Remedial massage focuses on assessing and treating specific musculoskeletal conditions and injuries. It is a targeted form of massage therapy that aims to alleviate pain, restore function, and promote overall well-being.
During a remedial massage session, the therapist will conduct a thorough assessment to identify any areas of tension, muscular imbalances, or dysfunction. They will then apply various massage techniques to address these specific issues. These techniques may include deep tissue massage, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, lymphatic drainage, and stretching.
The primary goal of remedial massage is to treat the underlying cause of the musculoskeletal condition or injury. The therapist will work to relieve muscular tension, reduce pain and inflammation, improve blood circulation, and enhance the body’s natural healing processes.
Remedial massage can benefit a wide range of conditions, including back pain, neck and shoulder tension, sports injuries, repetitive strain injuries, headaches, and postural imbalances. It can also be used as a preventive measure to maintain optimal muscle health and prevent future injuries.
