Remedial massage therapy plays an important role in injury prevention, pain reduction and improved overall performance and functionality when used in conjunction with low level laser therapy.
Massaging problem areas is known to increase blood flow to the area, increase mobility of the joints and aid in repairing of the tissues. The therapist will aim to balance the length, tone and tension of muscles and tendons, which restores the correct position of the bones, increases blood flow and helps heal injuries.
