WHAT IS REMEDIAL MASSAGE? 

Remedial massage is a type of massage therapy that focuses on realigning deeper layers of muscles and connective tissue. It is especially helpful for chronic aches and pains and contracted areas such as stiff neck and upper back, low back pain, leg muscle tightness, and sore shoulders.

The movements tend to be much slower and the pressure is deeper and concentrated on areas of tension and pain in order to reach the sub-layer of muscles and the fascia (the connective tissue surrounding muscles).

I usually combine deep tissue massage techniques with dry needling, if need be and cupping to gain the results I am after.

I can also use hot stones throughout my remedial massage treatments as an added relaxation technique to sooth after a deeper massage is applied.

What to expect during a remedial massage?

When there is chronic muscle tension or injury, there are usually adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue) in muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Adhesions can block circulation and cause pain, limited movement, and inflammation.

Remedial massage works by physically breaking down these adhesions to relieve pain and restore normal movement. To do this, I use massage oil and often use direct deep pressure, but only after firstly relaxing the muscle with the use of heat packs or hot stones, in this way I can release the hold on the connective tissue, which then enables me to work deeper without too much unnecessary pain.

Some of the techniques I use are fingertips, knuckles, hands, elbows, and forearms during the remedial tissue massage. I may also use dry needling and cupping techniques.

I may ask you to breathe deeply as I work on certain tense areas.

Does remedial massage hurt?

As I use the technique I described above to limit pain during remedial tissue massage, at certain points during the massage, some people may find some discomfort when trigger points or tight adhesions are being released.

So I encourage my clients to communicate with me as to when things hurt and if any soreness or pain you experience is outside your comfort range.

There may be some stiffness or tenderness after a remedial tissue massage, but it should subside within a day or so. I may recommend applying ice, heat or castor oil packs to the area after the massage.
