Remedial massage therapy is effective in restoring full function to soft tissue (muscles, tendons and ligaments) and reducing pain/inflammation caused by acute injuries or long-term repetitive movements. Remedial massage is generally a deep tissue treatment that pinpoints the area of dysfunction and applies adequate pressure to bring about a change in the soft-tissue. Which results in greater flexibility and reduction in pain or discomfort. It is the perfect way to relieve tension that develops from sporting activities, work – either performing physical labour or operating a computer, or simply the stress of life.
What can it treat?
Remedial massage can treat any musculoskeletal problem that is creating symptoms such as headache, backache, shoulder pain/tension, frozen shoulder or neck pain.
How will it feel?
Remedial massage is generally at a deeper pressure to release tension that is present in muscles, ligaments and tendons. Your therapist will discuss the depth of pressure that is appropriate for you at the beginning of the session and during the treatment to ensure your level of comfort is maintained.
What benefits might I receive?
The aim of Remedial massage is to restore full function to the area causing concern. Therefore, following a Remedial Massage, it is typical for you to notice an improvement in the area that has been the focus of the treatment. This may be greater flexibility, or a reduction in pain or discomfort.
How many treatments will I need?
This will be determined by the severity of the injury/dysfunction, and how long you have had the musculoskeletal problem. Your therapist will discuss your treatment plan with you so that you achieve optimum results. It may also be suggested that you make some lifestyle changes to support your treatments. This may include increasing your water intake and incorporating stretches into your daily routine.
