Remedial massage is the treatment and mobilisation of dysfunctional muscles or soft tissue. Techniques are employed to ease muscle pain, help repair damaged tissue and improve the overall wellness of the body.
Muscles in the body can also be referred to as soft tissue, which is a protective layer made up of muscles, tendons, ligaments, nerves and a range of other connective tissues. Deep tissue massage is a common technique that is incorporated in a remedial massage.
This aims to target the deeper layers of the muscles within the soft tissue and the surrounding tissue make-up where damage has occurred.
At Healthy Backs Chiropractic Clinic, our remedial massage therapy sessions can include the following techniques:
- Deep tissue massage and trigger point therapy
- Stretch therapy
- Joint mobilisation
