Remedial Massage therapy is the manipulation of soft tissues with the use of the hands by trained therapists for the purposes of relaxation, reducing muscular pain and tension, and improving general mobility. It is extremely beneficial for people leading busy lifestyles as it not only promotes mental relaxation but also works to relieve back and neck pain that result from postural strain (e.g. sitting for extended periods at a desk or hard physical labour).
At head to toe healthcare™ our massage therapists utilise a range of approaches including deep tissue, remedial, sports, relaxation and pregnancy massage. They are all fully qualified remedial therapists, allowing you to claim your private health insurance rebate for this service on applicable policies. Our team of massage therapists work very closely to support the treatment by our osteopaths and physiotherapists and can also be used as a stand alone alternative for the management of a wide range of complaints, including:
- muscular tension
- headaches and migraines
- work related stress
- occupational strain injuries
- muscular discomfort associated with digestive problems
- pre and postnatal pregnancy strains
- sports and dancing injuries
Many people wait until they are already in pain before turning to massage, but why let it get that bad? Pain is the body’s signal to us that tissue is damaged, however this is normally from accumulated micro-trauma over months, or even years, from things such as tension and poor posture. It is our belief that massage should be used as a preventative measure so that such injuries are much less likely to occur. Looking after your muscles with regular massage in conjunction with daily exercise will increase your overall sense of wellbeing for optimal physical and mental health.
