Acacia Well-Being offers quality therapeutic remedial, sports, relaxation, Thai and deep tissue massage therapies to relieve pain and promote healing of damaged tendons and muscles. Our Massage Therapist can also provide needling and cupping therapies.
Remedial massage therapy is the treatment and assessment of pain and dysfunction. It involves the treatment of muscles, fascia (connective tissue), ligaments and tendons which are prone to overuse, overloading, shortening or lengthening and this can produce all kinds of aches, pains and injuries. A client’s symptoms are assessed via a range of different methods including posture, biomechanical, range of movement, and neural tests. These tests help identify the most likely cause of pain or injury.
This list is not indicative of all symptoms. Get in touch with our Acacia Well-Being team to discuss how we can best support you.
The benefits of massage therapy include:
The purpose of remedial massage Brisbane is to identify causes of pain and treat accordingly. Participation will be required by the client either in the testing phase, during treatment or in post treatment advice or all 3. It is therefore not a passive treatment but rather an active one where you will need to do as the therapist requests and provide feedback. Remedial work can at times be quite slow as techniques such as myofascial release and trigger point needs to be done slowly to achieve the best result. For clients used to receiving a general all over massage this can be an unexpected change.
Sometimes they may leave the treatment feeling as though they did not “get their full massage” and so it is important to understand that remedial is a treatment designed to focus on a few areas at a time.
