What is Remedial Massage?
Health insurer Medibank Private defines Remedial Massage as the systematic assessment and treatment of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body to assist in rehabilitation, pain and injury management.
It’s performed to create favourable conditions for the body to return to normal health after injury and is defined by the premise that the treatment can reasonably reverse certain physical effects a patient may be presenting.
If a patient has suffered a moderate injury resulting in structural pain and/or loss of function, then remediation is required to reduce or eliminate pain and restore that function.
Remedial massage is designed to
balance muscle/soft tissue length, tension and tone, which will in turn promote the return to normal joint/capsular/bone position
increase the flow of blood and lymph, particularly in the injured areas, thus removing blockages, damaged cells, scar tissue and adhesions resulting from injury.
A Kizhi is a poultice that is densely packed with herbal ingredients. The Kizhi is dipped in heated herbal oil throughout the treatment and massaged over the affected area improving circulation and reducing body stiffness and pain.
