What is Remedial Massage?
This type of treatment is primarily designed for those who experience muscle tension or chronic pain that may be affecting their movement and mobility. The idea is to apply specialised pressure and manipulation to restore and maintain the normal integrity of the soft tissue structure — that is, your muscles tendons, ligaments and fascia.
During the treatment, your therapist will examine your body and assess where your discomfort stems from and what may be causing it. Herein, your therapist will perform some simple, non-invasive tests to ascertain which muscles are giving you trouble, subsequently tailoring a treatment plan to suit. The actual massage typically involves a mixed range of techniques that revolve around applying pressure and working your deep tissue for targeted relief.
At Alternative Mythotherapy, we have patients visit our Brunswick clinic from Coburg, Northcote, Thornbury and surrounding suburbs for remedial massage. Many of these patients suffer from conditions such as:
- Carpal tunnel
- Stiff neck
- Sports injuries
Our highly skilled and knowledgeable therapists can create a treatment plan designed to alleviate the pain and discomfort accompanied by these conditions.
What’s the Difference Between Remedial Massage and Relaxation Massage?
It’s important to know what kind of treatment you’re booking in for. Remedial massage is specifically designed as a preventative, corrective or rehabilitative therapy, usually prescribed as ongoing care to manage a patient’s injuries, muscular aches or pains, or postural imbalances. On the other hand, relaxation massage is designed to help patients de-stress and loosen up their bodies, and typically involves flowing strokes and kneading of the muscles performed at their chosen pressure.
