What is remedial massage?
Consultation | Assessment | Treatment | Reassessment
Remedial massage or remedial therapy is a clinical approach to addressing soft tissue dysfunction that may present as musculoskeletal pain or movement restriction.
Through assessment and testing, the aim is to find out why these symptoms are occurring and then tackle them and their cause through remedial techniques such as deep tissue massage, joint mobilisation, triggerpoint therapy, and myofascial techniques to name some.
A session usually includes a discussion of what you’re experiencing, some history, postural assessment, testing to put some pieces of the puzzle together. Then we come up with a game plan and treatment can begin.
