What Is Remedial Massage?
Remedial Massage is applied using physical pressure directly to skeletal muscle and other tissues of the body, this pressure can be applied using elbows, hands, fingers, forearms or a device. The purpose of remedial massage is to lengthen tight muscles, release adhesions in fascia, relieve pain and symptoms and maintain a healthy body for a pain free life.
Remedial massage clients are generally treated whilst lying on a massage table or sitting in a massage chair depending on the clients situation and comfort level.
Our remedial massage therapists at MCNT | Remedial Massage Melbourne focus on acute and chronic conditions that can result from any activity in life but particularly repetitive activities. We treat clients from all different industries including office workers, dancers, sports people, performers and musicians.

HEADACHES | Remedial Massage Melbourne
It seems like everyone is affected by headaches these days. They are so common that we barely notice them anymore, but they are there and they sometimes stop us from performing our daily activities. We may blame hangover, stress, depression, workload, or little sleep to be the underlying cause of headaches; however, there are many other factors such as muscular tension, postural overload, imbalance of the nervous system, current or past injury, or pain referral that can trigger a tension headache. The good news is that many forms of headaches can be easily treated using remedial massage for headaches.
When used in conjunction with various stretching and targeted exercises, remedial massage can greatly minimize the discomforts associated with tension headaches and migraines. Remedial massage therapists use a number of techniques such as trigger point therapy, deep tissue massage, and myofascial release to relieve muscular tension, alleviate pain and prevent headaches.
A typical remedial massage for headaches treatment plan starts with a detailed full-spine assessment, X-rays, MRI scans, and a detailed medical history, to access the root cause of the problem. A comprehensive treatment plan is prepared depending on the outcomes of the assessment. The treatment plan may include:
- using different massage techniques to relieve the muscle tension
- adjustment and mobilizations to align the spine
- stress reduction techniques to relieve muscle tension
- stretching exercises to strengthen posture and spinal function
- post massage follow up
- dietary advice to ensure the body is getting enough nutrients and optimum hydration
One remedial massage treatment session is all you need for normal stress-related headaches, but for a more severe and persistent migraine, you need a tailor-made ongoing treatment plan for your long-term headache management and overall health and well-being.
Although not a cure for all headaches, remedial massage for headaches certainly plays a big role in reducing the pain, discomfort, and duration associated with common headaches and migraine.
