Conditions treated with
Remedial Massage Therapy

Treatment of muscle pain

Therapeutic Massage Therapy is an invaluable tool to help your body heal itself from many different conditions that are caused by your muscles or other soft tissues.
Although it can’t help with everything, the advantages of professional remedial massage are generally underestimated.

Because the body is made up of so many muscles, the potential for aches, pains, tension, stiffness or dysfunction in the muscles is huge.

Even though you may not necessarily feel that your pain comes from your muscles - because it appears to come from your spine, joints, tendons, bones or organs – your muscles may indeed be the prime source of your discomfort . [1]

Knowing more about the problem of referred muscle pain also can help you to understand your body better.
