Enjoy Massage in Melbourne for Pain Relief

At Life Chiropractic Studio, we don’t just offer chiropractic services – we can also provide you with a pain relieving remedial massage. You might be wondering, what’s the difference between remedial massage in Melbourne and other kinds of massage? Remedial massage is a kind of massage in Melbourne that has a very specific purpose. During a session of remedial massage, the practitioner will assess and treat parts of the body such as muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues. The intention is to help heal the body after an injury, including reducing the sensation of pain and restoring movement.

What Are the Benefits of Remedial Massage in Melbourne?

Remedial massage has a myriad of benefits for your body, including:
  • Stimulating blood supply
  • Increasing mobility of joints
  • Repairing damaged tissues
  • Healing injuries
  • Removing blockages
  • Repairing damaged cells and scar tissue
In addition, the work by the therapist will balance length, tone and tension of muscles and tendons.

Is Remedial Massage in Melbourne Painful?

Remedial massage in Melbourne can be slightly painful, as the therapist needs to work more deeply into your muscles and the connective tissues to restore mobility. Therefore they will be using more pressure than in your typical relaxation massage. If you’re experiencing a lot of pain during a remedial massage, be honest about this with your therapist and communicate clearly. They should be able to work a little more softly if you have a lower pain threshold. It’s all about finding the best compromise between working deeply enough for therapeutic effect and the amount of pain you feel in the process. Of course, everyone’s pain threshold is different, so while some people may find remedial massage in Melbourne painful, other people may not be bothered by it at all. If you have any concerns about the pain you might feel during your appointment, don’t hesitate to mention this to your practitioner.

How Often Do I Need Remedial Massage?

If you’re an active person involved in intense activity on a regular basis, you will likely need more regular massages. High stress levels add tension to the body and also necessitate more frequent sessions. How your body responds to the massage sessions will be individual, so for the best results, you should discuss massage frequency with your massage therapist. Some people need maintenance massages every 4 to 6 weeks, while others require a session weekly or every fortnight.
