Remedial Massage Therapy
What is a remedial massage?
Remedial massage is an assessment and treatment of a specific dysfunction. This massage differs from others due to the process. Initially, the therapist performs various tests to assess what causes your pain, which muscles are not functioning correctly and other check-ups that will help to tailor a treatment plan that will suit you. Depending on your current state, this massage can be light, include some deep tissue elements or combine them both. The remedial treatment requires a constant participation from the client in different stages of the process. It is important to constantly communicate to the therapist about your state, share the feedback about the treatment to modify it accordingly. Often this type of massage does not include the full body massage as a general therapy.
