While often mistaken for deep tissue massage, remedial massage is intended as a more targeted treatment for pain and injury. Therapists that employ remedial massage are required to study for longer than many of their colleagues and must thoroughly understand the way the body works and the tissues that they are treating.
While deep tissue massage is a whole-body treatment, remedial massage focuses on parts of the body that requires rehabilitation. Remedial massage first starts with a review of the muscles, ligaments, tendons and posture. Once the therapist understands the issues causing the injury or pain they will then perform a targeted massage of the area. While deep tissue massage requires firm pressure, the pressure used during the remedial massage will vary depending on what is best for treating the specific issue.
Finally, remedial massage is done with a goal in mind, like treating a knee, shoulder or back injury. This means that it will often be done over a series of sessions, where the therapist is constantly assessing the state of the patient and noting any improvements or deterioration. This allows them to adjust their treatment and give their patient the best possible chance of recovery.
