Remedial Massage Gold Coast, Southport

Remedial Massage

Remedial massage may sound hard, firm and scary; however, it is a great treatment when your body suffers from chronic pain, you have been in an injury or feel tension and strains.

Remedial massage is often misunderstood or confused with other modalities of treatments such as sports massage, deep tissue, physiotherapy, osteopathy and chiropractic. The main reason for this confusion is that may physiotherapists, osteopaths and chiropractors know how to perform Remedial Massage and offer remedial massage services to their clients.

Remedial Massage vs Deep Tissue Massage

Many prospective clients do not know the difference between Deep Tissue and Remedial Massage. Some classify it as the different technique and others classify it with Private Health Fund claims or not.

Both are correct!

Remedial Massage is a treatment is classified as a complementary therapy which helps to treat muscles that have been damaged or injured. In the name of the massage it is a remedy, applying pressure and using techniques to mobilise and get the body functioning as per usual.

Deep Tissue on the other hand is an all-over full body massage that is a firmer pressured massage.

Qualified Remedial Massage Therapists

At Retreat Massage and Wellness, the majority of our massage therapists are qualified remedial massage therapists whom have a combined experience of over 60 years!

It is critical that you are treated by an educated, qualified and experienced Remedial Therapist. As it is a systematic assessment of your condition, it is paramount that the therapist knows what the essence of the problem is. It is also recommended that you choose one therapist and try and stick with the one therapist so they can see gradual improvement, constantly changing your therapist may lead to multiple “initial consultations”.
