Read more about our approach to remedial massage
Remedial Massage is the systemic and scientific manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, and is performed directly upon the skin in a methodical manner for Therapeutic purposes. Skilfully used, Remedial Massage can assist the body in its own healing processes, where disease or injury has occurred in muscles, connective tissue, bones, joints, and internal organs. It can also assist healing through its effect on the psychological condition of the patient, increasing a sense of confidence, well-being and relaxation. Remedial Massage is a technique which is a composite of many other forms of Massage. RM makes use of Passive Movements and Joint Mobilising Techniques, working toward a specific goal in the treatment of the patient, and often working towards a specific and limited body region until that goal is accomplished.

Your first session at AguaDulgent Massage Centre begins with a consultation to determine the most effective therapy to address your needs. A Structural Analysis - which is the Therapists' blue print of your total alignment, and/ or a Kinesthetic Analysis - being a measure of your Range of Movement, is conducted. A specific treatment relevent to your issues is devised. To enhance the Therapy and to allow the patient to further self correct anomolies, Applied Exercise Therapy becomes an ongoing "homework" . After all it is a remedy that we are seeking and no quick fix magic bullet remedy in the guise of a drug. Due to patients' needs in this area, Wata Yoga classes held in the clinics' Therapy Pool, with special attention to correcting alignment issues.
