How can massage help you?
Looking for a good massage to help you feel better, or to complement treatment from one of our other practitioners to help you get back on track faster?
Remedial massage tailored to you, involves treatment of the soft tissues and can be gentle or strong, soft or deep to potentially address a range of issues. A few things to know, each massage therapist has a unique style though most appointments will follow a similar structure. If during a treatment you need the pressure changed just let the practitioner know as each body is different.

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.
