Remedial Massage Therapy in Byron Bay

What is Remedial Massage?

Remedial massage includes a systematic assessment and treatment of the muscles and connective tissue. It aims to give the patient a specific therapeutic benefit, rather than a general therapeutic benefit such as pure relaxation. It often gets mixed up with deep tissue massage, as the benefits are similar.  Remedial Massage has a different function as it targets specific muscles that are overused causing misalignment in the body.

Why might I need a Remedial Massage?

Remedial Massage is ideal for sportspeople and those carrying injuries to assist in the rehabilitation process. Therapists will asses and muscle test the clients’ specific problems before applying techniques to release the overused muscles that bring the body back to alignment.

You will benefit from this style of massage if you suffer from:

  • general muscular and skeletal problems;
  • muscle tightness and decreased range of movement;
  • muscle pains;
  • arthritis;
  • frozen shoulder;
  • tennis elbow;
  • whiplash, or limited mobility of the neck;
  • sports injuries, strains, and spasms;
  • headaches; and
  • scoliosis.
