What is remedial massage? Part 1
Remedial Massage is deep tissue massage performed by a trained massage therapist to treat muscular disorders to help return the body to normal health. The massage therapist needs to be trained in anatomy and physiology to know how to treat the patient.
Chronic imbalances like sprains and strains can be treated. Blockages like adhesions, scar tissue, damaged cells can be removed by remedial massage. Recovery is accelerated and healing is encouraged to be more complete. Lifestyle conditions like repetitive strain injury (RSI) and back pain can also be treated by remedial massage, Blood flow and lymph flow is increased into the injured area.
Tenderness is often found in areas being treated when the muscles and tendons are injured. The patient can give feedback so that the therapist can pin point the damaged regions. Manual pressure needs to be adjusted accordingly. Results are often immediate, usually within one treatment. Sometimes three treatments or more are needed.
Long term injuries will respond and improve gradually but more recent injuries will respond within weeks.
