Remedial Massage

Remedial massage is often focused on removing adhesions (knots). The adhesions block the flow of blood and energy, imparing the delivery of nutrients and oxygen and the removal of wastes. Nerve endings in the area get irritated by the toxins, causing pain.

When one muscle or muscle group hurts, other muscles take over their job. This muscular imbalance often leads to skeletal imbalance, which in turn can cause joint problems and eventually lead to arthritis.

Eliminating an adhesion sometimes requires certain patience and cooperation from a patient. However, a therapist always works within the patient's pain tolerance and comfort level.
