Benefits of regular massage therapy
Regular remedial massage therapy is beneficial for maintaining the body's wellness, relieving pain, and working towards optimal health.
Remedial massage uses specific techniques to stretch and lengthen connective tissue and muscles. Remedial massage reduces pain and discomfort, bringing wellness and a sense of relaxation and mobility to the client.
In remedial massage therapy, the best practitioners are trained to perform a treatment using not only observation and assessment skills but also tactile feeling hands skills to direct the individual treatment for a client. Your massage therapist will give you an individualized massage that addresses your needs.

What is the difference between a remedial massage and deep tissue massage therapy?
Remedial massage is a type of massage where the therapist will assess and identify which areas of the body require treatment. Once the therapist locates and understands the problem causing the pain and injury, the therapist will perform a targeted massage on the area. Remedial massage is not diagnostic, but it is tailored with the aim to treat muscles that are damaged, knotted, tense, or immobile to help your body return to normal. The massage targets specific parts of the body and uses different techniques to locate muscles that require rehabilitation.
On the other hand, deep tissue massage uses very firm pressure and flowing strokes that can be a little uncomfortable. This pressure is used to target deep muscles, help break up scar tissue / adhesions, and relieve tension from connective tissues. The massage generally uses friction or stripping of the muscle, which can help chronic muscle pain.

What to expect from a remedial massage?
If it's your first time, your massage therapist will begin by asking you questions about why you're getting a massage. They might ask you some questions about your lifestyle, current pain, and health history. This will give your massage therapist a better understanding of your current condition. After getting the necessary information, your massage therapist will leave the room and ask you to undress - (keeping your undergarments on), - lay down on a table, and cover yourself with towels for your privacy and to keep you warm. When you're ready, your massage therapist will knock before they come back in. They use oil to smoothly massage your skin and to help them assess your muscles before focusing on parts of your body that require treatment. Once your therapist establishes the location of the knotted or tense muscle, they will start to release the muscle. They might use some stretching techniques to lengthen different body parts. They will ask you every now and then during the massage about the level of pressure. You can always tell your therapist if you're not comfortable with the massage pressure - they can always adjust it based on your tolerance.
How often should you get a massages from a remedial therapist ?
As we all know, everyone is different. There will be no specific answer to fit everyone's needs. We suggest that you base the frequency of your massages on your lifestyle and daily life activities. If you have a very active lifestyle and exercise frequently, you might benefit from a weekly or fortnightly massage appointment to help prevent muscles from getting tense or knotted If your daily activities do not require you to move much, generally, a maintenance massage is recommended within 4-8 weeks. You can also ask your Allied health practitioner or massage therapist to give you advice based on what they think will be beneficial for your current condition.
