REMEDIAL MASSAGE Remedial massage therapists often use a range of techniques including deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy and sports massage, but also engage in using general relaxing massage techniques to assist a person in improving wellness. HOW WILL I BENEFIT FROM A MASSAGE Massage is well known to have a wealth of health benefits such as aiding with relaxation, improving blood pressure, pain relief, assisting in mood improvement, stress and depression reduction and increasing the feeling of good health and general wellbeing. Below are findings from research into the benefits of massage: CHRONIC FATIGUE SYNDROME Immediately following massage therapy, depressed mood, anxiety and stress hormone (cortisol) levels were reduced. Following 10 days of massage therapy, fatigue related symptoms, particularly anxiety and somatic symptoms, were reduced, as were depression, difficulty sleeping and pain. Stress hormone (cortisol) also decreased and dopamine increased. BY Field, T et al. 1997.
