What is Remedial Massage?

Remedial massage therapy uses specific soft tissue massage techniques to treat dysfunction and injury. It aims to improve musculoskeletal injuries, pains, and postural imbalances caused by tension in the soft tissues or muscles.

In comparison to traditional full-body massages, they’re usually specific and more focused on the area of pain or injury. Whether you have acute or chronic pain, or you just need to relax, a remedial massage can help improve your overall health while restoring the body’s healing potential.

How Does Remedial Massage Work?

Remedial massage therapy is proven to have numerous physiological effects. It can:

  • Increased Blood Flow: The physical manipulation of the soft tissues helps increase circulation of blood and lymph fluid to the area being massaged. This increased amount of blood flow to the heart maintains its healthy functioning
  • Breaking Down Scar Tissue: Deep tissue techniques break down collagen fibre adhesions within soft tissues that are built up due to trauma, overuse, and stress.

  • Stimulates Feel-good Hormones: Massage stimulates the release of endorphins, serotonin and dopamine – hormones that produce relaxing feelings. This helps to promote a positive feeling throughout the body and elevates mood.

  • Relaxation Response: This massage reduces the cortisol levels in the body to decrease anxiety and stress. The hands-on therapy triggers the relaxation response, lowers blood pressure, and reduces stress hormones

All these physiological effects of this therapy can make you feel energised and relaxed. However, it takes qualification and experience to identify the areas of improvement. That’s where advice from a professional remedial massage therapist at Diamond Valley Physiotherapy comes in.

Here is how we work to offer you the best massage therapy fully customised to your needs:

  • Thorough Consultation: Our experienced physio for remedial massage will consult you to understand your problem area in-depth

  • Assessment and Treatment Plan: We will assess the extent of your injury through several movements and stretches. Based on the assessment findings, our therapist crafts a personalised treatment plan to address your concerns.

  • Targeted Techniques: You will receive a range of specific techniques that have been carefully formed to target specific problematic areas of your body. These movements penetrate the affected muscles and provide relief.

  • Guidance for Home Care: The physio may also instruct you to perform certain stretches for you to perform at home. These exercises support ongoing rehabilitation and contribute to long-term recovery.

Benefits of Remedial Massage

With our therapy, you can witness several improvements in your physical and mental health. Our remedial massage treatments, particularly sports remedial massage, can enhance the function of your joints and muscles while relieving muscular tension. Apart from this, the other benefits of this therapy include:

  • Enhances Blood Circulation: Remedial massage enhances blood flow throughout the body and promotes the body’s efficiency in transporting nutrients and oxygen.

  • Increases Range of Motion in Joints: Stretching and myofascial release techniques involved in this therapy help enhance flexibility. It can lead to increased joint mobility and range of motion.

  • Reduces Tight and Overworked Muscles: Remedial therapy treatment can reduce pain and muscular tension as it targets the specific areas of muscle tightness.

  • Relieves Stress and Anxiety: A soothing remedial therapy can lower cortisol levels and alleviate stress, anxiety, and depression.

  • Minimises Headaches: Remedial massages can decrease tension in shoulders, necks, and head. This reduced tension may assist in lowering the frequency and intensity of headaches.

  • Promotes Better Sleep: A remedial massage stimulates the release of endorphins. Thus, it helps your body feel relaxed which can substantially improve sleep quality.

  • Lowers Blood Pressure: The calming influence of remedial therapy contributes to lower blood pressure levels. This in turn may benefit individuals dealing with hypertension.

  • Enhances Mood:  This technique also has mood-enhancing effects. All thanks to its ability to trigger the release of neurotransmitters like dopamine and serotonin.

  • Improves Immunity and Overall Well-being: You can support your immunity system with remedial massage therapy, as it can increase blood circulation throughout the body.

  • Increases Energy: As this relaxing massage can muscle tension, it enhances overall relaxation which plays a major role in alleviating body and mental fatigue.
