What Is Remedial Massage Therapy?
Remedial Massage Therapy involves the assessment and treatment of the soft tissues of the body (muscles, connective tissue, fascia and tendons) to reduce pain, assist with the rehabilitation of injury, or to enhance a person’s health and well-being. Treatments are tailored to each individual based on your assessment findings and what you would like to get out of your session.
Compared to a massage you may receive at a salon, massage parlour or day spa, a Remedial Massage Therapist is required to undergo a higher level of training and extensive supervised clinical hours to provide them with a more comprehensive knowledge of anatomy and the pathophysiology of injury and illness.
Remedial Massage Therapists must be accredited and registered with a professional governing body. They must maintain appropriate insurances, provide evidence-based professional treatments, and work in compliance with specific standards of practice and ethical guidelines. They are also required to maintain up to date skills with ongoing professional development.
Due to this higher level of training and accountability, services provided by a Remedial Massage Therapist are eligible for private health rebates.
