Remedial, Pregnancy and Baby Massage Hervey Bay

Remedial massage aims to treat muscles that are damaged, knotted, tense or immobile. It is useful for a number of problems that affect the muscles, tendons and bones and can address a number of other health problems.

Remedial massage is used to locate and repair damaged areas of the body and speed up the body’s own healing processes. The pressure applied in this healing treatment can either be strong and deep or gentle and shallow, depending on the problem.

Problems with the muscles can trigger or radiate pain to other parts of the body. Remedial massage aims to trace the original reason for the pain, tackling both the cause of the problem and the symptoms.

Remedial massage can be used to help people with:

  • Neck, shoulder or back pain
  • Preventing injuries
  • Headaches
  • Sports or other injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Chronic pain
  • Fatigue
  • Anxiety or depression
