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.
