REMEDIAL MASSAGE

When muscles and tendons become damaged or impaired, knotted, tense, or immobile, Remedial Massage provides a healing treatment that can be gentle or strong, deep or shallow. Remedial Massage holistically treats the whole body and traces the discomfort as far as possible back to the original cause, healing both the cause of the disorder as well as the symptoms.
