Remedial Muscle Pain Massage Therapy

Has it ever occurred to you that your pain or other discomforts could come from your muscles?

Some of you might be aware of the extent of tension that is harboured in your muscles.

When you touch your skin with a little bit of pressure you may notice that it feels hard underneath. It might even hurt when you press into a muscle.

However, most people are not aware of their muscles except when they don't do what they want them to do or when they feel sore after overuse, usually from straining exercise or repetitive movements. It is no wonder that we often unwittingly misuse our muscles.

Most people know that they should exercise more to strengthen their muscles, but apart from that they know very little about their muscular system.

Why muscle health is important

The skeletal muscles make up a large part of your body mass (about 42% in men and 36% in women) and are therefore very important for overall wellbeing.

Life's demands and pressures affect our muscular system in multiple ways.

Listed below are a few examples of this:

  • We may do work which necessitates that we sit or stand for long periods.

  • We may have to perform repetitive movements while working.

  • We may feel stressed, depressed or anxious, and consequently tense our muscles under the burdens of everyday life.

  • Sometimes playing a sport or musical instrument stresses and overloads specific muscles.

  • We could have had a fall or an accident, even decades earlier, which damaged muscle tissue and still causes pain today.

  • Often one side of the body is more tense than the other, and consequently the stronger side has to compensate for the weaker one. Soon it gets overworked, as well.

These heavy demands and harmful habits can create huge burdens on your muscular system. And as you know, muscle pain can spoil your life, making it more miserable than it needs to be.

Therapeutic Remedial Massage makes you feel better

You can't necessarily change your life's circumstances, but you can take action against unwanted and persistent pain.

A professionally executed remedial massage deeply relaxes your muscles and entire nervous system so that you benefit for days afterwards.

This often results in the lessening of pain, which in turn helps you to sleep and feel better. The overall benefit will be that you cope better with your demanding job/ life once again.
