Remedial massage tips from our Sydney, Chatswood & North Sydney remedial massage therapists

Schedule your massage carefully.

Ensure that you don’t schedule a deep tissue massage session too close to an event, especially if you are new to massage. Having a massage just before a race can put you at risk of soreness, so plan to receive one at least 48 hours before your event. If you are just beginning massage therapy, your first treatment should take place at least two weeks before a race.

Arrive hydrated.

Ensure you prepare for your massage by sipping plenty of water before the appointment to be certain that you are well hydrated. Arriving dehydrated to your treatment can cause your fascia and muscles to stiffen, which can lead to a less comfortable massage session.
 

Be prepared to move around.

While a sports massage can be relaxing after treatment, during your session, you will likely experience movement and physical interaction with your massage therapist. Ensure that you wear loose clothing to make movements and treatment of the affected area easier. To further encourage your recovery, follow the guidance of your therapist and complete additional recommended exercises at home.

The benefits of remedial massage at our Chatswood & North Sydney clinics

Correcting postural issues.

Common causes of neck, shoulder, and back pain include poor posture, which puts stress on the body. Our massage therapists can help to design a treatment plan that addresses postural issues, lengthens, and stretches muscles to relieve tension, and helps to realign your body.

Increasing joint mobility and flexibility.

Some symptoms of chronic and acute conditions such as arthritis, shoulder pain, sciatica, and overusing muscles are caused by muscles tension around the joints. Our therapists can tailor a massage to help relieve stiffness, discomfort, and decreased flexibility while improving joint strength, stability, and mobility.

Reducing stress.

A remedial massage can help to reduce stress in the body by affecting neurohormones that regulate behaviour and emotions. Endorphins release, while cortisol levels decrease, which results in a mood-enhancing effect that can reduce some of the symptoms of depression and anxiety, increase energy levels, and improve sleep.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long is a remedial massage appointment?

 

How long your appointment is will depend on your chosen treatment and the severity of the issues. Generally, if you're not sure what kind of appointment you need, your remedial massage therapist will be able to tell you after you've discussed your condition. There are three types of appointments available in Sydney with Infinite Health, at our Chatswood & North Sydney remedial massage clinics:

 

60-minute appointments

Allows for treatment on two to four muscle groups, depending on the severity of the issue.

 

90-minute appointments

Ideal for patients with more complex issues or those who want more time spent on specific muscle groups. 90-minute appointments are also most appropriate for those who have not had a massage in a long time, as any previous concerns may have worsened over time.

 

120-minute appointments

Best suited to patients requiring a full body massage therapy treatment or extensive work on specific muscle groups. Also highly recommended for those who have put off a massage for extensive periods as any previous or neglected issues may have worsened over time.

 

What are the benefits of remedial massage?

 

Remedial massage therapy refers to a type of manual therapy that aims to relieve and treat muscles that are tense, damaged, knotted, or immobile. In many cases, remedial massage can be beneficial for pain relief, releasing tension, breaking up scar tissue, and generally just helping you to feel better and achieve optimal health! The different techniques used in remedial massage can increase blood flow and blood supply to muscles, allowing myofascial release, increasing mobility, and helping to improve flexibility. Similarly, the massage itself will encourage the release of endorphins and the decrease in stress hormones, which can improve your immune system's capabilities and overall well being.

 

What should I wear to my appointment?

 

We recommend wearing loose, comfortable clothing to your appointment with one of our remedial massage therapists. Ensure that your clothes are unrestricting, to allow for your therapist to provide manual therapy to the affected areas.

 

How many massage sessions will I need?

 

The number of massage therapy sessions needed will come down to your condition, injury, and how your appointment plays out. After your first remedial massage session, your therapist will discuss all concerns, and provide advice on how many sessions may be needed and what you can do between sessions.
