Remedial Massage Near You
A Remedial or Deep Tissue Massage could be all that you need to ease the tension in your shoulders and make it feel as though the weight of the world has been lifted.
Remedial Massage Is a clinically-oriented healthcare option that helps alleviate the discomfort associated with every day and occupational stresses, muscular over-use and many pain conditions. Our massage therapists are qualified to perform everything from a relaxation massage to deep tissue or sports massage, and will discuss with you what it is that you feel will give you the best results, and take the weight of the world off of your shoulders.
Dry Needling Therapy Malvern
An adjunct to Osteopathy and Remedial Massage, dry needling will release those stubborn knots in tight muscles to give you a relief from pain and tension in your body. Dry needling uses acupuncture-type needles to release myofascial trigger points with the focus on releasing muscular tension and pain, therefore improving joint mobility.
The similarity between these two treatment styles stops at the needles utilised. Acupuncture, as a generalisation, tends to be a more superficial style of treatment with the intention of treating energy (“Qi”) imbalances in the body. It is believed that these Qi blockages can be restored by correctly placing needles along energy channels called meridians. On the other hand, Dry needling treatment treats the neuromuscular system affecting muscle tightness, joint mobility and symptoms of pain and irritability.
