If you are looking for a Remedial Massage Therapist in Auckland, The Sanctuary on Richmond can provide you with the right type of service. Remedial massage is a treatment that can be gentle or strong, deep or shallow. When muscles and tendons become damaged, impaired, knotted, tense or immobile, remedial massage provides an effective healing treatment. Remedial massage holistically treats the whole body and traces the discomfort as far as possible back to the original cause, healing both the cause of the disorder as well as the symptoms.
If you haven’t ever experienced a quality remedial massage, we thoroughly recommend it. It is effective for treating conditions and aliments such as plantar fasciitis, jaw pain, tension head aches, frozen shoulder, tennis elbow, as well as muscle spasms and cramps. As well as assisting in the treatment of these conditions, remedial massage also has a positive impact on various systems of your body. These include: The circulatory and lymphatic systems, muscular, endocrine/hormonal, and joints. Remedial massage treatments can be booked for 30, 45, 60, 75 or 90-minute appointments. Generally, 30-minutes is sufficient time to treat one problem area, for example, neck and shoulders. 45-60 minute appointments are sufficient for 2-3 areas, for example, lower back, neck and shoulders, while 60-90 minutes will cover a full body treatment. A new injury or condition can often be resolved within a few treatment sessions. However, a chronic and long standing condition will often require a series of treatments to return the area to its normal function. This will usually include a number of weekly massages and will gradually be spaced out in frequency until a maintenance stage is reached. While everyone’s needs will be a little different depending on your lifestyle, regular remedial massages work best. Ideally, a maintenance massage should be performed on a regular monthly basis to promote mobility and improved function and to stop conditions from becoming problematic and painful.
