In order to come up with an effective treatment plan, your therapist at Brisbane Massage Therapists will take a detailed history with you in order to access your situation and also brief you on the benefits of the remedial massage and what to expect during and after the treatment. As a patient, it is your responsibility to provide all the information needed by your massage therapist. The more your massage therapist knows about you, your ailment, your medical history, and your health goals, the better treatment plan he/she will be able to suggest for you. Don’t be shy and try to ask as many questions as you can. Our therapists will be happy to answer all your questions and address all your concerns.
Depending on the outcomes of a detailed physical examination and thorough discussion, the therapist may utilise any one or multiple massage techniques during the treatment session:
What Is Remedial Massage?
For centuries, massage has been used as a form of medical treatment to help the body and the mind. It is still being used in many cultures as an integral part of healthcare. Over the years, people have perfected the art of massage and now we see many different forms or specialisations being used for different purposes. Remedial massage is one form of massage that deals with the specific musculoskeletal conditions of the body.
What to Expect from a Session
Remedial massage is a specialised type of massage that is designed for patients suffering from injured muscles, tendons, ligaments, and other soft tissues. It is different than a simple relaxation massage, so you can expect a lot more than just a sit or lie down rub during your remedial massage session. Here is an overview of what to expect during a session at remedial massage Brisbane.
“Remedial massage is a specialised form of therapeutic massage which deals with the identification of problem areas in soft tissues, including not only muscles, but also joints, tendons, fascia, and ligaments and choosing the best treatment plan aimed at restoring the body to a pain-free state.”
Remedial massage is a natural approach that starts with a comprehensive assessment of the potential root cause of the pain/injury/dysfunction and ends at supporting the body’s own repair mechanism to alleviate the pain and address the root cause of the musculoskeletal dysfunction.
In addition to effectively treating the musculoskeletal dysfunctions, remedial massage also plays an important role in preventing further injury thereby maintaining optimal performance and health. It is the safest treatment option for most presenting pain conditions.
Whether the underlying cause of your pain/injury/dysfunction is poor posture, pregnancy, sports, a demanding lifestyle or job, or a medical condition, remedial massage offers a range of highly effective, proven and holistic techniques to relieve pain, restore movement, rehabilitate an injury and release stress.
