|About||Fully qualified and fully insured remedial massage practitioner|
My name is Jamie Risato I am a fully qualified and a fully insured remedial massage practitioner. I studied my diploma in remedial massage therapy at the Northern Institute of Massage (www.nim.uk) in Bury, Greater Manchester. I also have diplomas in sport and exercise sciences, personal training, nutrition and exercise referral. These qualifications provide me with a great insight into the human body's anatomy and physiology, performance and recovery.
For thousands of years massage has been used for its therapeutic and healing effects on the body. While it has not always been understood why massage worked, the positive results were recognised and appreciated.

Modern advances in science and medicine have brought with them a better understanding of how and why massage works. A better understanding of the biomechanics of the body has also brought important advances in massage itself. This increased knowledge has allowed for the refinement of existing techniques and has allowed development of new approaches.
Today, massage has again entered the medical mainstream and is seen by many as an important addition to qualified medical treatment.
