Remedial Massage

Remedial massage is the systematic assessment and treatment of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body to assist in rehabilitation, pain and injury management.

What is remedial massage?

Remedial massage treatment is designed to optimise muscle and/or soft tissue function. Massage also promotes the flow of blood and lymph, particularly to injured areas and may reduce scar tissue and adhesions.

Remedial massage is a highly effective technique for numerous muscular conditions and may assist with the reduction of pain and discomfort. Regular massage assists in maintaining health and wellbeing

Massage therapists may use their hands or forearms to manually affect tendons, ligaments and connective tissue.
