What is Remedial Massage?
Remedial massage is an ancient holistic healing practice that combines a comprehensive assessment of physiological problems and bespoke treatment of muscles, tendons, connective tissues and ligaments to enable a natural rehabilitation of the body, alleviation of pain and repair of injuries.
A certified and experienced remedial massage therapist can take your healing experience way beyond the realms of physiological repair and rejuvenation and enable you to achieve mental and spiritual well being too. In doing so, the professional must make a series of physical assessments such as functional muscle testing, motion testing and special orthopedic examinations in order to draw out a customized treatment plan that works for you and your body!
Difference between Remedial and ‘Other Standard Massage’ Types
At some point of time in our lives, all of us have indulged in some ‘standard massage’ or the other to give our body some TLC – whether a Thai massage to stimulate the acupuncture points in the body, a relaxing Swedish massage to release tension or a lavish aromatherapy massage to feel pampered.
Remedial massage, as the name suggests, is used to treat sprains, strains, bruises, broken bones as well as any injury where your skin is intact. Remedial massages are generally deep tissue massages that remove blockages, damaged cells, scarred tissues and adhesions remaining post injury. They quicken your body’s recovery time and facilitate holistic healing by improving the flow of blood and lymph and the release of toxins from injured areas. They also make your body more flexible and help you feel fit, fresh and ready to go!
Some of the most common conditions that can be completely cured with a few sessions of remedial massage include:
- Stiff necks
- Back aches
- Carpal tunnels
- Sports injuries
- Pain and swelling
- Circulatory problems
- Stress and anxiety
- Asthma and breathing problems
So, it won’t be an exaggeration to say that a remedial massage offers combined benefits of all forms of massages – whether you’re looking to de-stress, release tension and anxiety, repair an injury, alleviate chronic joint or muscular pain or calm your body and mind after long work hours.
