What is it?

Remedial Massage is an effective therapeutic treatment designed to relieve pain and tension, while also focusing on addressing the underlying cause of musculoskeletal problems. During a massage consultation a Remedial Massage therapist provides a systematic assessment and treatment of muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body to assist in rehabilitation, pain and injury management. Remedial Massage therapists have knowledge of anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology to holistically treat the whole body, tracing the discomfort as far back as possible and then working on both the cause of the discomfort, as well as the symptoms.
A Remedial Massage differs from a Relaxation Massage a lot. Relaxation simply aims to relax you, and in the process, it reduces some tension and tightness. While beneficial, it does not specifically target or alleviate aches, pain or restriction. Relaxation massage is best for simply unwinding. Remedial massage provides a targeted treatment plan and will involve a detailed history of the issue that is troubling you.  Remedial massage is good for treating both acute and long-standing issues which are often ongoing problems, as opposed to acute injuries, and can improve many troubling problems.

How does it work, to heal you?

Remedial Massage therapy has numerous therapeutic benefits. It works to increase circulation and blood supply, allowing toxins in the muscles to be removed. Soft tissue techniques increase the blood supply to damaged nerves and assist in the recovery and repair of injuries. It helps to relieve tension in muscles and break up knots or trigger points. It can also help with fascial (connective tissue) imbalances by using Myofascial release techniques (MFR) to lengthen and open the tight/stuck fascial sling. It also helps reduce stiffness and swelling, return proper function and strength to muscles, improve joint mobility and contribute to an overall feeling of relaxation and wellness. Research shows that massage provides effective relief for back pain, neck pain, headaches, some sports injury, chronic fatigue, depression, stress, and improves your general well-being.

Brian Gadsby

Dip. Remedial Massage

Brian's passion for massage started many years ago while competing at an elite level in sport (Australian Windsurfing Champion 1999-2000). Before undertaking professional training in Remedial Massage, Brian would massage his friends and family, and enjoyed seeing the enormous health benefits and happiness that came from it.  The pivotal moment that changed his own lifestyle and how he looked after his own body came while he was working away on the mines in construction, dealing with stress and fatigue, which finally got too much.  This is when he started searching and finding the answers to heal his body naturally through the power of massage.
