REMEDIAL

MASSAGE

Remedial massage is the systematic assessment and treatment of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body to assist in rehabilitation, pain and injury management. It’s performed to create favourable conditions for the body to return to normal health after injury.

 

If you have suffered a moderate injury resulting in structural pain and/or loss of function, then remediation is required to reduce or eliminate pain and restore that function. 

 

Remedial massage is designed to 

  • balance muscle/soft tissue length, tension, tone 

  • return normal joint/capsular/bone position; 

  • increase the blood flow and lymph, particularly in the injured areas, thus removing blockages, damaged cells, scar tissue and adhesions resulting from the site of injury.

 

Remedial Massage is not the same as Relaxation Massage. Although it may promote relaxation, generally the purpose of remedial massage is to improve posture and to manage pain, injury or disability.
