What is Remedial Massage Therapy?

Remedial massage is a hands-on therapy technique that is designed to promote the healing of injuries while correcting the balance between your muscles, bones, and nervous system. This technique is used mostly to treat certain medical conditions like scoliosis, frozen shoulder, thoracic outlet syndrome, wry neck, whiplash, and more.

This massage method can be used for athletes and non-athletes alike. Whether you suffered a sports-related injury, or you’re dealing with nagging pain in your neck and shoulders from long hours in the office, remedial massage is the best way to release pain, increase range of motion, and get back to life.

Benefits of Remedial Massage Therapy

The therapists at Revive Australia are fully skilled at manipulating the soft tissue of your body to:

  • Relieve muscle tension, pain, and soreness
  • Increase circulation
  • Increase flexibility
  • Relieve stress
  • Correct postural issues
  • And more!

From the head and neck down to your knees and feet, there are numerous problems that arise if your body isn’t looked after and maintained properly. Just like your car or computer needs occasional service, your body needs a tune-up occasionally, too. We are the ones you come and see for maintenance, tune-up, and services that keep your body moving like a well-oiled machine.

How it Works

Remedial massage is the culmination of several proven massage techniques that are targeted at restoring the soft tissue of the body. These techniques include:

Myofascial Release: This is a safe and effective massage technique that involves applying gentle, sustained pressure on the Myofascial connective tissue to eliminate pain and restore range of motion.

Trigger Point Therapy: This method uses concentrated pressure application on trigger points to break up pain and spasms. Trigger points are tight, contracted nodules in the fibers of the muscle. Once the contraction is released, the muscle canopen up and the pain is released.

Deep Tissue: This technique utilizes slow, deep strokes of pressure on areas of muscle tension. This allows the muscles to be freed, which increases range of motion and restores the muscle’s suppleness.

Since we’re performing this massage as a therapy, it might notalways feel pleasant and relaxing. We might need to use Deep Tissue techniques to get to deeper layers of the muscle or stretch a hip, neck or back to help bring it back to full range of motion or release pressure on a pinched nerve, and it may cause temporary discomfort. However, the end game is pain release, full range of motion, and eliminated or improved symptoms.

We might also use massager vibrating guns, or cupping or needling depending on an area – some of those might also be uncomfortable or leave temporary marks. Keep in mind that it’s all for the purpose of achieving best results faster.
