What is it & What does it include?
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 causing pain or have been injured. Remedial 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 can be uncomfortable but, should never be to a point of excruciating.
For those with injuries or sore shoulders, neck or lower back, a remedial would work better.
