Remedial Massage Remedial Massage assists in rehabilitation, and in managing pain and injury by systematically assessing and treating muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissue (fascia) in affected areas.

Remedial Massage aims at treating a specific area of your body that needs rehabilitating.

The practice of this form of massage goes way on back to the 1700’s.  In those days remedial therapists were known as ‘rubbers’.  Rubbers had little training, they were simply known in the village for being intuitives with a ‘handy’ knack for musculoskeletal healing.  Simple techniques aside, so successful were these ‘rubbing’ sorts that local surgeons would hire them out to help with patient rehab.

What is Remedial Massage?

Remedial Massage has come a long way since.  Today its healing help is scientifically backed and more on point than ever.  Remedial Massage assists in rehabilitation, and in managing pain and injury by systematically assessing and treating muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissue (fascia) in affected areas.

Your therapist will of course be keen as a bean to help fix your area of pain and injury.  How she starts off though may surprise you some because it usually involves a thorough study of your state. 

What your therapist knows well is that pain in one place, can very possibly have its cause stemming from quite a different place.

Because of this, she’ll want to understand your medical history, test your reflexes, your range of motion – and get a sense for which (and how many) muscles are being activated in response to stimulus from surrounding motor neurons. 

She’ll also take a look at your posture, checking for imbalances you might have when sitting, standing – in the course of working and how you generally hold your frame.

Your therapist will dig pretty deep into these details so she can determine your best possible route to healing.  By assessing your condition to the degree of detail she does, means the treatment plan she tailors will be perfectly mapped for you.

Remedial massage can help if you have a case or history of:

  • Repetitive Strain Injury (RSI)
  • Carpel Tunnel Syndrome
  • Trauma from Falls
  • Dislocations
  • Muscle tears
  • Ruptures
  • Tendonitis

While none of these conditions are a picnic to put up with, the good news is Remedial Massage can help your healing along like a song, and it attracts health fund rebates too!

Did you know?

62% of the persons with musculoskeletal disorders report some degree of limitation on activity. Carpal tunnel syndrome results in the highest number of days lost among all work related injuries.

Remember: Drink lots of water after having a massage

After your massage it’s quite normal to experience a level of tenderness or stiffness in your muscles and joints.  Make sure you drink plenty of water to flush your tissues of cellular waste that’s been freed up in response to your massage.

What the medical community has to say:

Remedial massage has been recognised by the medical community as being exceptionally helpful for people that suffer from pain due to an injury or general wear-and-tear. In Australia, it's regarded as a viable treatment available in your health fund’s extras cover.

We personally assess every therapist to ensure they can provide the highest quality massage for you.  In particular we choose therapists who can listen to you and craft a massage to suit for your needs. We want you to have the best massage experience possible that’s why we go to such length in hand selecting your therapist.

If its less than 4 hours I hope you understand we had to keep that appointment with the therapist for you, turning away other clients, and no refund is possible.
