What is Remedial Massage?

Remedial massage is performed at Mornington Chiropractic by a trained myotherapist and uses different techniques than those used for a relaxation massage.

Remedial massage is often used to treat pain and muscle tension.This type of massage works by increasing blood flow to the tissues, assisting with scar tissue breakdown and encouraging lymphatic drainage of swelling and waste products. This returns soft tissue flexibility to normal which in turn improves joint mobility.

A clinical approach to massage

Remedial massage therapists use a clinical approach to massage. They examine the problems that are causing pain, discomfort and a lack of mobility and tailor the message in a way that is designed to offer short and long-term relief from pain.
