Remedial Massage Brisbane

When muscles and tendons become damaged or impaired, knotted and tense or immobile, Remedial Massage provides a healing treatment that can be gentle or strong, deep or shallow.

Remedial massage holistically treats the whole body and traces the discomfort as far as possible back to the original cause, healing both the cause of the disorder as well as the symptoms​.

Remedial massage is a deep massage creating the conditions for the body’s return to normal health after injury. It is used to treat strains, sprains, broken bones, bruising, any injury where the skin is intact. Deep tissue massage 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 an unusual form of massage in that it does not set out to relax the patient, 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.

Remedial massage is often used by athletes but is equally effective for non-sports people requiring rehabilitation following personal accident or injury. Many debilitating conditions that people associate with age can be traced back to an old injury and treated successfully with a return of free movement and strength.


Some common conditions that can be successfully treated with remedial massage and dry needling are:

• Head aches & migraines • Back Pain • Achilles Injuries • Tendinitis • Shin Splints • Groin Strain • Cartilage damage • Tennis Elbow • Frozen Shoulder • Hamstring Injuries • Plantar Fasciitis • Scar tissue • Adhesions • Whiplash • Carpal Tunnel Syndrome • Repetitive Strain Injury
