A remedial massage is better viewed as a ‘treatment’, and is used on an ongoing basis. When you visit a remedial massage therapist, they will take down your history, discuss what the issue is and what’s been troubling you, do an assessment which will include your range of motion and functional muscle testing, and then they will put a plan into place.
The treatment might include different massage techniques such as deep tissue, Swedish, sports, trigger point therapy or even some stretching. A proper treatment plan will need to be in place over several visits, as it is unlikely an existing problem can be fixed quickly in just one session.
The definition of a 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.
Contrary to popular belief, a remedial massage is not simply a deep tissue, or firm, massage offered by Joe Blog’s massage clinic down the road. A remedial therapist will need to have knowledge of anatomy, physiology and psychopathology and be equipped to be able to come up with a suitable treatment plan for their client. The therapist will also maintain a file on each client, with comprehensive notes outlining the treatment plans and any progress. This means your ongoing treatment will be highly effective no matter which therapist you see in a given clinic. Or if you decide to change clinics you can have your notes sent to the new location to ensure your treatment continues where it was left off, and it is a seamless transition.
