Remedial Massage Therapy Mandurah
Remedial massage is a complementary therapy which aims to treat muscles that are damaged, knotted, tense or not contracting properly. It is useful for a number of problems that affect the muscles, tendons and bones. If you’re looking for a remedial massage in Mandurah, visit us at Falcon or Lakelands today!
Remedial massage is used to locate and repair damaged areas of the body and speed up the body’s own healing processes. The pressure applied in this healing treatment can either be strong and deep or gentle and shallow, depending on the problem. Problems with the muscles can trigger or radiate pain to other parts of the body. Remedial massage aims to trace the original reason for the pain, tackling both the cause of the problem and the symptoms.
Our Mandurah remedial massage service can stimulate the blood supply, make joints more mobile, and help to repair damaged tissues. The therapist will aim to balance the length, tone and tension of muscles and tendons, which restores the correct position of the bones, increases blood flow and helps heal injuries. Easing and stabilising the muscles can improve problems such as headaches, abdominal pain, low back pain and sciatic pain.

Myofascial cupping therapy is another massage style physiotherapists employ. It is a form of trigger point therapy and myofascial release (mobilisation of the fascia). This therapy mixes massage and stretching techniques with the use of pressurised cups. Soft tissue is suctioned inside the cups, allowing fluid movement and nutrient supply to the tissues. The movement of fluid detoxifies, stimulates, and increases range of motion. The final goal of cupping therapy is to promote better health by loosening soft tissue and improving circulation.
Dry Needling is another treatment technique that your massage therapist may incorporate to help with muscle relaxation, relieve muscle pain and restore normal muscle function. Dry needling is a treatment technique that uses micro-fine, single use, stainless steel needles to relive pain and tension. These needles measure around 0.25mm in diameter. It is known as “dry needling” because the needles used do not inject any fluid into the body. The result is that myofascial trigger point relaxes and the referred pain ceases with some patients experiencing instant results.
Trigger point therapy is a soft tissue technique that works to release painful tension in muscles and fascia which is basically a really sore point in a muscle when you push on it or what most people would refer to as a “knot”. Firm pressure is applied and released by the massage therapist in sequence.
Deep Tissue is a massage technique used to treat musculoskeletal issues. Your massage therapist will apply sustained pressure using slow, deep strokes to target the deeper layers of muscles and connective tissues. Deep tissue is also used to treat muscle pain and stiffness. The technique encourages blood flow which helps to loosen tight muscles and relax trigger points that cause knots and pulled muscles. This makes deep tissue massage great for rehabilitation and recovery from exercise or physical stress and strain.
Myofascial release is a therapy technique used in massage. The technique is focused on pain that comes from myofascial tissue – the touch covering that wrap, connect and support the muscles. It is a hands on therapy technique involving gentle massage. Applying gentle and sustained pressure to the fascia eases the tightness of the muscles and helps eliminate pain and restore motion. This sustained gentle pressure will ultimately allow the fascia to become longer and less tense. As the fascia becomes less tense the muscle pain decreases. This allows the body to relax more.
Swedish Massage is one of the most commonly offered massage techniques. Its sometimes called a classic massage. The technique aims to promote relaxation by releasing muscle tension. Swedish massage is gentler using long strokes, kneading, friction, taping, vibration and suited for people interested in relaxation and tension relief.
