Remedial Massage Therapy
What it is:
Remedial massage therapy utilises evidence based, scientifically proven techniques to treat a wide variety of musculo-skeletal injuries, soft tissue dysfunctions, and to manage muscular pain.
How it works:
Remedial massage therapy focuses on identifying and treating the cause of the problem, instead of just temporarily alleviating its symptoms.
Treatments are designed to suit individual requirements and comfort levels, and aim to restore normal range of movement and muscle function throughout the body. Techniques used in remedial massage therapy include deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy, myofascial release, cross fibre friction, cupping, and functional fascial taping.
To fast track recovery, remedial massage is often complemented with take home exercises and stretches, to be completed outside of clinic appointments.
Ongoing management plans are provided to ensure that recovery and relief from pain is maintained.
