Remedial massage is a great way to get dedicated focus on the areas you most need it. A well-trained remedial massage therapist will know how best to get pain relief and tension release from an injured, overused or painful area…. and getting a rebate from your health fund is a great incentive to take care of yourself!
Muscles and tendons can become tense, painful, damaged or impaired in some other way through accident, injury, illness or incorrect repetitive use… even just from sitting at your desk for long hours. Remedial massage seeks to work back to the root cause of the discomfort to provide pain relief and ongoing benefits.
A remedial massage may include passive stretching to support muscle release and joint mobility.
All massage has some similar benefits:
- Increased blood flow to the affected area
- Calming the nervous system to relieve pain and distress
- Reduction in stress hormones
- Better sleep
- Improving circulation in general
- Stimulating lymphatic drainage
- Providing support to the immune system
- Increased joint mobility
- Improved posture
- Improved skin tone
- Emotional benefits
