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.

Benefits of remedial massage 

Improve your musculoskeletal & general health
Reduced stress and tension

Massage in general can help to alleviate tension.  We sometimes hold residual stress from work or life in general which manifests as tension in soft tissue.  Improper movement patterns can also add to stress in parts of your structure.  Our aim is to help even out the tension in your body proportionally.

Can help heal repair soft tissue

Massage can help speed up the recovery of damaged soft tissue from certain types or trauma or overuse.  By encouraging blood flow to get nutrient rich blood to the affected region.   

Release of feel good chemicals & reduction of stress hormones

Touch has powerful effect from infancy and throughout our lifespan.  The body releases oxytocin also know as the cuddle hormone which gives a nurturing, warm and fuzzy feeling.

There are many additional benefits such as reducing anxiety and depression, stimulation of lymphatic circulation, improve joint mobility to name a few more.

Stay on top of your game with tailored care for your sport or activity.  Move better, prevent injury, recover faster.

What is the difference between deep tissue &  sports massage?

Deep tissue massage would fall under a technique that is used during a sports massage or many other therapeutic bodywork.  Sports massage therapy considers the sport or activity an individual performs and specifically caters to that.  

What is involved in a sports massage?

Similar to remedial massage, there is the assessment, testing, and information gathering components if there is an injury, movement restriction or pain. 

Specific problem areas are targeted to improve soft tissue function.  Sometimes it could just consist of a routine rub down to promote circulation after an activity or as general maintenance.   

 

Benefits of a sports massage 

  • Reduces heart rate.
  • Lowers blood pressure.
  • Reduces recovery time after an injury or strenuous activity.
  • Help with injury rehabilitation.
  • Lowers anxiety
  • Elevates mood.
  • Increases blood flow throughout the body, bringing vital oxygen and nutrients all over.
