I have suffered from lower back pain for years and have been to heaps of beauty spas and massage parlours for massage. I kept searching for someone that could help ease away my lower back pain without much success. I have tried many types of massage and different massage therapist but still not much help on my pain. I felt good for about two to three hours after the massage but later my pain would return. Two months ago, I went to a remedial massage and it totally changed my life even after the one treatment. I could feel a huge difference immediately after the treatment, it not only eased my pain but I was pain free for a week. After 4 treatment sessions, I am thrilled to say that 80% of my pain is gone!

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 the oxygenation of the brain and relaxing the nervous system and mind. Remedial massage holistically treats the whole body and traces the discomfort as far as possible back to the original cause, healing both the causes of the disorder as well as the symptoms. The healing treatment can be gentle or strong, deep or shallow and usually using a lubricating medium (oil) directly to the skin to ensure that the muscles associated with the disorder and mobilisation of the joint are deeply treated. Passive stretching moves are also used.

Many remedial massage therapist have attained additional training, which usually includes more in-depth study and qualifications in anatomy and physiology. This extra knowledge and understanding will enable the massage therapist to carry out an assessment and provide appropriate treatments. The remedial massage therapist uses skilled manipulation combined with thorough knowledge to bring about pain relief, correcting and normalising the body's muscles and soft tissues.

The accredited remedial massage therapist honours the professional practice protocol to bring about the specific individualised therapeutic change with clinical reasoning. During treatment there is tenderness in areas that are being treated, which indicates what muscle and tendons are injured. The therapist uses the patient's feedback to pinpoint the damaged tissue and regulate pressure. The results are usually immediate, certainly within three sessions a big improvement will be seen with a skilful practitioner. Most patients feel a difference after one session.

Some common conditions that can be successfully treated by a remedial massage therapist are Achilles Tendon, Tendinitis, Shin Splints, Groin Strain, Hamstring Injuries, Plantar Fasciitis, Scar Tissues, Whiplash, Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and Repetitive Strain Injury.
