Suffering from pain, tightness or muscular tension throughout your body?
If so, remedial massage may be for you!

WHAT IS REMEDIAL MASSAGE?

Useful as both a method of relaxation and a treatment modality for pain, injuries and rehabilitation, remedial massage is an excellent addition for many lifestyles.
 

If you lead an active life – in your line of work or as an athlete or sportsperson – regular deep tissue massage, sports massage, or remedial massage therapy at our clinics in Chatswood, North Sydney, Sydney CBD and Mosman can help to release tension and minimise your injury risk.

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

Schedule your remedial massages carefully.

Ensure that you don’t schedule a remedial massage session too close to an event, especially if you are new to remedial massage. For example, having a remedial sports 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 sports massage therapy, your first sports massage treatment should take place at least two weeks before a race.

Arrive hydrated.

Ensure you prepare for your remedial 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 face and muscles to stiffen, which can lead to a less comfortable remedial massage session.
 

Be prepared to move around.

While a remedial massage can be relaxing after treatment, during your session, you will likely experience movement and physical interaction with your remedial 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 remedial massage therapist and complete additional recommended exercises at home.

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

Correcting postural issues.

Common causes of shoulder, back, and neck pain include poor posture, which puts stress on the body. Our remedial 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 remedial massage 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. We offer both remedial and sports massages in Sydney. There are three types of appointments available for Sydney remedial massage therapy with Infinite Health at our Chatswood, North Sydney & Sydney CBD clinics:

 

60-minute remedial massage appointments

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

 

90-minute remedial massage appointments

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


120-minute remedial massage 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 remedial massage for extensive periods as any previous or neglected issues may have worsened over time.

 

Some of our practitioners are trained in providing dry needling (with electrical stimulation) and myofascial cupping. They can perform remedial massage in one area whilst administering these complementary treatments in another area. Speak to your remedial massage therapist to see if this is suitable for you.

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 in Sydney can be beneficial for neck 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 the musculoskeletal system, 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 remedial massage appointment?

 

Depending on the area of treatment, you will be asked to remove your clothing but not underwear. This will allow your remedial massage therapist to access your problem areas and carry out an effective treatment. Your therapist will leave the room while you get undressed, lie on the treatment bed, and cover yourself with the large towel which we will provide. Your therapist will then re-enter the room. If you are uncomfortable with this, just let your therapist know and they will be more than happy to accommodate. In these instances, we recommend wearing loose, comfortable clothing to your appointment. Ensure that your clothes are unrestricting and the fabric is light, to allow for your professional remedial massage therapists to provide manual therapy to the affected areas.

How many massage sessions will I need?

 

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