If you've never had a Remedial Massage before and are not sure what it is or how it can help you then you have come to the right place.
Remedial Massage is a clinical and hands-on treatment approach to soft tissue therapy dysfunction or damage. The technique uses gentle massages of the muscle tissue and because it works deeper than a regular relaxing massage, the effects are usually deeper and longer lasting. A typical massage therapy session lasts about 20 – 30 minutes depending on the extent of impairment or dysfunction and the amount of treatment your body can withstand at one time.
Too little treatment can be ineffective but too much treatment can be just as ineffective also. A typical treatment does not cover the entire body because all the structural imbalances may not be addressed in one session. Also your body needs time to adjust and return to normal nerve firing, flexibility and function at its own pace. Extended session which can last between 30 – 45 minutes may be recommended if there are extensive problem areas.
Remedial massage is used to prevent as well as heal injuries but ideally remedial massage therapy is used as a preventative form of treatment that works by removing pain and dysfunction, relieving stress and creating balance in the body, generally promoting a sense of deep relaxation and well-being. However, if you have an injury remedial massage therapy is extremely beneficial as it helps in treating a wide variety of muscle and skeletal conditions such as back, neck and shoulder pain, muscle sprains, repetitive strain injuries, whiplash, sciatica, frozen shoulder, tension type headaches and migraines.
Trigger points, which are tiny contractions of the muscle fibres, can cause symptoms such as pain, muscle stiffness, weakness, nausea and dizziness. These trigger points feel like knots. The therapist will feel for these knots (which range in size from a pinhead to a pea), lying along a taut band of muscle fibres. They may be caused by accidents, falls, strains, postural stress and muscle over-use and can lie latent within the muscle indefinitely but they can also be activated by very little stress or strain. They are extremely painful when pressed and are easily treated once found.
The massage therapist will be able to trace the pain or injury back to the original area of damage, and use specialised massage techniques to break down the scar tissue in a way that encourages mobility. Massage will also encourage and support the body's own healing and repair mechanisms.
