Remedial Massage

remedial-massageRemedial Massage is a holistic treatment and involves the use of massage and a wide range of diagnostic techniques to treat a condition. When muscles become knotted and tense or damaged, remedial massage provides a healing treatment that can be gentle or strong, deep or shallow. The therapy helps to get the blood flowing to injured tissues to speed up the repair process. Remedial massage can also be used for relaxation and general wellbeing. The therapy has both short and long-term effects on the body.

In addition to remedial massage, we also offer pregnancy massage and baby massage. At Acurepoint Health Clinic, we only employ qualified remedial massage therapists.

Deep Tissue involves manipulation of the deep layers of tissue in the body, including the fascia and other supportive tissue that make up the muscles and joints.
