Massage Consultation

An initial consultation will include identifying reasons and goals for having a massage, the current physical condition and the patient’s medical history.

Remedial massage aims to assess and treat the connective tissues of the body, assisting with rehabilitation, pain and injury management.  Relaxation massage, however, is designed to reduce stress and tension of the individual by promoting calmness and deep breathing.

Our massage therapists may use a combination of modalities in a consultation to effect healing, including:

  • Musculoskeletal alignment – this is typically part of an initial assessment of a patient, and may reveal the root cause of a problem
  • Muscle manipulation – this includes soft and deep tissue massage
  • Dry Needling – this technique allows the therapist to increase blood flow and nullify trigger points
  • Stretching – specific stretching techniques are used to increase blood flow and reduce tension
  • Cupping – another technique that improves blood flow
  • Exercise – exercise can help to strengthen weak muscles and promote healing

Remedial Massage FAQs

What is the difference between massage and remedial massage?

There are a few key differences between massage and remedial massage. Massage is typically a relaxation technique that uses gentle, flowing strokes to help ease tension and stress in the body. Remedial massage, on the other hand, is a more targeted form of massage that uses specific techniques to treat muscular pain and dysfunction. The goal of remedial massage is to repair and rehabilitate the body, rather than simply providing relaxation. As such, it is often used in conjunction with other forms of physical therapy. 

Does my private health insurance cover remedial massage?

It depends on your particular insurance plan. Some plans will cover remedial massage, while others may only cover massage for relaxation purposes. It’s important to check with your insurance provider to find out what type of coverage you have for massage therapy. 

How often should I get a remedial massage?

The frequency of your remedial massages will depend on the nature and severity of your condition. In general, it is recommended that you have a massage once or twice a week for the first few weeks, and then reduce the frequency as your condition improves. However, it is always best to consult with your healthcare provider to determine what the best frequency is. 

What should I do after a massage?

There are a few things you can do to promote recovery and maximise the benefits of your massage. First, drink plenty of water to help flush out toxins from your body. Second, avoid strenuous activity for the rest of the day, as this can lead to muscle soreness. Finally, be sure to give yourself time to relax and unwind after your massage. This will help your body to fully reap the benefits of the treatment. 

Is remedial massage painful?

No, remedial massage should not be painful. However, you may feel some discomfort during the treatment as your therapist works to release knots and tension in your muscles. This is perfectly normal and should dissipate as the treatment progresses. If you do experience any pain or discomfort during your massage, be sure to let your therapist know so they can adjust the pressure accordingly.

What should I tell my massage therapist?

Before your massage, it is important to communicate with your therapist about any health conditions or concerns you have. This will help them to tailor the treatment to your needs and ensure that you remain comfortable throughout. You should also let them know if you have any areas of particular tension or pain, as they will need to focus on these areas during the massage.
