What is a Remedial Massage?

Remedial massage is for people wanting a more targeted, specific result. It combines techniques including deep tissue, trigger point release and stretching.

The focus will be on a specific area, complaint/injury rather than an all-over body treatment. Your therapist may recommend cupping or dry needling to assist with the treatment.

Before the massage, we complete an assessment to discuss the treatment plan, expected results, and outcome.

What’s involved in a remedial massage treatment?

Remedial massage therapists are trained in multiple techniques to assist in various conditions. After a comprehensive consultation, the therapist will determine how to treat your requirement best and which treatments you require. Depending on your symptoms, the remedial massage therapist will develop a personalised plan that may include a combination of deep tissue massage, dry needling, Kinesio taping myofascial release, and trigger point therapy.

Are there any specific conditions that require Remedial Massage?

Remedial massage is effective in treating a wide range of conditions, including:

  • Neck pain
  • Back pain
  • Tension Headache
  • Jaw pain
  • Frozen shoulder

How does Remedial Massage relieve pain?

Those looking to avoid or manage an injury or a particular ailment or restriction in movement can benefit from this massage therapy. This form of massage relieves pain, reduces tension and finally strengthens the area.

Remedial massage therapists can effectively locate and treat damaged muscles to accelerate your body’s natural healing process. They require extensive massage training and have a thorough knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and pathology.

Remedial massage traces the cause of your discomfort back to its source, finding the underlying cause.
