Remedial massage is a type of therapeutic massage that aims to alleviate pain and discomfort in the body by targeting specific areas of tension or dysfunction. Typically it is used to treat musculoskeletal conditions such as back pain, neck pain, headaches, and sports injuries.
The goal is to identify the root cause of the pain or dysfunction and address it directly. This involves a detailed assessment of your posture, movement patterns, and any other factors that may be contributing to the problem. Following this, our therapist will then use a range of techniques to release tension and restore balance to the affected areas.
Some of the techniques used include:
Remedial massage works by increasing blood flow to the affected areas, which helps to promote healing and reduce pain. It also helps to release tension in the muscles and connective tissue, which can improve range of motion and flexibility.
There can be many benefits including:
Our therapist has extensive experience working with a variety of people and conditions. This includes helping athletes (from professionals to the weekend warriors), office workers, tradies and pain during pregnancy.
