Remedial Massage Toowoomba

Remedial Massage

Have you been experiencing muscular aches and pains? Do you suffer from arthritis, neck or lower back problems?  These are just some of the symptoms that can be addressed with remedial massage.

Remedial massage is also effective in managing sports injuries and frozen shoulder, whiplash, spondylitis (stiff joints on your spine, neck and pelvis) and fibrositis (inflammation of connective tissue, usually in your back).

Whether you need a massage to address current pain, or use it as a preventative treatment, your massage therapist will tailor specific massage techniques that are effective for your body.

Some techniques used during remedial massage might include:

  • Myofascial massage to restore body alignment
  • Scalp massage to release tension
  • Trigger point therapies for sore knotted muscles
  • Muscle energy techniques, a gentle method of releasing tight muscles and tendons
  • Manual lymphatic drainage for detoxification process to treat Lymphedema, particularly after breast surgery.

Manual lymphatic drainage massage is a gentle whole body treatment that relaxes the nervous system and aids the body’s immune system.  This is achieved by manually moving the lymph from the glands at the neck, armpits and groin through the body.

Lymphatic drainage also helps to detoxify the body by transporting metabolic wastes, excess water, bacteria and toxins.

It is highly recommended for:

  • The physically inactive
  • On-going tiredness
  • Excess fluids
  • Lymphedema for example after breast surgery
  • Those prone to sore throats, colds and infections and those with low immunity
