Introducing Zaid Remedial Massage Therapy

Remedial massage therapy plays an important role in injury prevention, pain reduction and improved overall performance and functionality when used in conjunction with Chiropractic or on its own.

  • Massage therapy targets muscles, tendons, ligaments and joint capsules to balance the length, tone and tension of opposing muscles which restores the correct positioning of joints which may be contributing to pain and dysfunction.
  • Massaging problem areas is known to increase blood flow to the area, increase mobility of the joints and aid in repairing of the tissues. The therapist will aim to balance the length, tone and tension of muscles and tendons, which restores the correct position of the bones, increases blood flow and helps heal injuries.
“Massage therapy may be able to reduce pain and improve health - ”

Remedial massage therapists like Zaid utilise a number of techniques to manipulate soft tissues including massage, trigger point therapy, muscle energy techniques and stretches. Muscles often radiate pain to other parts of the body in a specific pattern which allows the therapist to identify and treat the cause of the pain as well as accompanying symptoms. Receiving remedial massage therapy in conjunction with your chiropractic appointments can help you manage your musculoskeletal ailments, improve posture, reduce pain and increase functionality.

What can Remedial Massage Therapy assist with?

There are a number of musculoskeletal ailments that may benefit from remedial massage therapy. You may consider remedial massage therapy if you have:

  • Neck pain and shoulder pain
  • Upper back pain or lower back pain
  • Migraines and Headaches
  • Arthritis in any joints including hands and feet
  • Chronic pain
  • Or sporting injuries including cramps, delayed onset muscle soreness or strains

Remedial massage therapy has been shown to have a number of benefits inclusive of:

Improving poor posture leading to reduced neck and back pain

Having poor posture puts extra strain on the muscles which support the neck and back. This causes certain muscles to over-work and results in muscle spasms and neck and back pain. Massage therapy loosens the overworked muscle and allows your body to relax to its pain free and natural alignment.

Improving blood flow to the area

Blood circulation brings damaged muscles the oxygen they need to heal. Remedial massage facilitates blood circulation by moving blood through the congested areas therefore to improve healing and reduce the delayed onset muscle soreness after physical activity.

Improves intensity and frequency of headaches

Studies have suggested that remedial massage may help reducing the intensity and frequency of headaches [1]. This may due to the effect of a relaxation head massage has on the muscles in the neck.

Increases mobility

Massage increases range of movement by increasing tissue elasticity, reducing swelling, decreasing pain and removing waste products from the muscles. Remedial massage aims to restore normal length and flexibility to muscles, allowing the joints they attach around to become more mobile.
