Remedial Massage Services

Remedial massage focuses on locating and improving specific areas of dysfunction deep within your muscle tissue. Tension, knotting, muscle impingements, injuries and muscle damage can result in debilitating discomfort that prevents you from moving freely and enjoying the activities you love.

To help alleviate discomfort at its source and restore normal muscle function, we offer remedial massage services at Revolution Chiropractic. Because repetitive activities, aging, strenuous exercise, postural issues and spinal misalignment can contribute to muscular dysfunction, most populations can benefit from this healing therapy.

What To Expect With Remedial Massage

When most people think of massage, they imagine a relaxing, gentle treatment that alleviates stress and calms the body. Remedial massage is quite different. Unlike the majority of massage therapies, remedial massage utilizes firm pressure and various techniques to break apart muscular adhesions and alleviate tension.

Before your treatment, you and your therapist will discuss your lifestyle, health concerns, and areas of discomfort. This brief evaluation allows the therapist to determine which techniques are most appropriate for your massage. You’ll then be asked to lie comfortably on a massage table, where you’ll be covered with a large towel to protect your privacy and keep you warm.

During your treatment, your therapist will use a variety of massage techniques to relieve tension, lengthen muscle fibers, increase blood flow, and break apart deep adhesions. These techniques may include PNF stretching, trigger point therapy, myofascial release and dry needling, among others.

Health Benefits of Remedial Massages

Remedial massage is a healing therapy that provides a wide range of benefits for your entire body. Because remedial massage addresses the underlying source of discomfort, it not only treats the cause but also alleviates the symptoms. If you’ve suffered an injury or struggle with persistent pain, remedial massage can offer the following benefits:

Muscle Relaxation and Pain Relief
Remedial massage directly impacts the muscular system through applied pressure, stretching and various other techniques. As a result, you’ll experience tension relief, tissue lengthening, trigger point relief, reduced cramping and decreased discomfort associated with areas of muscular dysfunction.

Lymphatic and Circulatory System Improvements
Massage is highly regarded for its ability to improve circulation and lymphatic flow. As we release tension and increase blood flow to each treatment area, you’ll experience improvements in inflammation and pain. Increased blood flow can also expedite the healing of damaged and dysfunctional tissues, resulting in shorter recovery time from injuries.

Mobility Improvements
Muscle tension and impingements can result in reduced joint mobility and pain during movement. As we massage the muscle tissue around your joints, we improve circulation while relaxing tension and releasing impingements. As a result, you’ll experience improved range of motion and reduced joint discomfort.

  • Back and neck pain

Frequently Asked Questions

Remedial massage is designed to address specific areas of the body that suffer from muscular dysfunction as a result of tension, knotting, immobility or muscle damage. The aim of remedial massage is to locate and release adhesions deep within your muscle tissue.

Deep tissue massage, on the other hand, typically focuses on the body as a whole, using firm pressure that targets the deeper muscular layers. While your therapist may incorporate deep tissue techniques into a remedial massage, they are not the same type of therapy.

Soreness is common after a remedial massage — but in this case, being sore isn’t a bad thing! Most patients feel sore and somewhat tender for a few days following their treatment. We recommend drinking plenty of water after your massage as proper hydration can help alleviate muscle soreness. As your muscle health improves, the duration of the discomfort lessens and lessens, it is a good sign of your improvement.

Yes. You should avoid strenuous physical activity after your treatment as well as dehydrating beverages such as coffee and alcohol. We recommend allowing your body to rest for the remainder of the day after your massage, and if you’re feeling particularly sore, a warm bath or shower can help.
