Remedial Massage Therapists
The initial treatment session with a remedial massage therapist involves taking a detailed history of what caused the dysfunction, followed by a movement assessment to check clients’ range of movement. In addition to deep tissue massage, remedial therapy may include a variety of techniques, such as digital pressure, fascia release, cross-fiber friction, lymphatic drainage, and trigger point therapy. By releasing muscle spasm pressure and targeting the affected tendons and ligaments, remedial massage increases circulation and aids in the body’s natural healing process.
If you are experiencing muscle strain, pain, or tension, you may benefit from a remedial massage. Contact a professional massage therapist in your area and enjoy a noticeable increase in your range of motion.
