Remedial Massage is a form of therapeutic Bodywork that aims to restore soft tissue function by reversing or stopping environmental damage. This practice assesses, treats (remediates), manages and prevents soft tissue dysfunction through the manual manipulation of muscles and joints, aiming to restore function, reduce pain and discomfort, and build a solid foundation against further damage. A single Remedial session may include a combination of techniques depending on your needs, preferences, physical condition, and specific concerns. These include:
Myofascial Release – Fascia is a band or sheet of connective tissue beneath the skin that attaches, stabilises, encloses, and separates muscles and other internal organs. This massage technique involves slow, steady, passive movements to guide the limbs and joints along the path of least resistance until they unwind, or superficial strokes, applying direct pressure to gently stretch and elongate the fascia.
Deep Tissue Massage – Deep Tissue massage is a form of direct Myofascial Release. Firm pressure is applied using the forearms, knuckles or elbows to slowly sink through the surface layers of muscle and work directly on the restricted connective tissues.
Trigger Point Therapy – Trigger points are hypersensitive spots (often mistakenly referred to as ‘knots’) found within the muscles and fascia. A key characteristic of trigger points is pain that refers to areas of the body unrelated to the location of the trigger point itself. Trigger Point Therapy utilises firm static pressure to compress and ‘unwind’ these hypersensitive points within the muscle.
Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) – The lymphatic system is part of the body’s immune system, it is a network of tissues and organs that transport fluid to and from the tissues and helps rid the body of toxins, waste and other unwanted materials. MLD focuses on assisting the lymphatic system in transporting fluid and removing waste products from the body. This style of massage does not require any oil, and utilises gentle superficial stroking movements, applying no more than 8 grams of pressure.
Remedial Massage assists in the treatment and management of chronic joint and muscular conditions, aids injury, postpartum or post-surgery rehabilitation and recovery, helps the body to establish a foundation against future injuries, releases tension, eases aches and pains, improves mental clarity, sleep quality, and circulation, detoxifies the body, reduces swelling in the tissues, strengthens immunity and encourages the body’s own natural healing processes, boosts physical performance by helping the muscles prepare for and recover from exertion, increases flexibility and range of motion, balances the nervous system, thereby stabilising mood and calming the Mind, Body and Spirit, reconnects you with your body and its needs, and gives you the opportunity to truly focus on yourself.
