Remedial massage is designed to assess and treat myofascial pain, injuries, and dysfunction affecting movement and mobility.
Remedial massage can treat a wide range of conditions, including:
- Sporting and occupational injuries
- Stiffness and pain associated with poor posture
- Joint and vertebrae pain
- Headaches and migraines
- Knee, leg, and foot pain (including sprains)
- Neck, back, and shoulder pain (acute or chronic)
- Acute and chronic stiff and painful neck
- Tendonitis, RSI, carpal tunnel, or tennis/golfer’s elbow
- Pre/post natal complaints and soreness
- Pain associated with stress or tensions
- Rehabilitation for injuries and/or illness
Remedial massage differs from relaxation massage because it is designed to be a “remedy” for pain, discomfort, and problems with joint mobility. Remedial massage, restores the normal integrity of muscles, tendons, ligaments, and fascia.
The treatment and techniques used are tailored to each individual and their specific needs.
Pressure during a remedial massage can also be much deeper and more intense than a relaxation massage.
