What is Remedial Massage?
Remedial massage is a hands on treatment that stimulates blood flow to the injured area, to promote healing and is great for instant pain relief from a variety of muscular conditions. Remedial massage therapists are trained in anatomy, so they can restore balance within the muscles and tendons of the body. We aim to increase blood flow to the injured area which triggers a self-healing process. Massaging tension out of the muscles helps improve conditions such as headaches, neck pain, knee pain, lower back pain and sciatic pain.
Our Remedial Massage Therapists use a range of techniques when treating pain and injuries, including sports massage, active release technique, kinesio or sports taping, dry needling, stretching and mobilisation and soft tissue therapy.
Unlike relaxation massage which may help you unwind or temporarily alleviate an ache, remedial massage is a targeted and in-depth treatment that is good for long-standing issues which might be more chronic in nature.

What Can I Expect from a Remedial Massage?
Our Remedial Massage Therapist will discuss your injury trigger and medical history to assess your condition. The pressure is firm during remedial massage, so as to alleviate the source of pain and work specific muscles and tension areas. Stretching, Dry Needling and Active Release Techniques may be used but we will develop a personalised treatment plan targeting your particular condition.
Patients often report immediate relief following a remedial massage, but you can also feel sore for a few days. Your therapist will advise you on the frequency of your appointments to promote complete healing. Remedial massage is also a useful preventative measure to reduce the risk of future pain and injury by keeping the body functioning well. If necessary, we will refer to you another specialist or get further diagnosis from one of our Osteopaths.
