Remedial Massage & Soft Tissue Mobilisation

For thousands of years massage has been used for its therapeutic and healing effects on the body. While it has not always been understood why massage worked, the positive results were recognised and appreciated. From the relief of muscular and skeletal pain to the treatment of a wide range of conditions and ailments, massage has proven itself an effective tool for medicinal healing and general body maintenance.

Modern advances in science and medicine have brought with them a better understanding of how and why massage works. A better understanding of the biomechanics of the body has also brought important advances in massage itself. This increased knowledge has allowed for the refinement of existing techniques and has allowed development of new approaches.

Today, massage has again entered the medical mainstream and is seen by many as an important adjunct to qualified medical treatment.
