Remedial Massage Therapy

 

Remedial massage is a targeted approach to treating musculoskeletal conditions of the body. By using a combination of orthopaedic tests and various soft tissue techniques, remedial massage targets muscles, joints, ligaments and fascia to help you achieve your health and wellness goals. 

 

Remedial massage can help people with a range of different health conditions. While it's often used to help people recover from sporting or other injuries, it's also commonly used to support people in retaining their flexibility and mobility as they age.

How does it work? 

Remedial massage is a hands on-approach to reducing pain and preventing injuries. It works by addressing the structural disfunction of different soft tissues such as build-up of scar tissue and reduced flexibility. This is achieved by using a range of massage and mobility techniques that improve tissue function through friction and movement.  

Structural disfunction can occur over time due to repetitive poor posture from sedentary work and lifestyles as well as past injuries.  

 

Remedial massage is also used by people who want to stay proactive with their health as it is a great way to help prevent musculoskeletal conditions, increase recovery rate and improve overall physical performance. Some common conditions that can be treated with remedial massage include: 

  • Sciatica 

  • Low back pain 

  • Frozen shoulder 

  • Tennis and golfers elbow 

  • Plantar fasciitis  

  • Muscle soreness 

  • Postural issues 

  • Repetitive strain injuries  

  • Sports injuries 

  • Stress related muscle tension 

  • Poor flexibility 

  • Hypertension (high blood pressure) 

  • Joint pain  

  • Headaches

What to expect? 

 To get a better understanding of what you need help with, the massage therapist will start by asking you about your medical history and lifestyle.  

 

All massages treatments are tailored to meet your individual needs. This means that the therapist will use a range of different techniques such as:  

  • Orthopaedic and neural tests 

  • Joint and range of motion tests 

  • Myofascial release techniques 

  • Deep tissue massage 

  • Cross-fiber frictions 

  • Compressions 

  • Trigger point therapy 

  • PNF (proprioceptive neuromuscular facilitation) stretches 

  • Cupping 

  • Joint mobilisation techniques. 

     

Some remedial massage techniques that target muscles deep underneath the skin, can involve intense pressure. Deep tissue massage is one remedial massage technique that can be a little uncomfortable for people who have not experienced this style of massage treatment before. 
 

The massage therapist will check in with you regularly during the treatment to assess your comfort levels. If needed, they can make adjustments throughout the treatment to increase or decrease the pressure of the massage so that you get the best results.
