Why Remedial/Deep Tissue Massage

massageThe human body is born to express health. As a result the human body is ‘intelligent’ as such and will adapt to the changing environment so to keep you functional within that environment.

With this fact in mind, unless your muscles are subject to direct trauma (e.g. physically hit), they will tighten up to provide the necessary ‘scaffolding’ for a part of the human frame that is not structurally and functional sound. Muscles do not tighten up because they simply feel like it! They tighten for a very good and functional reason. Does this mean we should not receive massage? Not at all…

Massage is extremely beneficial (a list of all the benefits are below), however we have found a combination of addressing the muscular tightness (massage) and keeping the human structure functional (chiropractic) results in a more effective and lasting outcome. There is strong evidence and research to back this up too.

At Chelsea & Fulham Chiropractic Clinic, we recommend both chiropractic and massage together however whether you prefer one or the other, we are here to serve you.

Benefits of Remedial/Deep Tissue Massage

Remedial/Deep Tissue massage (SRM) has many benefits. In the modern world, where such a large percentage of time is spent sitting, massage can be vital in undoing the negative effects of our lifestyle. Patients who receive regular massage have shown that SRM can help in restoring function by:

  • Improving posture
  • Reducing back pain/general aches & pains
  • Reducing tension headaches
  • Improving mobility
  • Improving circulation
  • Improving injuries

Massage can also benefit patients physiologically. Patients report that treatment has also had the effect of improving the quality of their sleep, reducing their fatigue, and perhaps most importantly, improving their overall state of wellbeing.
