Find Out How Remedial Massage Can Ease Chronic Pain

Remedial Massage

Remedial massage can help. The connective tissue that wraps most structures within your body is referred to as the fascia. Deep fascial massage, or remedial massage, is a soft tissue therapy that relaxes contracted muscles and improves blood supply and lymphatic circulation.

The Difference Between Remedial Massage And Relaxation Massage

At Adaptive Myotherapy, remedial massage is one of our specialties. Unlike relaxation massage, which helps to de-stress and loosen up your body, remedial massage is a more clinical approach that deals with particular muscle tension or chronic pain, and is especially effective for conditions such as sciatica, carpal tunnel, stiff necks, headaches and sports injuries.

Remedial Massage At Adaptive Myotherapy

Remedial massage can be deep or shallow, gentle or strong depending on your condition and needs. At your appointment, our myotherapist will assess where you need treatment, the source of your pain and what is causing it. She will tailor an individualised treatment plan that aims to eliminate the source of your problem as well as the symptoms, and this might involve other treatment approaches such as dry needling, cupping and deep fascial manipulation as well. You may also be advised on exercise, pain management, load management and lifestyle or activity modification.

Our Qualifications

Similar to physiotherapists, osteopaths and chiropractors, myotherapists have their own distinct qualifications, specifically the BHSc (Clinical Myotherapy), BHSc (Myotherapy) and AdvDip (Myotherapy), which qualify practitioners to undertake evidence based assessment, treatment and rehabilitation of patients experiencing musculoskeletal pain and associated conditions.
