What is Remedial Massage?

Remedial massage is a type of therapeutic bodywork that can effectively assess and treat myofascial pain, injury, and dysfunction. 

Remedial massage therapists are trained in providing specialised hands-on techniques such as myofascial release, trigger point therapy and deep tissue massage.


Remedial massage treatment involves massage to treat skeletal muscles that present as damaged, knotted, tense or immobile. Remedial massage therapy is useful for several common problems affecting muscles, tendons, ligaments and bones along with many other health problems.

Remedial massage is used to provide relief for people experiencing pain, such as back pain and headaches. It does this by locating and repairing damaged areas of the body to alter the body’s own healing processes. Remedial massage can involve pressure that is strong and deep or gentle and superficial depending on presentation and personal tolerances.

Remedial massage factors in muscles that trigger and refer pain to other regions of the body, such as low back pain referring down the thigh or neck pain referring headache pain into the head. Remedial massage traces the original reason for the pain to treat the cause and symptoms of the presentation.

Before the massage begins, massage therapists will take a detailed health history for the purposes of identifying body regions of focus, contribution of day to day activities on symptoms, appropriateness of remedial massage therapy and informing of objective assessments.

Your massage therapist will take note of any irregularities they observe from your posture. They also perform range of movement and joint assessments to gather more understanding of flexibility, muscle strength and tone. 


Your massage therapist will identify signs and symptoms of presentations caused by muscle, joint, ligament, nerve or tendon impingement or dysfunction. Orthopaedic and neural tests are utilised to rule out any symptoms caused by major pathologies or injury.  

Our own massage therapist uses several specialised and tailored massage techniques to locate and repair damaged areas of the body. Deep tissue massage and trigger point therapy are commonly utilised to palpate and repair areas of the body region carrying dysfunction. He will talk you through the process of what he is doing and why to keep you comfortable while intense symptoms of pain and discomfort are replicated.

Benefits of remedial massage

You do not have to be in pain to enjoy the benefits of remedial massage. This type of massage can also help to improve circulation, ease tense muscles, and promote relaxation. Whether you're looking to reduce stress or alleviate pain, remedial massage can offer a welcome respite from the demands of daily life.


The remedial massage therapist will use a variety of techniques to target specific areas of concern. For example, trigger point therapy focuses on releasing knots of tight muscle tissue. Swedish massage is a more gentle approach that uses long strokes to promote relaxation. Remedial massage can be an effective way to address a wide range of physical and emotional concerns.

Remedial Massage Therapy by Billy aims to balance the length, tone and tension of muscles and tendons, which restores the correct position of the bones, increases blood flow and helps heal injuries.

Easing and stabilising the muscles can improve problems such as headaches, abdominal pain, low back pain and sciatic pain.

Some health problems that are often treated with remedial massage include sporting and dance injuries, muscle cramps, whiplash, fibromyalgia, muscular atrophy, fibrositis, spondylitis, arthritis and frozen shoulder.

The benefits of remedial massage have been shown to stimulate the blood supply, make joints more mobile, and help repair damaged tissues.

Remedial massage vs Deep tissue

When it comes to massage therapy, there are two main schools of thought: remedial massage vs deep tissue.


Both approaches have their advantages, but for many people, deep tissue massage is the more effective option.


Remedial massages focus on the superficial muscles, using light pressure and long strokes. This type of massage can be relaxing, and it is often used as a way to reduce stress. However, it does not provide the same level of relief as deep tissue massage.


Deep tissue massage targets the deep muscles and connective tissues. This approach uses more pressure than remedial massage, and it can be uncomfortable at times. However, it is much more effective at releasing tension and alleviating pain.


For people who are looking for real relief from muscle aches and pains, deep tissue massage may be the better option. However, a combination of both is often recommended for a balanced and holistic remedial massage experience.

Speak to your massage therapist during your consultation to find out which approach is better for you. Your remedial massage therapists will tailor a massage to your presentation.
