Remedial Massage is a treatment for specific injuries or muscular dysfunction. The massage is tailored to address the specific needs of the individual, in order to improve or ultimately resolve the underlying problem.

  • Remedial Massage may consist of a combination of deep tissue, trigger point therapy and stretching techniques, and is great for that nagging pain that just won’t go away.
  • Remedial Massage therapy can assist the body in its own healing processes, where disease or injury has occurred in muscles, connective tissues, bones and joints. Massage can also assist healing through its effect on the psychological condition of the patient, increasing a sense of confidence, well-being and relaxation. It reduces stress, both emotional and physical, and is suggested in a regular program for stress management. It also has specific clinical advantages to assist in medical, rehabilitation therapeutic program.One of the immediate benefits of Remedial Massage is a feeling of deep relaxation and calm. This occurs because the massage prompts the release of Endorphins, the brain chemicals (neurotransmitters) that produce feelings of wellbeing. Levels of stress hormones – such as Adrenalin, Cortisol and Norepinephrine – are also reduced. Studies indicate that high levels of stress hormones impair the immune system.
  • Remedial Massage is greatly beneficial and can reduce symptoms by relaxing the tension in the muscles, stimulating the flow of blood through the muscles, breaking down and eliminating toxins, enhancing oxygenation of the brain and relaxing the nervous system and mind.Remedial massage can holistically address the whole body to ease out tension, and repair damage to muscles, joints, tendons and soft tissue.

Myotherapy is the assessment, treatment and management of musculoskeletal conditions, which may cause muscular dysfunction and the pain thus affecting movement & mobility. Myotherapists utilize a range of treatment techniques to restore and maintain the normal integrity of the soft tissue structures (muscles, tendons, ligaments and fascia). They also employ various soft tissue manipulation techniques, together with other modalities such as: trigger point therapy, dry needling, deep tissue massage, hot and cold therapies, passive/active muscle stretching and corrective or rehabilitative exercises. A Myotherapist aims to identify the cause of one’s pain to ensure quick, effective and long lasting results.

Back Pain

Back Pain 1980 1320 Northside Massage

Northside Massage & Natural Therapies Centre, Aspley

Lower back pain is a common condition with it estimated that around 70-90% of Australians will suffer from lower back pain in some form at some point of their life. It can be related to number of conditions or diseases which include posture, work place or sporting injuries, scoliosis, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis and numerous genetic conditions.

Regular Remedial or Myotherapy treatments can help ease some of the muscular pain by using techniques such as deep and soft tissue massage, trigger point therapy, cupping and dry needling. Releasing the large muscles around the spine, gluts, hip flexors and hamstrings, can help improve muscle tone and release pressure on the nerves around the spine which send the pain signals to the brain. Remedial massage will also help improve posture and flexibility, which in turn can reduce pain in the lower back.

Does remedial massage hurt?
For muscles holding a lot tension, deep tissue massage and trigger point therapy can initially be quite painful. Most people describe the pain being felt as a “good pain”, as it slowly eases off when the muscles relax.
If the body is not used to deep tissue massage, it is expected to feel a bit like you’ve just done a heavy weight session in the muscles worked on, however they should start to feel a lot better within 1 to 2 days.

The key to recovery for any injury is maintenance and keeping up with regular massage will help keep your muscles in check by improving blood supply and tensions within the muscles.
