Remedial massage therapy is a therapy that involves an in-depth knowledge of the mechanics of body movement along with an understanding of the structure and behaviour of the muscles and other soft tissues.
It is often used for sports related injuries or injuries sustained as a result of prolonged postural overload in jobs involving sitting at a desk.
Treatment can include a range of techniques and is personalised to the individual with the aim of resolving the underlying issue rather than simply treating the symptoms.
Another element of remedial massage and possibly one of the most important, is the educational aspect. Treatment includes instruction on stretches and exercises designed to aid the recovery and resolution of muscular issues and promote strength, flexibility, and posture.
