Used independently or in conjunction with physiotherapy, remedial massage supports the recovery and rehabilitation of illnesses or injuries resulting from stress, strain and chronic conditions, as well as aiding those who are training for sporting events or practices.
Remedial massage focuses on the manipulation of soft and deep tissue release. It works by lengthening and strengthening the muscle fibres to increase elasticity in the muscle groups and remove the build-up of lactic acid and other toxins. It also increases the range of movement and flexibility in the muscles, ligaments, tendons and joints.
iGoPhysio offers a full remedial massage and complementary health service at its North London Clinic. Treatment commences with an initial consultation, and includes a variety of techniques, including trigger pointing and passive stretching, with special focus on realigning the skeletal system.
If you prefer something a little more gentle or relaxing, treatment can be tailored to work primarily on soft tissue release to induce a state of relaxation. This can be combined with the use of aromatherapy oils to treat a series of stress-related ailments or illnesses.
