What is Remedial Massage?

Remedial massage is a type of remedial therapy that uses an array of soft tissue techniques and remedial tools to help remediate pain or health issues. Remedial massage therapists find the cause of your problems before treating these areas with various remedial techniques to give you relief from your discomfort. They use techniques such as compression massage, trigger point therapy and myofascial release during treatment sessions.

Practitioners use varying levels of pressure in order to release tension and tightness in the muscles, allowing the body to function better. Remedial massage is most commonly used for the remediation of pain issues, but it can also be used for a wide range of health conditions.
