth enduring. If the pain is too strong for you, we encourageyou to let our therapist know as your comfort is vitally important to us.
Muscle soreness is common after a remedial massage but it is just temporary, and after 24 to 48 hours, you will start to feel relief within your body. Following a remedial treatment, your body is still adjusting, naturally releasing toxins andregenerating. Your therapist may also give you tips and even stretches, for supporting better relief from your massages, or how to prevent injury, tension, etc, presenting in the future.
