Massage | The Benefits

All of our massage services provide a great way to calm the nerves and relax, remedial massage however has many more benefits than just relaxation. Remedial massage is a manual therapy that focuses on treating pain and dysfunction but can also be used as a preventative option for ongoing care.

“Remedial massage is a holistic massage therapy that involves the assessment, analysis, and treatment of musculoskeletal dysfunctions and injuries.”

Remedial massage is different from many other forms of manual therapy because it uses a systematic approach to treat various muscle and soft tissue issues. Remedial massage therapists identify the underlying cause of the muscular issue first and then treat the affected areas including muscles, tendons, fascia, and ligaments to reduce pain and tension and improve flexibility and mobility.

Managing & Treating Many Different Muscular Disorders
Entegra Health Melbourne

Many massage services provide a generic treatment protocol, however with remedial massage we tailor our treatment for you. After an initial assessment, our remedial massage therapist decides on an individualised treatment plan to deal with the presenting issue/s. Our treatment can help to resolve present issues and can also be used as a maintenance treatment to reduce the risk of the issue recurring.

Muscular Recovery | Massage Melbourne

The main benefit of remedial massage is that it helps speed up our bodies own recovery process. This is really important for active individuals as it can reduce downtime and keep you active for longer. Remedial massage therapists work on the soft tissues that have become restricted, knotted, or damaged as a result of strenuous exercise or sporting activity. They use specialised manual techniques to promote healing and minimise recovery time.

Increased Flexibility and Joint Mobility With Massage

Individuals that experience chronic conditions such as lower back pain, shoulder issues, sciatica and arthritis can get a lot of relief from remedial massage. Our remedial massage therapists use gentle mobilisation and stretching techniques to release stiff muscles, improve circulation, and ease the tension. This not only increases joint mobility and improves flexibility; it also helps reduce pain and stiffness.

Our modern sedentary lifestyle is believed to the be the major cause of physical pain and many other muscular and psychological issues that affect many people these days. We use a number of techniques that lengthen restricted muscles to relieve tension, balance and realign the body, and improve the posture.

Stress Reduction | Massage Melbourne

For many modern workers, remedial massage can provide a substantial reduction in stress, fatigue and anxiety. This in turn allows you to get a better quality of sleep which improves mental focus and concentration and enables you to think clearer, make better decisions, and become more productive.

Muscle Pain Treatment – Remedial Massage Melbourne

The adult human body has over 600 muscles, so it shouldn’t surprise anyone that muscular aches and pains are part of life. According to the latest findings, Australia has one of the highest levels of muscle pain. A recent study showed that nearly 97% of Aussies suffer from some form of muscular pain, with an astonishing 68% of them experiencing muscular pain at least weekly. Chronic muscular pain not only affects social life, but it also decreases work performance. Luckily effective muscle pain treatments are readily available; there are several treatment options available to help ease or alleviate muscle pain, including simple home remedies, OTC medications, physical therapies, remedial massage, and acupuncture.

Before we shed further light on remedial massage as a preferred treatment option for all sorts of muscular pains and aches, it’s helpful to first understand the main causes and symptoms of muscle pain.

Causes of Muscle Pain | Remedial Massage Melbourne

The medical term for muscular pain is “myalgia”; which is a combination of two Greek words i.e. “myos” which means “muscle” and “algos” which means “pain”. Although having sore muscles after an intense workout, participating in sports, lifting heavy objects, or working for long hours is quite normal, often such pain and soreness gradually gets better within a day or two. Sometimes however muscle pain and soreness can linger, under such circumstances, it is a good idea to consult your family doctor or visit a remedial massage therapist.

Muscle pain can happen in any muscle of the body and can have different symptoms depending on the root cause of the problem. The pain can either be localised (confined to a specific muscle or muscle group) or systemic (felt all over the body). Here is a list of some causes of muscular aches and pains:

  • muscle sprains and strains
  • muscle cramp or spasms
  • stress or depression
  • dehydration
  • nutritional deficiencies
  • sleep deficiencies
  • infection
  • medication
  • diseases
  • sports injuries

Common Symptoms of Muscle Pain | Remedial Massage Melbourne

Although pain or soreness is the main symptom of muscle ache, some people may also experience the following symptoms:

If muscle pain becomes severe and it is important to seek immediate medical attention.

Muscle Pain Treatment – Remedial Massage Melbourne

The best way to start muscle pain treatment is to first go through proper diagnosis to find out the root cause of the pain. Your doctor may take your detailed medical history and conduct a thorough physical exam to come to a conclusion. If required, your doctor may suggest blood tests or imaging tests (such as X-ray, MRI, or CT scan) in order to confirm a diagnosis. Once a proper diagnosis has been carried out, your doctor may suggest a suitable treatment plan for you. Depending on the severity and underlying cause of muscle pain, your doctor may suggest any of the following remedies:

    • Medications (such as NSAIDs, topical analgesics, heat rubs, etc.)
    • Home remedies (such as RICE)
    • Exercises (such as stretching and strengthening exercises)
    • Relaxation (such as Yoga)
    • Remedial massage
    • TENS

If you are experiencing musculoskeletal pain, remedial massage can be very effective and can help you regain much – if not all – of your mobility.
