Remedial Massage


Massage therapy is a manual form of therapy that kneads or manipulates muscles, soft tissue, muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia in order to improve a person’s wellbeing or health.

Massage therapy is one of the oldest healing traditions in the world. In addition to the relief of pain, it is also used for rehabilitation and self-care purposes, proving itself to be a holistic healing method.

Massage therapy relaxes muscle tissues, which reduces contractions around nerves (causing nerve compression) and spasms. It causes the nervous system to relax, increases circulation and normalisation of soft tissues.

Lymphatic Drainage Massage

Lymphatic drainage massage is a form of gentle massage that encourages the drainage of lymph nodes and movement of lymph fluids around the body. It can help relieve lymphedema.

The fluid in the lymphatic system helps remove waste and toxins from body tissues. Some health conditions can cause lymph fluid to build up. Lymphatic drainage massages can benefit people with lymphedema, fibromyalgia, or other conditions.

What are the benefits?

The lymphatic system plays a key role in the body’s immune defences.

Lymphatic fluid flows through lymph vessels, which connect lymph nodes. As it passes through the lymph nodes, white blood cells trap and destroy harmful particles, such as bacteria.

Like blood in the circulatory system, lymphatic fluid is always moving. If it stops, swelling can occur, as lymph fluid builds up, often in the arms or legs. Health experts call this lymphedema.
