Remedial massage Melbourne cbd is a treatment modality that manipulates the soft tissues of the body for a specific therapeutic effect. It uses relevant techniques, herbal liniments and movements according to the client’s needs and response. This leads to the healing process, which begins at the cellular level aiding soft tissues in repairing, restoring functional integrity and adapting back to health.
The actual treatment intervention is only a part of the whole process. The intellectual reasoning that proceeds, accompanies and follows the treatment is essential and complex. Clinical reasoning is achieved when the Professional Practice Protocol (PPP) is followed, the response from the client is assessed and the technique is adapted to their condition.
When remedial massage is practiced at this professional level it is directed by the initial assessment of the client, modified to suit the needs of the individual, and adapted in the light of each individual’s response. The quality of the decisions made using this clinical reasoning will determine the quality of the treatment.
Remedial massage Melbourne cbd is a deep massage which creates the conditions for the body’s return to normal health after injury or with muscular-skeletal disorders. It is used to treat chronic muscular-skeletal imbalances, strains, sprains, broken bones, bruising or any injury where the skin is intact. It removes blockages, damaged cells, scar tissue and adhesions left after injury, speeds up recovery and encourages more complete healing. Remedial massage is also used for conditions created by lifestyle for example repetitive strain injury and back pain. It is designed to increase the flow of blood and lymph, particularly in the injured areas.
It is often successful where other forms of treatment have failed. Therapists are not qualified to provide medical advice or diagnosis, however, an extensive knowledge of anatomy and physiology is required to determine where to treat each patient.
The therapist uses the patient’s feedback to pinpoint the damaged tissue and to regulate pressure. The results are usually immediate; certainly within 3 sessions a big improvement will be seen. Most patients feel a difference after 1 session. A recent injury, perhaps within weeks, will react and recover more quickly than a long-term injury, some up to 40 years. However they will all see improvement.
Remedial massage Melbourne cbd has particular success with long-standing back and compound injuries that have resisted previous treatment attempts. Sportsmen and women attend regularly to ensure that unnoticeably small injuries are treated before they reduce performance and become debilitating. Recurrent injuries are injuries that have never been effectively treated.
Some common conditions that can be successfully treated are:
- Achilles Tendon
- Shin Splints
- Groin Strain
- Cartilage damage
- Tennis Elbow
- Frozen Shoulder
- Hamstring Injuries
- Plantar Fasciitis
- Scar tissue
- Carpal Tunnel Syndrome
- Repetitive Strain Injury
The intention is more to fix a mechanical problem, however, all-round health improvement is seen: better sleep, increase in vitality and performance levels, as well as increased mobility. It can also be used to treat general muscle soreness from over exertion. If stress is a big factor in your life then ideally a combination of remedial and relaxation techniques will achieve optimal results. A one hour treatment is recommended for the first session but try to allow an extra 15 minutes prior to your appointment for the initial assessment.
