How can I benefit from a Remedial Massage?
Remedial massage also known as therapeutic massage, has been shown to benefit those who suffer from muscular discomfort and pain. Areas where massage can help include low back, hip and knee, shoulders and neck.
Some of the symptoms that are helped by remedial massage include, sciatica, headaches or migraines from tension, limited range of movement in shoulders and neck, fibromyalgia, muscle aches, tennis elbow, carpal syndrome, bursitis and more.
Many studies have shown that therapeutic massage helps to release tension in the fascia that covers the muscles of the body, restricting movement and causing tension headaches.
Therapeutic massage may also benefit you when you are feeling stressed and are in need of some good self care. It relaxes the nervous system, reduces mental drowsiness and improves circulation of the entire system.
Having a regular remedial massage will help you maintain optimal physical health and keep your body and mind balanced, ensuring you move through life with ease and joy.
Remedial Vs Deep Tissue
Many people are confused between a Remedial massage and a deep tissue massage.
Aren’t they the same?
Short answer: No
Remedial Massage works on a specific area that may be causing pain or have been injured. Remedial massage also includes a consultation and assessment of the range of motion, pain levels if any, muscle movement, current health status and client feedback. A treatment plan will be included to ascertain the best course of treatment for the condition/injury as is a requirement by most health insurance companies.
Most remedial therapists include a number of different techniques and some have deeper knowledge and additional specialist techniques than others, learnt and acquired throughout their career and since graduating with the basics.
As each clients needs are unique the treatment techniques used will be selected based on the expertise and knowledge base of the clinician.
Deep tissue is different in that it is full body and releases tension on a deep level, targeting the deeper layer of muscles. It can often be quite painful and may not always be relaxing. Remedial massage can be uncomfortable but, should never be to a point of excruciating.
For those with injuries or sore shoulders, neck or lower back pain, a remedial massage would work better.
