Remedial Massage Caulfield
Remedial massage involves the systematic assessment and treatments of a person’s muscles and other soft tissues in order to recover from injury, assist in rehabilitation and manage pain. The focus of these massages is to restore a person to healthy function through balancing muscle/soft tissue length, tone and tension. This helps to return affected parts to their normal positioning, increase the flow of blood and lymph and remove blockages, damaged cells, adhesions and scar tissue that result from injuries and overuse.
A remedial massage therapist has a comprehensive understanding of anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology that assists them in determining the required treatment. Before any treatment is done, a thorough assessment and consultation is performed to determine a client’s health status and suitability for remedial massage. A comprehensive treatment plan is then formulated by the therapist who will select appropriate techniques with clinical expertise and apply them in way that suits the client’s needs.
