Remedial massage’s origins can be traced back to Greece from 800-700BCE when the Greeks introduced techniques to deliver therapeutic relief for athletes to targeted areas of the body.
 
Remedial massage has a host of benefits for both body and mind that can improve your quality of life. This form of massage differs from full-body massage in that it’s focused on a specific area of the body requiring rehabilitation. Additionally, therapists utilise a range of therapeutic techniques, which are generally beneficial for injury prevention treatment.
 
On the surface, remedial massage may not seem as relaxing as other forms of massage, but many patients discover the aftermath of treatment and overall improvement is worth it.
 
Let’s take a look at the top 5 benefits of remedial massage.
 

Stress reduction

We all know stress is harmful to our health, and remedial massage has been found to reduce both physical and emotional stress by lowering cortisol levels and raising endorphins, the feel-good hormone. The knock-on effect is a reduction in anxiety and depression, better sleep and concentration, and boosted energy levels. We all need those.
 

Improves circulation

Stimulating the blood supply helps speed up the body’s repair process by making joints more mobile and repairing damaged tissue. Remedial massage helps flush lactic acid from your muscles and get the blood moving through congested areas, helping the body’s natural detox function. An additional benefit to increased circulation is more supple, healthier-looking skin.
 

Boosts your immunity

With a decrease in stress hormones and an increase in feel-good hormones, your body has a chance to recover and your immune system can perform its work unimpeded. Increased circulation in tandem with lymphatic drainage from the massage stimulates the immune system’s effectiveness as it flushes out toxins and recalibrates.
 

Targeted treatment

Targeted treatments allow the therapist to zero in on the area causing pain and subsequent stress to the patient, resulting in an improved quality of life, allowing the individual to perform everyday activities. With regular treatment, chronic pain can be addressed and successfully managed. Individual treatment plans with corrections to problem areas can have a flow-on effect for other areas of the body, improving other joint or postural issues.
 

Reduces muscle tension

Our body operates best when it works in harmony like a machine. Tense muscles can disrupt this harmony and negatively impact our whole body, agitating the nervous system. Muscle tension can be caused by stress, which then causes pain and even more stress. It’s a vicious cycle that can severely impact your quality of life and lead to other issues like headaches, migraines, back and neck issues, and more critical medical issues.
 
Remember, these are only five of the benefits you receive from remedial massage, and there are many more once you delve into it further.
