Remedial Massage Therapy

Remedial massage is a therapeutic approach to reducing tense and knotted muscles by manipulating the soft tissue and causing a change in muscle tone. It is similar to regular massage however the movement is long and slow and the pressure is deeper and concentrated to the area of muscle tension and pain.

The deeper friction aims to break down the adhesions through muscle fibres and increase range of movement and flexibility and provide an increase in circulation and a reduction of fibrotic tissue.

Like all treatments at the Sports Medicine Institute, remedial massage therapy treatments are tailored to suit individual needs. Our primary objective is to treat the body holistically to assist and improve optimal functional health.
