A remedial massage is the ideal choice if you are suffering acute or chronic pain that is being caused by a problem in a muscle, tendon, ligament or the bodies connective tissues. The focus of at least the first session will be to alleviate the pain in the short term as well as identify likely causes of it. Remedial massage is also very beneficial to assist with rehabilitation and injury management.
While a remedial massage session may involve some deep tissue work, this type of massage is more than just a hard, firm massage. It is also more than a feel-good massage – although you may well enjoy the session and it is hoped that you do. It involves the assessment and treatment of the issue; a treatment plan and documented treatment notes. These notes are an important part of the process and a requirement of all professional massage therapist’s associations.
Health fund Rebates are available for remedial massage.
