Remedial Massage Benefits

The benefits of massage are not a secret. For centuries its soothing techniques have been used for relieving stress and improving general relaxation. But it also has many physiological benefits, including increased fitness levels and faster recovery from sports injuries and sprains.

Remedial massage helps you by improving your circulation. By stimulating your blood supply, it allows toxins in your muscles to be removed. Relaxing your muscles improves joint mobility.

Massage also decreases your body’s cortisol levels which can improve sleep, and decrease your blood pressure and your heart rate. It improves your overall flexibility through the lengthening of your muscle fibres. It can also encourage lower respiratory rate and blood pressure readings and an increase in your range of movement.

City Physio’s remedial massage and sports massage are performed at our city-based physio clinic. Our treatments are claimable on your private health insurance (see private health funds for details). City Physiotherapy offers 1/2 and full-hour sessions in our King William Street location.

Invest in your better self. City Physiotherapy is here to help you, keeping you pain-free and moving well so you can continue to do the things you love without pain and stiffness.
