Remedial massage is a deep tissue massage which is used to locate and repair damage and also to assist the body’s natural ability to heal after injury. The massage is applied directly to intact skin using a lubricating medium.
The Massage therapist uses their knowledge of anatomy and physiology to determine the best treatment for the patient. The therapist uses patient feedback to pinpoint the damaged tissues and to regulate pressure. Tenderness in areas being treated is an indicator or where treatment of muscles and tendons will be undertaken.
Remedial massage is designed to increase blood and lymph flow, particularly to injured areas of the body. Most patients will feel a difference after one session. A recent injury will recover quicker than a long term injury.
Passive stretching moves are also utilized.
Sessions usually take 45 minutes to an hour, depending on the whether the practitioner will just address a specific area or give a whole body massage. As oil is used, it is necessary for the patient to be unclothed for the treatment.
