Remedial Massage

If you’re looking for relief from stress, tension, and anxiety, as well as to improve your circulation and general well-being, then look no further than Progressive Chiropractic Berwick’s remedial massage service! 

What is remedial massage therapy?

Remedial massage therapy is a popular and useful form of complementary management to address problems arising from muscles and other soft tissue injuries. It is a form of manual therapy that includes applying pressure, kneading or manipulating a person’s muscles and other soft tissues to help improve a person’s wellbeing or health.

What can your remedial massage therapists help with?

One of the immediate benefits of massage is the feeling of relaxation and calm. Studies have found that the levels of stress hormones such as adrenalin, cortisol and norepinephrine are reduced following a remedial massage.

Remedial massage therapy may also help to:

  • reduce muscle tension
  • induce relaxation
  • improve circulation
  • stimulate the lymphatic system
  • reduce stress hormones
  • reduce anxiety
  • improve recovery of soft tissue injuries
  • increase joint mobility and flexibility
