Remedial massage is the systematic assessment and treatment of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body to assist in rehabilitation, pain and injury management. It’s performed to create favourable conditions for the body to return to normal health after injury and is defined by the idea that the treatment can reasonably reverse certain physical effects a patient may be presenting.
If a patient has suffered a moderate injury resulting in structural pain and/or loss of function, then remediation is required to reduce or eliminate pain and restore that function. Remedial massage is designed to balance muscle/soft tissue length, tension, tone which will in turn promote the return to normal joint/capsular/bone position; increase the flow of blood and lymph, particularly in the injured areas, thus removing blockages, damaged cells, scar tissue and adhesions resulting from injury.
A remedial therapist must have knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology to determine where to treat patients. My special interest is trigger points and I love getting rid of those nasty knots! I love using essential oils as well since it can enhance the process and get much better outcome results.
Remedial Massage: $100 - 60 minutes (including trigger point therapy)
