He also teaches exercise and stretches to help you maintain a healthy body in between massage sessions.

Does Remedial Massage Hurt?

It is always our goal to keep pain levels within your comfort range. It is very important that you let Anthony know if the pain is too much during the treatment. Although remedial massage can cause discomfort, patients normally describe it as “good pain”, with results that often produce long term relief. Some patients also experience pain or discomfort for a day or two after treatment, depending on the depth of the massage.

Always tell us before  the treatment if you:

  • Are or think you could be pregnant.
  • Have a medical condition, or are currently receiving treatment from another practitioner.
  • Taking prescribed medication.
  • Have a recent injury.
  • Have allergies – especially skin related allergies.
  • Have broken skin or sores.
