WHAT IS REMEDIAL MASSAGE?
For centuries, massage has been used as a form of medical treatment to help the body and the mind. It is still being used in many cultures as an integral part of healthcare. Over the years, people have perfected the art of massage and now we see many different forms or specialisations being used for different purposes. Remedial massage is one form of massage that deals with the specific musculoskeletal conditions of the body.
What Is Remedial Massage – The Definition
“Remedial massage is a specialised form of therapeutic massage which deals with the identification of problem areas in soft tissues, including not only muscles, but also joints, tendons, fascia, and ligaments and choosing the best treatment plan aimed at restoring the body to a pain-free state.”
Remedial massage is a natural approach that starts with a comprehensive assessment of the potential root cause of the pain/injury/dysfunction and ends at supporting the body’s own repair mechanism to alleviate the pain and address the root cause of the musculoskeletal dysfunction.
In addition to effectively treating the musculoskeletal dysfunctions, remedial massage also plays an important role in preventing further injury thereby maintaining optimal performance and health. It is the safest treatment option for most presenting pain conditions.
Whether the underlying cause of your pain/injury/dysfunction is poor posture, pregnancy, sports, a demanding lifestyle or job, or a medical condition, remedial massage offers a range of highly effective, proven and holistic techniques to relieve pain, restore movement, rehabilitate an injury and release stress.
