How do I find a great Remedial Massage Therapist?

Everyone loves a great massage: it’s a safe and effective way to relieve stress and anxiety as well as manage many different medical conditions and injuries, including back and neck pain, headaches, constipation, and discomfort during pregnancy.

But it’s not always easy to find a great therapist.

Our Remedial Massage Therapists are qualified and excel in many areas, including remedial massage, sports massage, pregnancy massage and stress management. Our therapists regularly update their learning via continuing professional development.

Each practitioner has their own style of massage which they tailor for you and for their own body, however most treatments follow a similar framework. If at any time you need to adjust the pressure or ask any questions just let your practitioner know.


What is a remedial massage?
Remedial massage is the systematic assessment and treatment of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body to assist in rehabilitation, pain and injury management. Remedial massage is the application of a range of therapeutic techniques, used to treat muscles that are knotted, tense, stiff, or injured. The remedial massage therapist will assess and identify which areas of the body require treatment, and use a range of massage-based techniques to optimise muscle function.
What is the difference between massage and remedial massage?
The difference between a massage and a remedial massage is that a relaxation massage is focused on relaxation techniques to calm the nervous system which creates a natural healing response in the body. Whereas a remedial massage is intended as a more targeted treatment for specific pain and injury.
Does remedial massage hurt?
Remedial massage may hurt depending on the severity of the clients condition, and on the particular body part which is being treated. All treatments are different, and each client will respond differently to each technique and the amount of pressure applied. The massage therapist will always gain consent and feedback from the client as to which pressure is appropriate, and modify their treatment upon the requirements and preference of each client.
What can I expect from a remedial massage?

You can expect the therapist to perform an examination for your current condition, understanding your past history, current ailments, assess your postural range of motion and conduct a palpation assessment.

The therapist will communicate with you their findings and ask you questions to help understand your condition and what treatments you have had before. The therapist will discuss what the problem is, what they believe will help alleviate the issue, the duration and frequency of treatments needed to reduce or eliminate the problem and then the treatment styles and techniques that will be used.

The therapist might also give the client at home care such as stretching, exercises, heat or cool packs. Each client is specific and the therapist will treat accordingly.

You may feel sore for the next day or two after a massage, as treatment may increase inflammation in some areas. These symptoms will usually dissipate in 2-3 days time as your muscular tissue will usually release and reduce in tightness.

We aim for the best remedial massage outcomes at Step Into Health Care. Our therapists are fully registered, certified, insured and have years of experience dedicated to your wellbeing, health, and vitality.
