what can remedial massage treat

Remedial massage therapy is different from other forms of massage as it offers many additional benefits including but not limited to heightening mental alertness, boosting immunity, correcting postural issues, enhancing sports performance and improving skin tone. Instead of focusing solely on temporary pain relief, remedial massage therapists concentrate on tracing and addressing the root cause of the musculoskeletal dysfunction; thus preventing further injury and maintaining optimal health. In Australia and many other countries of the world, remedial massage has experienced huge growth and popularity in recent years, thanks to the many therapeutic benefits it offers. Many people are still unaware of the short and long-term benefits it can offer, so, what can remedial massage treat. Listed below are some of the common conditions that can be effectively treated with remedial massage:

  • tension headaches
  • shoulder injuries
  • fibromyalgia
  • sports injuries
  • stress
  • anxiety
  • back pain
  • neck pain
  • RSI
  • carpal tunnel
  • disk bulge
  • shin splints
  • frozen shoulder
  • plantar fasciitis
  • restless legs

Remedial massage is different than relaxation massage or deep tissue massage since it demands active participation from the patient. Participation will be required in the assessment, treatment, and post-treatment phase in order to achieve the desired results. Remedial massage is more focused on identifying the underlying cause of the musculoskeletal dysfunction and then working on the specific fascia, ligaments, tendons, and muscles to lessen the pain, improve mobility, lessen tension or a combination. It is particularly good for those who experience muscular pain or stiffness on an on-going basis such as office workers, elderly, elite and amateur athletes and any busy individuals.
