What Does a Remedial Massage Feel Like?

A remedial massage typically involves the application of more pressure than other massages, so there may be some discomfort. This is necessary in order to release tension in the muscles, tendons and ligaments. Your therapist will speak to you before and throughout your session to determine the ideal depth of pressure for you that causes minimal discomfort.

What is the Difference Between Remedial Massage and Relaxation Massage?

The difference between remedial massage and relaxation massage is a combination of things, one of them being the amount of pressure used to carry out the massage. A relaxation massage is designed to loosen up muscles and de-stress the whole body with slow, rhythmic strokes and gentle kneading of the muscles, while a remedial massage generally only focuses on a specific problem area and may require more pressure being applied in order to relieve tension.

What are the Benefits of Remedial Massage?

Getting a remedial massage offers a range of benefits, including:

  • Restoration of full function of a certain muscle, tendon or ligament
  • A general improvement in the area that’s been massaged

How Many Remedial Massage Sessions Are Necessary?

The number of sessions will vary depending on the severity of your injury or dysfunction and how long it’s been present. Your therapist will create a tailored treatment plan for you that takes your specific circumstances into account. Lifestyle changes such as increasing water intake and stretching daily may be recommended to support your treatments.
