We are now offering remedial massage therapy with one of our qualified physiotherapists. This 30-minute session in our new ‘massage’ treatment room will allow you to relax, unwind, and chill whilst listening to ambient music, burning calming incense and relaxing with dimmed lighting.
Massage therapy is a great way to help relieve you of pain, stress and get you out of fight or flight mode! One of the immediate benefits of massage is a feeling of deep relaxation and calmness. This occurs due to massage prompting the release of endorphins – the brain’s chemicals that produce feelings of well-being. Levels of stress hormones, such as adrenalin, cortisol and norepinephrine, are also reduced. Studies also indicate that high levels of stress hormones impair the immune system.
Research indicates that massage is effective in managing:
- subacute/chronic low back pain
- delayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS)
- soft tissue injuries
- high blood pressure
They can also be effectively used to support people with a chronic disease.
These remedial massage sessions are a separate entity to our normal physiotherapy services where we would usually assess, diagnose and treat pain and injuries.
