Remedial massage is a massage technique that provides a remedy to muscular dysfunction.
Remedial massage separates scar tissue and realigns muscle tissue, with an aim to restore the body to a pain free, balanced state. It uses such techniques as Soft Tissue Release (STR) Neuromuscular Technique (NMT) and Muscle Energy Technique (MET). Sometimes remedial massage can be a little uncomfortable, but only in a way that you will instinctively know is beneficial. The independent therapists working with City Sports Massage will ensure you are never taken beyond your limit and you will be encouraged to feedback. In the context of massage, 'remedial' simply means 'curative' or 'supplying a remedy' - and as most people are seeking a sports massage treatment to remedy their pain, discomfort or stress, sports and remedial massage are intertwined.

More than just a deep tissue massage

They teach stretching techniques that can be used outside of clinic time and will investigate habits that are causing muscular distress. This maximises the effect of the treatment, making it more worthwhile for your body, and more cost effective for your wallet.
