1. How can Advanced Remedial Massage help me?

Advanced Remedial Massage is effective in the treatment of neck & shoulder tension so often experienced by office workers and computer users...also people who drive long distances as part of their job. It is also effective in the management of Arthritic conditions such as hand stiffness and reduced joint motion.

2. How does Advanced Remedial Massage Therapy differ from other types of massage?

Andrew Brown - Westwood Therapies

Advanced Remedial Massage is a deep form of 'oil massage' that works directly onto the skin; unlike the Hendrickson Method which is normally performed with the recipient fully clothed.

An Advanced Remedial Massage Therapist is trained to a high level over a longer period of time in postural assessment, palpation, range of motion assessment, soft tissue manipulation, joint mobilization, remedial home exercise provision etc. This is not a spa / holistic massage treatment.

Advanced Remedial Massage treatment follows a goal oriented approach to resolve the presenting problem utlising a short term and long term treatment plan.

This is typically a very deep massage combined with joint mobilisation; some aspects can be applied lightly...for example around the hands, neck and face.

3. Advanced Remedial Massage treatment has many benefits...

Andrew Brown - Westwood Therapies
  • Improves Posture...helping people who work at computers for a living to manage neck, shoulder pain, headaches and tension.
  • Promotes improved musculoskeletal equilibrium...helping arthritic sufferers to manage pain.
  • Reduction of pain and dysfunction in muscle and joints...helping people with chronic back problems.

4. What happens during a session?

Andrew Brown - Westwood Therapies

First Remedial Massage Appointment is normally 60 minutes and is split into 3 sections: Consultation, Assessment, Treatment. For more complex issues the consultation and assessment may take longer and a 90 minute appointment is recommended.

Treatments are performed either on a massage couch or in a chair. Treatment normally begins with relaxation massage techniques from where Remedial Massage techniques are employed as required. I like to make my remedial massage treatments as relaxing and as enjoyable as possible ...as well as being highly effective... using warm blankets, warm aromatherapy oils, relaxing music, heated spa massage couch etc.

5. How many sessions will I need & how long are treatments?

Appointments are normally 45 minutes (£35), longer or shorter appointments are available ... 30 minutes £30, 45 minutes £35, 60 minutes £45, 90 minutes £60, 2 hours £80.

6. Therapy Room

I work from home and have created a bright, uplifting therapy studio. The massage couch I use is a fully electric - height / back rest / knee lift - adjustable thickly padded, extra wide, heated spa couch. Changing facilities are provided in the therapy room which is closed off by screened doors whilst you prepare for your treatment.
