Remedial massage therapy is a conservative paramedical treatment that helps restore function of soft tissue (muscles, tendons, ligaments). It incorporates manipulation of tissue and other, specialised techniques. Massage can play a major therapeutic role in your treatment.
The massage therapy stretches muscles, inhibits muscle spasm, increases flexibility and helps break down scar tissue. So it can assist in your recovery from injury (either from an accident or during sport) and in care before or after surgery.
A neck and shoulder massage can also ease and help prevent chronic pain and injuries caused by poor posture or by sitting for long periods.
Our remedial massage therapists use a specific combination of techniques, including trigger point therapy, myofascial release, acupressure, and sports techniques. The therapists here are registered health care and private health fund providers with formal accreditation. They too are committed to ongoing professional development.
