What Is A Remedial Massage Therapist?

The word “remedial” is derived from the Latin term “remedium”, meaning “cure, medicine”. The term “remedial massage” otherwise known as “medical massage” or “sports massage” refers to the systematic assessment and treatment of soft tissue structures (muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues) of the body with an aim to relieve sore muscles, improve posture and flexibility and prevent injury.

While remedial massage can be used independently as a therapeutic massage for the prevention and management of soft tissue injuries, some health professionals effectively use it for the purpose of relaxing the body and mind and for enhancing athletic performance.

What Can A Remedial Massage Therapist Help With?

From releasing tension to relieving chronic pain and increasing mobility, the list of benefits associated with regular remedial massage is a long one. Some of the major issues that can be effectively treated with remedial massage are as under:

  • Postural issues/injuries
  • Sports injuries
  • Joint pain and discomfort
  • Chronic pain from repeated injuries
  • Arthritis
  • Fibromyalgia
  • Lower back pain
  • Tension headaches
  • Frozen shoulder

WHAT IS REMEDIAL MASSAGE

There is simply no better way to relax and unwind your creaky muscles than to go for a quick massage session. However, there is one problem: how to find out which type of massage is most suitable for your body and your needs. The decision whether you are better off getting a quick Swedish massage or you need a more intense remedial massage can be very confusing especially when you have no clue of the different forms of massages available and their potential benefits. Since remedial massage is considered to be one of the most useful styles of massage currently available, so, what is a remedial massage therapist? What is it good for? What are some of the main benefits of remedial massage? How is it different from other forms of massages?

What Are Some Of The Main Benefits Of Remedial Massage?

Remedial massage is particularly beneficial in eliminating or reducing pain and restoring normal muscle/joint function; however, besides these, there are many other good reasons for making regular remedial massage an essential part of your daily life. Let us have a look at some of the main benefits that are associated with regular remedial massage:

  • improves alertness and attention
  • increases blood flow and oxygen, particularly to the affected/treated area
  • stimulates the lymphatic system
  • strengthens body’s natural immune system
  • improves athletic performance and reduces the risk of sports injury
  • eases insomnia
  • improves posture
  • improves flexibility and range of motion

How Is It Different From Other Forms Of Massages?

In order to completely understand the basic healing philosophy behind remedial massage, it is important to find out how does it differ from other forms of massages. Now that you have a good understanding of what a remedial massage therapist does, it is time to highlight these differences.

While the basic purpose and aim of any type of massage is to relax the body and mind, remedial massage is different from other forms of massages as it combines assessment with treatment. A detailed assessment is important as it helps the therapist to address the root cause of the problem and offer permanent relief. Therefore, before starting a remedial massage session, your remedial massage therapist will have a detailed discussion about your medical history and may also perform some postural, range of motion, and some other specialised tests to completely understand the issue before offering appropriate treatment plan.
