What is Remedial Massage Therapy?

Anna Wilson - Remedial Massage Therapist

As a society we are becoming increasingly invested in our optimal health and longevity. Many people are conscious of the infinite benefits that holistic remedies and natural therapies provide, however, it is still prevalent that modalities such as these are grossly misunderstood. As a Remedial Massage Therapist (RMT) I would like to offer clarity and give insight into this particular style of treatment.

Remedial Massage Therapy can be described as the assessment and treatment of soft tissue dysfunctions that cause pain and restrict the body’s natural movement patterns.

It differs from other styles of massage (e.g. Relaxation and Reflexology) as the client undergoes a detailed investigation into their current health status. The RMT performs and records observations, palpation, motion testing and a range of other physical testing procedures, to determine how to best move forward with the treatment.

As mentioned earlier the benefits of Massage are endless. These include increased range of motion and flexibility, helps to relieve muscle tension and stiffness, reduces involuntary muscle spasms, enhances athletic performance, improves circulation of blood and lymph fluids, helps reduce blood pressure, facilitates the body’s natural healing process, reduces pain and swelling, and can help lessen the affects of anxiety and mental fatigue.

I hope to see you in store, to find out how massage therapy can help you.

Look out for my next article, where I will delve into common conditions of the shoulder and how to facilitate healing.

"After more than 35 Years of emotional and physical heartache which has manifested into years of ill health, I can finally say I AM FREE.. WOW!! Even writing that makes me smile. Obviously I still need medical treatment, but to have that clarity is so over whelming. I am crying with joy now not sadness and frustration."
