Massage might seem like an indulgence, but its benefits really do extend far beyond relaxation. An important tool in the management and treatment of pain and muscular tension, remedial massage is an integral part of our holistic service offering at Collins Place Physio.
Think about your car for a moment. What happens when you neglect to service it? Your body’s just the same. A little fine tuning here and there will keep you running at your peak. So, think of regular remedial massage as an investment in your wellbeing that will save you from unnecessary pain and dysfunction, as well as saving you money in the long run!
Also known as clinical massage, remedial massage involves treating soft tissue dysfunction through hands-on manipulation; ultimately working to rehabilitate, maintain and enhance the body’s natural mobility.
Remedial massage can help in the management of many short term and chronic conditions. It is regularly used to treat a range of issues including arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome, chronic muscular tension, headaches, sports injuries, sinusitis and muscle strain. And, with our increasingly sedentary lives, remedial massage is increasingly important to help counteract reduced mobility.
For starters, remedial massage is known to improve circulation, enhance joint and muscle function, decrease pain, anxiety, tension headaches and insomnia, while encouraging relaxation and enhancing feelings of wellbeing.
But that’s not all! Massage can also boost your immunity, promote healthy blood pressure and help regulate neurohormones. Find out more benefits of remedial massage in our blog post.
At Collins Place Physio, our remedial massage therapists work alongside our physiotherapists to treat clients holistically. Your therapist will assess you to determine the most suitable technique(s). Some of the remedial massage techniques commonly used by our therapists include deep tissue massage, trigger point massage, dry needling, myofascial release, muscle energy techniques, cupping, soft tissue release, lymphatic drainage, and stretching.
Our remedial massage therapists will also arm you with corrective exercises to perform at home.
Everyone! Whether you are a 9-to-9 desk worker or professional sportsperson, young or old, in prime health or chronically ill, remedial massage can be a beneficial addition to your personal maintenance regime. (However, please consult your doctor if you have any medical conditions, and make your condition known to your massage therapist before your treatment.)
Absolutely! Both of our remedial massage therapists are skilled at Pregnancy (Pre-natal) Massage. This form of massage therapy is tailored to meet the individual needs of expectant mothers during this special time. Pregnancy Massage can help reduce stress, decrease swelling in the arms and legs, and relieve aches and pains.
