Remedial Massage Therapy
Applied Body Therapeutics SPECIALISE in Remedial Massage Therapy
Remedial Massage Therapy requires a high level of training and skill across a broad range of massage modalities.
Simply put, a therapist trained in Remedial Massage Therapy is able to use numerous techniques to treat a broad range of physical conditions with the end result to have a positive effect on the health and well-being of the patient.
It is the 'banner' under which many massage techniques are grouped. Private Health Funds that cover massage often refer to a range of massage modalities under the Remedial Massage Therapy banner.
In treating a condition such as lower back pain and discomfort, the therapist may use numerous techniques such as Trigger Point Therapy, Myofascial Release, Sports Massage techniques, Deep Tissue massage and even P.N.F. stretching techniques to relieve the cause and the symptoms. In some cases, taping with Rocktape or K-Tape may help in the management of injuries.
In treating Bronchial conditions, the therapist may use Swedish Massage techniques such as tapotement, Lymphatic Drainage techniques and perhaps Reflexology to alleviate the symptoms and to help the body heal itself.
In treating sports injuries, the therapist may use Lymphatic Drainage techniques, cross fibre mobilisation techniques, Myofascial Release and Sports Massage to reduce swelling and oedema and increase range of motion.
If you are carrying any kind of injury, Remedial Massage Therapy is what you need to restore you back to full function again.
All of our remedial therapists hold nationaly recognised qualifications in Remedial Massage Therapy and have years of experience in treating a very broad range of muscular issues.
