What to expect in your Remedial Therapy Massagist Sessions.

Remedial Massage is an allied health service that focuses on using manual therapy and massage techniques to help relieve tension and any aches and pains whether that’s  from an injury or just the movements of everyday life. Our therapist will start with a quick assessment which will include a discussion and some physical examination if necessary and will then design a treatment plan that best suits you. Massage is suitable for anyone trying to rehab from an injury or even just to relax after a long day of work.

What services do the Remedial Therapy Massagist provide?

Massage, in general, is a type of manual therapy which involves working with the soft tissues to release muscle tension and promote relaxation. Remedial massage is a very thorough type of manual therapy that involves the assessment, analysis and ultimately the treatment of bodily dysfunctions, at the muscle, tendons and/or connective tissues (fascia) level. According to Healthdirect Australia, remedial massage can also stimulate the blood supply, make joints more mobile, and help to repair damaged tissues. This therapeutic form of massage uses specific mobilization techniques to restore the normal health and function of the body and eliminate stiffness. It often targets neck and back aches caused by sitting long hours in a high stress work environment and is beneficial in the treatment of chronic pains caused by postural issues and/or injuries.
