What is remedial massage?

Remedial massage is a specialist treatment used to find and repair damaged areas of the body. This hands-on technique also aids the body’s own healing process. Depending on the injury or desired outcome, applied pressure may be intense and deep or soft and shallow.

Remedial massage is not a band-aid solution. We understand that musculoskeletal issues can cause discomfort in other areas of the body. We aim to trace the original source of your injury, so that we can alleviate both the symptoms and the cause.

How often should you get a remedial massage?

 

How often you should get a remedial massage depends on the issue you are treating or the outcome you’re looking for, as well as individual factors.

If you have an injury, a qualified remedial massage therapist can assess your situation to determine how a remedial massage can help. The therapist will also define the recommended course of treatment, including how often massage will be needed.

To address pain or discomfort caused by muscle tension, the frequency will depend on the individual case, though weekly or fortnightly massages are often recommended. If the aims involve stress relief or maintaining good musculoskeletal health, treatment frequency will generally depend on the individual preferences of the patient.

Contact West Pennant Hills Physiotherapy for advice on how often you need a remedial massage for your individual circumstances.

 

Does remedial massage hurt?

 

A remedial massage may involve some discomfort, but it should rarely hurt. In order to be effective in addressing injury and muscle tension, remedial massage often requires working deep into the tissue. This deeper work is necessary to increase circulation and release tight muscles or fascia.

This can mean a level of discomfort during the massage and some soreness afterwards, as the tissues repair. However, when using a professional remedial therapist like West Pennant Hills Physiotherapy, this discomfort and soreness will be kept to a minimum. Very deep massage is often counterproductive and may hinder rather than help the issue you are trying to address.

What does remedial massage do?

 

Remedial massage is a specialised treatment that identifies and repairs damaged areas of the body. Rather a quick, temporary solution, remedial massage seeks to alleviate not only the symptoms but also the cause of the discomfort.

We know that pain and discomfort is often caused by musculoskeletal issues. Our West Pennant Hills remedial massage services aim to trace the original source of the injury in order to address the underlying issues so that the symptoms do not reoccur.

How does remedial massage work?

 

Remedial massage works by using pressure to repair damaged tissues. This pressure can range from intense and deep to soft and shallow, depending on the injury treated or the desired outcome of the massage.

The hands-on technique of remedial massage also aids the body’s own healing process, helping to treat the injury.

What is remedial massage good for?

 

Remedial massage is good for relieving symptoms and treating the underlying causes of a range of issues and problems.

Our remedial massage services in Castle Hill Road can help to treat:

  • Sporting injuries

  • Muscle cramps

  • Fibrositis

  • Arthritis

  • Whiplash

  • Muscular atrophy

  • Frozen shoulder

What to do after a remedial massage?

 

After remedial massage, it is important to take certain steps to make sure your body receives the full benefit from the massage.

You should aim to rest immediately following your remedial massage. This helps to prolong the physical and mental benefits of deep relaxation. Having a bath is a great way to rest and relax after your massage. A bath (or a warm shower if a bath is not possible) will also assist in healing your muscles, open up blood vessels, and increase circulation.

Stretching is also critical after your remedial massage, as this helps to realign the muscle fibres and aids with muscle recovery. If you are treating a specific injury, your massage therapist may give you stretches to do at home following your massage. Finally, it is important to stay hydrated, so make sure you drink plenty of water after your remedial massage.

It is also common to experience muscle tenderness or soreness following the session, similar to the soreness you may feel after intense exercising. This should last no longer than 48 hours, and you can relieve pain and inflammation by using ice or cold packs on the tender areas.

However, if you experience intense pain following a remedial massage you should immediately contact your massage therapist to seek advice.

What is the difference between myotherapy and remedial massage?

 

The main difference between myotherapy and remedial massage is that myotherapy uses a broader range of massage techniques. Myopathy and remedial massage therapy both treat the soft tissue of the body in order to relieve musculoskeletal pain. However, while remedial massage therapy focuses on manipulating the soft tissues, myotherapy can also use techniques such as dry needling, cupping, and musculoskeletal alignment.

Does NDIS cover remedial massage?

 

The NDIS covers remedial massage for those registered under the NDIS scheme, and for whom remedial massage is considered part of the treatment of their disability. If in doubt, please contact us at West Pennant Hills Physiotherapy to discuss.
