Remedial Massage aims to provide relief from aches and pains and decreases healing time of injury.
Remedial massage is a focused style of massage treatment. Clients who want to improve their posture, suffering from an acute or chronic condition or simply in pain from muscle soreness, tightness or injury should consider this type of massage.
A range of techniques may be used to assess the client’s presenting issue and explained to them what could be creating the symptoms. From there, specific massage techniques are applied to the muscles of concern in order to address the source of the situation.
The pressure of the technique and pain experienced whilst receiving treatment varies but will be tailored so that the client experiences minimal discomfort. Please be sure to give this feedback to the therapist regarding any discomfort.
Remedial massage is aimed at providing lasting benefits to subside or eliminate symptoms of a presenting complaint. Once this is addressed, a maintenance plan is usually recommended to prevent the issue from recurring.
How often someone should receive a remedial massage depends on a few factors; the extent of the condition, how long the previous remedial massage provided relief before the symptoms come back, if at all, and also if they have a self-care regime in place. All this should be discussed with the massage therapist.
