Remedial Massage has no identity problem. It was first accepted to be scientific in the 19th century. Although it drifted out of fashion with the incessant drive towards technology it is available in some G.P. surgeries, hospitals, health centres, massage schools, sports centres and beauty clinics.

Massage cannot lay claim to cure illness but it should not be dismissed as a luxury either. It makes you feel good, outside and in. Gentle massage is painless and effective, treating people for a wide variety of complaints including asthma, arthritis, backache, joint and muscle sprains, headaches, cramp, high blood pressure, insomnia and rheumatism.

It works by increasing the blood circulation to the area. It enhances the flow of lymph, the body’s natural weapon against injury. It is based on a philosophy that the body always wants to be well and so encourages natural healing.
