Therapeutic Remedial Massage is a massage therapy that focuses on treating specific injuries and promotes overall healing. The process uses deep, firm strokes with trigger points, manipulation, heat therapy, therapeutic stretching, cupping, dry needling, and myofascial techniques.

Unlike other massage techniques, therapeutic remedial massage aims to identify the areas of injury and reasons for discomfort. 

Remedial massage treats a variety of ailments, including:

-Headaches and migraines 

-Muscle Tension

-Stress and anxiety 

-Back and shoulder pain

-Hip and pelvic imbalances

Having a remedial massage for the first time can be a bit intimidating.

Here are some things that you can expect during your first session of remedial massage. 

Initial Consultation

Before the session, your therapist will ask you several questions regarding your health history, current health condition, and areas of injury. 

Be comfortable enough to share all the details with your therapist. As your therapist tailors the techniques to your discomfort and affected areas.

Setting Up 

Now, it’s time to be ready for the session! The therapist will take you to a room with all the necessities, including towels, drapes, and sheets, to ensure your comfort.

Massage Time

During the session, the therapist uses deep, firm strokes with trigger points, manipulation, heat therapy, therapeutic stretching, cupping, dry needling, and myofascial techniques.

The therapist will apply pressure to your injuries while also assessing your tolerance level. Hence, if you are feeling any discomfort or need some adjustments, you can kindly communicate with your therapist.

Post-Massage Experience 

After the massage, you may feel a slight relief of pain and improved flexibility. However, the release of built-up tension usually results in soreness for some time. This is normal and resolves within 24–48 hours after the remedial massage session.

You also need to follow the instructions given by the therapist to enhance the benefits, which include stretches and some exercises.

Everyone experiences remedial massage differently. The pressure applied and the techniques depend on the type of injury you have.

“Investing in self-care is always a good idea.”
