A remedial massage therapist is a type of therapist that specializes in remedial therapy. They are trained to help clients who have injuries, chronic pain, repetitive strain injury (RSI), and other types of physical problems. The remedial massage can be used for people with arthritis, back pain, sports injuries, or even conditions like carpal tunnel syndrome! Massage has been shown to reduce blood pressure and heart rate while reducing stress levels. It also helps increase the flexibility in joints which reduces stiffness and improves mobility.
-The remedial massage therapist typically works on one side of the body at a time
-They use soft tissue techniques to release tension from muscles
-The remediation process may take longer than regular massages
The purpose is to help with healing and flexibility, not only addressing the pain that may be present.
Receiving a remedial massage can also assist in releasing tension and stress from your body – which has been shown to help reduce anxiety and depression.
