Remedial Massage

What is remedial massage?

Remedial massage is a modality based on physical assessment to determine the musculoskeletal causes of your condition or complaint.  Treatment usually involves several techniques which may include: deep tisssue massage, myofascial release, trigger point therapy, stretching, etc.

The therapist will assess your soft tissue condition, and then treat the dysfunction that is the cause of the pain, injury or stress.  Typically the therapist will provide you with ongoing advice specific to your condition and circumstances; this may include strengthening exercises, stretches and/or referral to other practitioners.

Treatments are generally 30 minutes or 1 hour, with your therapist advising which is appropriate for your complaint.  Generally more than one treatment is required for most conditions, and this will be discussed with you during your initial consultation. 

Referral for remedial massage is not required unless you are a WorkCover/Comcare patient - in which case you must have a referral from your GP which has approval from WorkCover/Comcare.
