About Remedial Massage FAQ's

Remedial massage is a natural hands-on therapy which focuses on specific parts of the body that require rehabilitation.  It is used to improve physical performance and promote healing of soft tissue, tendons and bones.  Remedial massage therapists generally target muscles that are tense, knotted, damaged or immobile in order to relieve pain, release tension, reduce spasms and restore function.

In order for someone to practise as a remedial massage therapist, they have to complete a Diploma in Remedial Massage which can only be offered by a Registered Training Organisation.  Qualified remedial massage therapists can join professional industry bodies such as the Association of Massage Therapists (AMT) and the Australian Traditional Medicine Society.

There are a multitude of benefits to remedial massage.  It can be used in the clinical management of a wide variety of health issues including sporting injuries, muscle cramps, tight muscles, arthritis and frozen shoulder as well as for managing pain and mobility challenges associated with conditions like cerebral palsy and multiple sclerosis. It is primarily used to treat soft tissue and joint injuries as well as postural problems.

Whether you’ve hurt yourself playing sport, are experiencing painful muscle tension or immobility, are in pain from an acute injury, have soft tissue dysfunction or live with a chronic condition like multiple sclerosis, remedial massage can be a game-changer.  It’s also a proven intervention in relieving stress and anxiety and promoting better emotional wellbeing.  Remedial massage has been successfully used for generations to treat an extensive range of acute and chronic conditions, and our door is always open for our skilled remedial massage therapists to help you.

All types of massage involve the therapist kneading the patient’s body using their hands to apply pressure and create various types of movement, eg strokes and compression.  The difference between regular massage and remedial massage is that they have different objectives and they target different areas.  Remedial massage has a specific objective to improve functionality in specific areas of the body or localised pain points whereas regular relaxation or deep tissue massage involve a whole body wellbeing experience.

Our initial remedial massage sessions take 60 minutes.  This extended consultation is necessary in order to give our massage therapists sufficient time to fully investigate your injury or pain point before performing effective treatment.  Follow-up sessions take 30 minutes.

You should feel some relief after a single session.  Some patients don’t need any follow-up treatments, but our massage therapists will tailormake a treatment programme specifically for you and will only recommend further appointments when absolutely necessary.

Our initial remedial massage appointments generally follow a fairly standard structure. The therapist will first ascertain all the details of your injury, pain-point or muscle tension and discuss your health and wellbeing objectives before starting your treatment session. You can expect to feel pain relief and improvement after your first appointment.

It depends on your provider and your level of cover.  In most cases, policyholders are able to claim a portion of the cost of remedial massage, but it depends on the individual circumstances.

Remedial massage is a targeted treatment for pain and injury and therapists use a combination of deep pressure and trigger point therapy to access the affected soft tissue and promote healing.  Techniques include efflourage (a French word meaning ‘to skim’ or ‘touch lightly on’), compression, deep strokes, vibration and skin rolling.  Joint mobilisation techniques are also used to improve flexibility and freedom of movement.

Here at Trained Physio and Fitness, we take a holistic approach to your health and healing, so we will recommend additional services when we think they’re appropriate.  We offer a range of treatments at our Perth physiotherapy practice including dry needling and exercise physiology, plus we have excellent relationships with other medical professionals including sports doctors and radiologists.  Note that we will always base our treatment plan on clinical evaluation and will only make recommendations for further interventions when absolutely necessary.
