A remedial massage treatment differs from a regular massage because it can incorporate several different techniques. The techniques used are based on the clients’ needs and their response to the particular technique.
Treatments will focus on the cause of the pain and dysfunction. Often the pain experienced will be a referral pain from another area of the body therefore an effective treatment requires a skilled therapist with experience and knowledge to locate these areas.
A remedial massage can be tailored for each clients’ pain threshold. Some clients with chronic pain may need a gentler session than an athlete. You are always encouraged to provide feedback during a session if you wish to work with your therapist in making the most of your session.
As with many more natural therapies, your remedial massage therapist works to find the actual cause of your discomfort, and their therapy aims to eliminate the root cause, not just the symptoms.
They will use a series of manual manipulation that may or may not be firm and forceful. Deep tissue massage itself is not remedial massage, but remedial massage might involve deep tissue massage. It may also involve passive stretching. One of the aims of treatment is to stimulate the body to do its own healing.
Remedial massage therapy involves a range of techniques and styles, such as deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy and sports massage, which focus on treating specific injuries and repairing damage.
Why choose remedial massage therapy?
Remedial massage therapy is a very therapeutic form of massage. When muscles are knotted, tense or damaged, remedial massage therapy offers a holistic method of healing using gentle, strong and deep or shallow movements.
Remedial massage works to treat specific injuries or muscular dysfunction using a range of techniques to locate and repair the damaged muscle, joint, tendon or ligament. This in turn will work to re-balance the body and contribute to optimal health and wellness. It is also beneficial in pain management by relieving tension and spasm in the muscles.
What to expect
Remedial massage therapy will often involve an assessment of the client in order to isolate the muscles that are functioning incorrectly and identify muscle and postural imbalances.
A remedial massage may involve the use of oil, which is applied directly to the skin. The use of oil ensures the muscles associated with the disorder are deeply penetrated. It also means the individual will be unclothed during the massage. Stiffness, aching and occasionally bruising may occur following treatment however, this is short lived and to be expected due to the deep effect of the release techniques used which also increases the blood supply to damaged nerves and, in turn, assist in the recovery and repair of injuries.
Remedial massage therapy helps reduce stiffness and swelling and also works to relax and strengthen the muscles.
Remedial massage therapy works to improve joint mobility and contribute to an overall feeling of relaxation.
