Remedial Massage can be an important part of your health regime for many reasons, including reducing pain and stress relief. But, with summer here many of our Melbourne clients are relying on remedial massage to help them get into shape faster with less stiffness and soreness, allowing them to push their bodies harder. At Melbourne Natural Therapies we believe one of the most important aspects of remedial massage is that it helps prevent the injuries that will set you back.
We all know the enormous benefits of exercise and keeping the body active. Anyone who routinely pushes their physical limits through any movement, sports, strength training or aerobic activity can benefit from remedial massage. Whether you are a weekend warrior that fits in workouts between work and family or a serious athlete, massage in an important part of any sports program.
Remedial massage helps the body recover from the stresses of strenuous exercise, and facilitates the recovery process. The physiological benefits of massage include improved blood and lymph circulation and muscle and general relaxation. These, in turn, lead to removal of waste products and better cell nutrition, normalisation and greater elasticity of tissues, deactivation of trigger points, and faster healing of injuries. It all adds up to relief from soreness and stiffness, better flexibility, and less potential for future injury.
With regular remedial massage for maintenance the therapist can zero in on particular muscle groups and work specific tissues, they can help maintain or improve range of motion and muscle flexibility. The overall objective of a maintenance program is to help you reach optimal performance through injury-free training. Regular massage also gives a therapist a chance to find your unique trouble spots. They can pay special attention to these areas, monitor them for developing problems, and help keep them in good condition. An experienced remedial massage therapist can also compliment treatment received from other health care professionals for various injuries.
