Therapeutic Remedial Massage
Remedial Massage is a treatment modality that manipulates the soft tissues of the body including movement for a specific therapeutic effect, rather than a general therapeutic effect. It uses relevant techniques, oils and movements according to the client’s needs and response. Remedial massage techniques as Deep Tissue Technique, Trigger Point Therapy, Soft Tissue Therapy, Joint Mobilisation, PNF Stretching, and Myofascial Release are applied for the relief of tightness in the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue at a pressure level that is both therapeutic and comfortable for our clients.
This leads to the healing process, which begins at the cellular level aiding soft tissues in repairing, restoring functional integrity and adapting back to health.
Remedial massage has main goals to:
- decrease discomfort and pain
- Improve flexibility
The therapist will assess your posture and then recommend a treatment plan. The intellectual reasoning that proceeds, accompanies and follows the treatment is essential. The remedial massage therapist honours professional practice protocols to bring about the specific individualized therapeutic change with clinical reasoning.
Deep tissue technique is designed to relieve severe tension in the muscle and the connective tissue or fascia.
This type of massage focuses on the muscles located below the surface of the top muscles. Deep tissue massage is often recommended for individuals who experience consistent pain, are involved in heavy physical activity (such as athletes), and patients who have sustained a soft tissue physical injury. It is not uncommon for people to have their pain replaced with a new muscle ache for a day or two post deep tissue massage. The sessions are often quite intense as a result of the deliberate, focused work.
