A massage a day keeps the headaches away!

Migraines and other types of headaches are painful and can at its worst ruin one’s day causing light sensitivity, dizziness and nausea. There are almost two million migraine sufferers in Australia, making it a predominant problem amongst the population. However, did you know that massage treatment could help decrease and stop the occurrence of migraine and headaches?

Recent studies by the Tehran University of Medical Science and the University of Miami School of Medicine, amongst others, have found that massage treatment can reduce the occurrence of migraine, as well as reduce the headache pain intensity of the patients. Since massage treatment relaxes muscles and improves blood flow, the pressure and tension held in the muscles in the neck and head will decrease.

Regular, ongoing massage treatment can help prevent and reduce the number of headaches and stress that comes with it. Book in for a session with one of Fremantle Remedial Massage Clinic’s talented massage therapists and specify your aches and pains to get the optimum treatment for your individual needs.

What is Remedial Massage?

Before booking a massage session with one of the therapists at Fremantle Remedial Massage Clinic – you might wonder what remedial massage actually is. Did you for instance know that it is one of the most popular forms of massage therapy as it addresses the aches, pains and injuries many of us seem to fall prey to at some stage in our lives?

Remedial massage is a varied therapy and combines a number of different techniques such as massage, trigger points, myofascial release and lymphatic drainage techniques to work on damaged or sore muscles, soft tissue or joints.

How You Will be Assessed

First of all, the massage therapist you have choosen will ask you about your problem areas and discuss how long you have been affected. They will look and listen for clues in order to provide an effective treatment plan, looking for the original biomechanical dysfunction, and so healing the cause of the disorder, as well as the symptoms.

If you have an injury or painful point that needs work, don’t expect the therapist to only work on that body part – for instance if you have a sore thigh muscle, you may favour the other leg imperceptibly to avoid causing more pain to the original affected area, thus causing strain on the other leg. Also, you may be feeling pain in one part of the body that is “referred”, meaning that isn’t the part that is in fact injured. Remedial massage aims to correct chronic imbalances.

The techniques may be gentle or firm, deep or shallow, depending on your preference and what the issue requires.

What Can be Treated?

Remedial massage can help stimulate blood supply to damaged muscles and joints, which can help remove toxins that have built up. Massage is very relaxing and relieves stress and so is good for the nervous system.

Remedial massage can address issues such as:

  • Muscle tightness and pain
  • Arthritis
  • Frozen shoulder
  • Tennis elbow
  • Whiplash
  • Neck and back pain
  • Scoliosis
  • Headaches
  • Sports injuries

Remedial massage can holistically address the whole body to ease out tension, and repair damage to muscles, joints, tendons and soft tissue.
