Good, licensed remedial massage therapists will combine energetic and therapeutic massage together to relieve stress, body pains and tension to help the body recover from stress, strain and injury. Remedial massage Brisbane specialties will most likely include deep tissue and intuitive bodywork. Some examples of our extensive massage treatments can be found as follows: Deep tissue is the true remedial massage and works to access deep muscular tissues and to release damaged tendons. Always within the tolerance of the client, our goal is to treat damaged areas without causing harm. Muscle fibres, fascia and connective tissues are focussed on and worked intensely to achieve pain relief and treat the cause, not just the symptom. We always recommend that clients hydrate well both before and after a deep tissue massage session. This promotes the removal of lactic acid from the muscles and subsequently reduces the post massage soreness. We also provide myofascial release which is an effective hands-on technique which uses sustained pressure to areas of the body with myofascial restriction. Our goal is to eliminate pain and restore motion and by engaging the fascial system of connective tissues, this form of massage has demonstrated great success. We are also experts in Thai massage, also known as Thai yoga massage. Thai massage therapists use the hands, knees, legs and feet to both pummel and stretch you using sequence of yoga-like stretches. Usually delivered on a padded floor mat or massage table, oil isn’t normally applied, so comfortable clothing may be worn. A gentle, hands-on method, Craniosacral therapy involves the evaluation and enhancement the functioning of a physiological body system. Known as the craniosacral system, it comprises the membranes and cerebrospinal fluid surrounding the brain and spinal cord. Our therapists use soft touch to release restrictions in the craniosacral system, so improving the central nervous system functions. Also a huge complement to the body's natural healing processes, this form of massage is increasingly being used as a preventive health measure. Known for its ability to increase the body’s resistance to disease, it is used for a wide range of medical problems, typically linked to pain and dysfunction. General body stress causes tissues to tighten, so restricting the optimal performance of the brain and spinal cord. Relieving these tensions enhances the body's ability to self-correct so that it can function better. Unsurprisingly, this form of remedial massage is used to treat a variety of symptoms including headaches, TMJ, anxiety, depression, chronic fatigue, neck and back pain, and much more. Our touch techniques will release restrictions in the soft tissues to relieve pain and dysfunction. Our final form of remedial massage is intuitive bodywork. We use this to address energetic imbalances in the physical and/or energetic body. Being closely connected in our bodies, any imbalance between the two can affect the physical body.
