Remedial Massage Therapy

What Is Remedial Massage Therapy?

 

Remedial Massage is the application of a range of therapeutic techniques, used to treat muscles that are knotted, tense, stiff, or damaged. The remedial therapist will assess and identify which areas of the body require treatment, and use a range of massage-based techniques to optimise muscle function.

 

What Does A Remedial Massage Therapist Do?

 

A Remedial Massage therapist uses systematic assessment and treatment of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body, to assist in pain, injury and rehabilitation. To understand how to treat patients, a remedial therapist must know anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology.

 

How Does Remedial Therapy Work?

 

Remedial Therapy is simply the manipulation of the soft tissues of the body—the muscles, tendons and ligaments. And also to identify physical and bio-mechanical problems.

The therapist palpates the patient’s body to determine the condition of the tissues and the source of any pain, and suggests the correct form of remedial treatment based on patient’s analysis.

A combination of soft tissue release techniques, sports massage,

trigger point therapy, stretching, joint mobilisation, and myofascial release.

 

What Can Remedial Massage Therapy Help With?

  • General and local aches, pains and stiffness

  • Chronic pain   

  • Headaches

  • Anxiety/stress

  • Pre and Post Sports

  • Injury rehab

  • Poor Mobility

Myotherapy (Known as Musculoskeletal Therapy) 

What Is Myotherapy?

Myotherapy, also known as Musculoskeletal Therapy is a physical therapy designed to prevent, treat, manage and rehabilitate musculoskeletal pain and associated pathologies. It also helps improve muscle and joint function and performance.

What Is A Myotherapist?

A Myotherapist is a primary care allied health professional who provide evidence-informed assessment, treatment and rehabilitation for a wide range of musculoskeletal pain and associated conditions.

It includes a range of manual therapies to ease a patient’s pain, including soft tissue therapy, joint mobilisation, myofascial cupping therapy, dry needling, corrective and rehabilitative exercise, taping, TENS machines and prescriptive advice on muscle and pain management.

Physiokey Therapy (SCENAR Device) is performed using a hand held electro-therapy biofeedback device that can be applied to most problem areas which are causing pain to an individual. Electrical impulses are sent from the device which interact with the nerves of the painful region.

 

Physiokey is the latest development in the medical technology field of bio-feedback controlled non-invasive neurostimulation. In numerous studies, the Physiokey has shown significant increase in treatment efficiency, speed, and more importantly, positive patient outcomes.

Dry Needling & Cupping Therapy

Dry needling is a procedure in which a one or more very fine needles are inserted directly into specific areas of sensitive tissues, such as trigger points (muscle fibre contractions/knots) which can be the cause of many acute and chronic aches, pains and dysfunctions.

Dry needling can be used to treat a variety of musculoskeletal

and neurological conditions.

 

Most commonly we use Dry Needling to treat muscular pain

and tension in areas of the body such as the neck, back, shoulders or legs.

 

Other conditions we can effectively treat include:

  • headaches 

  • migraines 

  • carpal tunnel 

  • muscle cramps/spasm

  • jaw pain

Myofascial cupping involves the use of plastic cup and vacuum

that lifts and separates soft tissue, an effect known as negative

or tensional pressure. It can help treat soft tissue conditions

and musculoskeletal tension, pain, and common sporting injuries.

It can also create relaxation by stimulating the parasympathetic

nervous system.

What Our Clients Say

I've been seeing Ali and Max for nearly 8 years now. As a tennis player and gym junkie, I often experience aches, pains and tightness. I always feel better after a treatment and notice a significant increase in range of movement. They are very passionate about what they do and, when it comes to anatomy and biomechanices, they really know their stuff! As a Personal Trainer with Vitalita Health and Fitness, I refer many clients to Function Therapy as I know they will be in good hands. I highly recommend them!
