What is the Difference Between Remedial and Relaxation Massage?

Have you ever wanted a massage but couldn’t decide whether you need a remedial massage or only a refreshing and stress-reducing relaxation session? Well here’s an explanation to help you to determine what you want precisely!

What is Relaxation Massage?

A relaxation massage helps to de-stress and loosen up your body and is excellent for those who have had a hard working week or feel like treating themselves to some TLC! The treatment consists of flowing strokes, kneading and gentle manipulations of the muscles performed at your chosen pressure. It is a pain-free way to relax both your muscles and your mind.

What is a Remedial Massage?

If you have particular muscle tension or chronic pain, a remedial massage may be for you. Your remedial massage therapist will assess where you need treatment and what may be causing your pain. They’ll perform some tests to identify which muscles give you trouble and tailor a treatment plan to suit. The treatment itself may involve deep tissue work for short periods, but the results are worth it!

Remedial massage may quickly ease conditions such as sciatica, carpal tunnel, stiff necks, headaches, sports injuries and many more complaints can be relieved with a remedial treatment.
