What is Remedial Massage Therapy? 

Remedial massage therapy is responsible for treating many conditions and injuries. Muscle pain and tightness can be released through physical manipulation of your body's tissue. Often relieving chronic pain, sciatica, frozen shoulder stiff neck & back, headaches, sports injuries or just the stresses and strains of everyday life.


Using a variety of therapeutic techniques, remedial massage is used to repair injured, knotted, tense, or stiff muscles. The remedial therapist will assess and identify which areas of the body require treatment, and use a range of massage-based techniques to improve muscle function

What does a Remedial Massage Therapist do? 

As a remedial massage therapist in Newcastle it's important to accurately assess each client and utilise the best massage techniques to aid in their recovery, promote health, help you maintain mobility, and eventually boost function and capacity to do all you enjoy. Working closely with each client is a vital element of the therapy experience.

As a remedial massage therapist it my responsibilities in determining the region of complaint through targeted assessment of movement and function, developing an extensive treatment plan, and knowing your intended objectives. 


At Sala Newcastle, each of my treatments are specific to the client's pain & injury and I am able to cater for both short term and long term injuries. In massage therapy we believe for every year the body has been in discomfort, pain or injury, that one month of dedicated treatment is needed. Therefore 7 years of tight neck and shoulders, we recommend 7 months of dedicated treatment to heal.








​Benefits of a Remedial Massage 

Compared to other types of soft relaxation massage, remedial massage is more intense. A comprehensive understanding of anatomy and physiology is acquired through lengthy training for remedial massage therapists. Injuries, especially soft tissue injuries, are prevented and treated using it. I am skilled at evaluating your body, tracking changes over time, and creating customised treatment plans for each patient. Therapeutic massage goes much beyond simple "feel-good" massage.

To address your injury, postural problems, or joint problems, specific procedures are applied. A comprehensive treatment strategy may include remedial massage performed in combination with other medical specialists like a physiotherapist. Remedial massages are ideal for tight neck and shoulders, sports injuries, muscle aches and pains and chronic pain.



The benefits include:

  • Reduced muscle tension reduced chronic pain symptoms

  • Improved blood circulation: Stimulates the circulatory system, promoting blood flow to the areas being treated. This aids in accelerating tissue repair and healing.

  • Stimulation of the lymphatic system

  • Improved mood/mental health: Improves mood, encourages relaxation, and eases pain by boosting levels of serotonin and dopamine.

  • Increased joint mobility: Your therapist will work on the muscles around your affected joint to help restore your movement.

  • Reduced stress

  • Improve the recovery of soft tissue injuries: helps assist in reducing pain from recent injuries and relieving pain from long-term illnesses.


Having a massage regularly will help prevent conditions from being more problematic and help prevent some of the pain.
