What is Remedial Massage?

A remedial massage is a hands-on therapy that aims to restore balance and health by treating pain and discomfort caused by damaged or immobile muscles. By assessing the body, the massage therapist can determine which soft tissue techniques are the most appropriate for the client. A therapist who specialises in this style of massage uses a wide range of techniques, including deep tissue manipulation, trigger point therapy, stretching techniques, joint manipulation, and myofascial release, among others.
