Remedial Massage Explained

Remedial massage is probably one of the more common types of massages available here on the Gold Coast.

Sometimes, you just want a massage, but if you don’t know what type of massage you need, you could end up doing a bit of damage to yourself by not understanding what you are getting, especially if you are just having a one-off massage.

So, What is Remedial Massage?

Remedial massage is a holistic approach to helping ease the pain when your muscles get all knotted, tense or damaged. Remedial massage will alleviate the pain through treatment that is gentle, strong, deep or shallow, depending on your needs.

You should always only work with qualified massage therapists. They have the proper training and understanding of your physiology and just how much pressure to apply when your muscles are screaming in pain. A great massage therapist will identify the original bio-mechanical dysfunction that is causing the issues, so not only healing the disorder, but the symptoms as well.

Your massage therapist will utilise several techniques that have been specifically designed to locate and repair the damage to your muscles, tendons and joints. Remedial massage therapy is designed to support and speed up the repair process within your body’s own mechanisms. Your massage therapist should always use a cream or oil when massage your skin to ensure proper friction is maintained and the muscles that are hurt are deeply penetrated. If they understand what they are doing, they will also apply some passive joint stretching as well.
