Remedial Massage is used for the treatment of various muscularskeletal injuries and problems, the list below is just a few that are commonly used.
“The act of natural healing by scientific manipulation of the soft tissues of the body, usually by the therapist’s hands, including movement, for a curative or therapeutic effect”
- Soft Tissue Mobilization (STM)
STM is a remedial massage technique using low-load, mid-duration forces applied in multi directions to improve mobility between overlying and adjacent connective tissue layers throughout the body
- Soft Tissue Release (STR)
The essence of this approach, is a method of applying pressure to a muscle at the same time the muscle is being stretched. This co-ordinated movement has a correcting effect on all muscular imbalances, including injured areas where scar tissue has formed.
The “secret” to the success of this technique is that it’s not just another way of manipulating your muscles—it’s a way of communicating with your nervous system.
- Muscle Energy Technique (MET)
MET is an advanced form of stretching applied my a skilled practitioner.
- TriggerPoint Therapy
Trigger-Point (TrP) Definition:
“A focus of hyperirritability in a tissue that, when compressed, is locally tender and, if sufficiently sensitive gives rise to referred pain and tenderness and sometimes referred autonomic phenomena and distortion of proprioception. Types include myofascial, cutaneous, fascial, ligamentous and periosteal trigger points”.
