The basis of Remedial Massage is that the ligaments, tendons, and muscles of the body all respond to manual touch. A large percentage of discomfort that is felt by you, can be coming from these soft tissues. This type of massage will focus on a specific injury or problem area as well as any contributing muscles.
What Does A Therapist Do?
A Remedial Massage therapist uses their knowledge of anatomy and physiology, combined with manual therapy techniques to help you. With the use of deep tissue massage and Trigger Point Therapy (amongst other techniques), the deep and shallow layers of muscle and connective tissue will be relaxed.
Who Can Benefits From a Treatment?
This massage is recommended for those experiencing chronic muscular pain and discomfort. The Therapist will take some time to assess your presenting complaint, identifying the areas affected and attempting to find the origin of the pain. (At times referral for imaging or other tests may be necessary). A treatment plan will then be designed, explained and consent requested before any treatment commences.
Did You Know?
Remedial Massage is not just a Deep Tissue Relaxation Massage.
A Remedial massage will focus just on a specific area and those muscles associated with it.
A Relaxation Massage is about just that; ‘Relaxation.’ It does not involve in depth testing and assessing; just a gentle, enjoyable and stress relieving massage.
Combining Chiropractic and Remedial massage treatments can often have a synergistic benefit. In other words they both become more effective.
