Remedial Massage is the assessment and treatment of the muscles, tendons, ligaments, and connective tissue of the body, and management of muscular conditions, which can cause muscular dysfunction, pain and loss of movement.

Returning normal function to muscles and soft tissue can help you achieve a pain free state, increase strength and flexibility, and allow you to live a happy, active, and healthy lifestyle.

Did you know?

The knots that you feel in your muscles are called ‘trigger points’. They can cause aches, pain, tenderness and referred pain. Remedial Massage Therapists are trained to identify and deactivate trigger points using soft tissue manipulation techniques which include deep tissue massage, def tissue massage, and targeted trigger point release.

What does a Remedial Massage Therapist do?

A Remedial Massage Therapist aims to identify the causes of pain and discomfort. Remedial Massage Therapists employ various soft tissue manipulation techniques, together with other modalities such as deep tissue massage, hot and cold therapies, passive/active muscle stretching, electro-mechanical stimulation and corrective or rehabilitative exercises, to aid in the release of muscle tightness and spasm.

What conditions can be treated with Remedial Massage?

Remedial Massage Therapists treat the cause as well as the symptoms of a wide range of conditions. Some examples of conditions commonly treated by Massage Therapists are:

  • Neck & back pain

What will happen in my Remedial Massage treatment?

Your first Remedial Massage consultation will typically commence with thorough history taking followed by a muscle, joint, and postural assessment. Your Massage Therapist will then advise the best treatment plan for you, outlining which techniques may be used and how the treatment will be carried out. 

Having you lie on the treatment table, the Massage Therapist will aim to ease your pain, release muscular and soft tissue tightness and stiffness, and allow you to return to your daily activities moving and feeling better. The treatment will end with various post treatment advice including stretches, heat or ice application, and a recommendation on a follow up treatment.
