Remedial massage therapists are professionals who are trained to identify physical and bio-mechanical issues within the body. By using their thumbs, knuckles, and elbows, remedial massage therapists apply differing amounts of pressure to muscles and other connective tissue, to realign, release, and relax the patient’s body. Remedial massage therapists have extensive training in multiple areas, such as anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology, in order to understand the way the human body works and connects.
Remedial massage is a therapy technique used to assist in the treatment of muscles, ligaments, connective tissue, and tendons. Sore and stiff muscles, scar tissue buildup, and injury recovery and prevention are all treated in remedial massage therapy. By manipulating the soft tissue in the body, issues can be identified and resolved using a number of different massage techniques. These techniques include deep tissue massage, trigger point therapy, myofascial release therapy, and thermotherapy. Remedial massage therapy can also be used alongside other complementary therapies, such as acupuncture.
