Remedial Massage restores free movement, eases pain from stiff muscles and improves posture. A variety of massage techniques are used to manipulate muscles and soft tissue in order to break up fibrous tissue, eliminate muscle spasm and loosen stiff joints

Remedial Massage also works on trigger points and uses reflex action. Reflex action means that, for example, a headache may be relieved by treating the neck and shoulders, or tingling in the arms could be stopped by releasing muscles in the chest and back.

Different movement and muscle length tests allow us to find the cause of your symptoms and offer a targeted and effective treatment to stop pain at its source.

Clinical Massage sessions aim to relieve or eliminate your symptoms by treating only the areas responsible for your problem. This means your entire session is allocated to relieving your symptoms without time wasted on irrelevant areas.

Your experience at Align Sports Therapy will be unique and professional. To ensure symptoms area treated in the most effective way possible, your first session will include:

  • Discussing your medical history including injuries or surgery
  • Performing a range of muscle and range-of-motion tests
  • Setting goals and discussing your expectations

Going through your history and performing postural and joint assessments as well as muscle tests takes about 15 minutes, while the remainder of your session is spent restoring your body to ideal function.
