Remedial Massage Therapy Is Used In The Treatment Of Acute Or Chronic Conditions And To Prevent Ongoing Issues.
Remedial massage is a medical treatment that dates back thousands of years. Using an integrated, therapeutic approach, our highly-skilled massage therapists are able to pinpoint, identify and relieve your areas of pain and muscle soreness.
Massage is not only a physical treatment. Our therapists are trained to understand how massage can create psychological and occupational change. If applicable, clinical orthopaedic and neurological tests may also be used.
HOW IT WORKS
Our massage therapists have a complete understand of the body and its functions. Using this knowledge as the basis of our work, we are able to increase joint mobility, reduce muscle pain and tension, as well as reduce stress and correct imbalances in the body.
Before your massage, we will ask you to complete a patient history form. We will also conduct an extensive physical evaluation.
During this evaluation, our highly-trained massage therapists will observe your movement, body tissue, gait and assess your posture. Together, this information helps us identify a remedial massage treatment plan that’s bespoke to your needs.
