What is a remedial massage?

A remedial massage and myotherapy massage are a great, relaxing way to help improve pain in your body - and feel great! We recommend remedial massage for basic complaints like sore muscles or achiness but this treatment really shines if your issue is chronic, injury-related or sports-related.

Related Remedial Massage Treatments and Services

We offer a range of other massage treatments and services including:

Myotherapy

In a myotherapy session, you can expect some initial assessments both in the form of questions about your movement and injury history and the type of pain you are experiencing. There will also be some orthopaedic testing, all to understand the origin of the underlying problem. Learn more about the difference between remedial massage and myotherapy here.

Sports Massage

We can assist with improving any pain associated with sports strains, or sports injuries. 

Injury plans

If you have been injured and need a return to sport or work plan (depending on your injury) we can help. Give us a call on 07 3367 0337 or book online here.

Techniques used during remedial massage

We use a number of different massage techniques at Shift at Brisbane Natural Health including:

  • Muscle and joint testing
  • Mobility and range testing
  • Specific massage techniques
  • Myofascial release
  • Soft tissue work
  • Deep tissue massage
  • Lymphatic drainage massage (not myotherapy)
  • Reflexology (not myotherapy)
  • Trigger point release
  • Joint mobilisations (not remedial massage)
  • Strapping (not remedial massage)
  • Dry needling
  • Cupping.

A remedial massage therapist has studied massage, including hands-on techniques, physiology and muscular anatomy. It is possible in Australia to get a certificate in massage in just 6 months. But we require our massage therapists to have a minimum of an Advanced Diploma in massage (usually 1 1/2 years in a reputable institution) to ensure they have the right background training to help our patients. And they all have great results working with people like you!

How remedial massage works to ease pain

Massage Brisbane

Remedial massage and myotherapy massage is recommended for basic complaints like sore muscles or achiness but really shines when the issue is chronic, injury-related or sports-related. At Shift at Brisbane Natural Health, our massage therapist team assess the cause of pain or dysfunction and work with you to improve your health over time. 

During your initial remedial massage or myotherapy massage appointment, you’ll be assessed by your practitioner. Your therapist will also ask you specific questions about your condition to determine what the best treatment will be for you. You’ll also receive an exercise and rehabilitation program if needed to help get you feeling good as soon as possible.

After your visit

After your visit, you can expect to feel relaxed and calm. You may experience some muscle soreness in the next day or two but that is your body doing its job to heal from the injury/ies you came into the clinic for. You will feel amazing in a couple of days after the treatment!

FAQs.

Both remedial massage therapists and myotherapists can help you with tight muscles, pain and discomfort. If you have a specific or chronic condition, often seeing an Myotherapist first will help you gain a better insight to the cause of the issue and what you need to do to fix it. Myotherapists are often better at finding the cause of the issue and identifying if you need to be referred to other therapists. This is particularly helpful if you have a chronic condition that is slow to respond to treatment.

If a relaxation massage is what you’re after then a Remedial Massage Therapist is the way to go. We usually find even in our relaxation massage patients there is some tightness and knots to work out – so it ends up being a combination of both!

When your body has been out of sorts for a while, there can be a little tension as we try to release it. Sometimes deep fascia work and specific releases may be uncomfortable, momentarily. Your therapist will always check with you throughout the treatment to make sure any discomfort is manageable.

Our therapists are trained in advanced techniques that use the minimum amount of pressure to exert the maximum amount of results.

A one-hour Remedial Massage appointment with a senior practitioner is $125. A Myotherapy appointment is $125 for a one-hour session. 

Health fund rebates are available – please check with your health fund provider before your appointment.

Yes! Rebates will all the major health funds are available for both myotherapy massage and remedial massage provided that you have extras cover. Check with your fund to make sure you’re covered.

We have HICAPS so you can claim for your massage on the spot. 

Until we assess you and give you your first treatment, it can be difficult to know what your body will need. For most chronic conditions, some relief will occur after the first session, but it will take at least 3-4 sessions to really begin to shift the problem. As you progress through your treatment (and do your at-home care) your appointments will become further apart and your body will feel better and better.

Yes, remedial massage is a safe (and relaxing) treatment to have if you are pregnant and in the second and third trimesters. If you are pregnant and have any questions about our massage services, please give us a call on 07 3367 0337.

At Shift at Brisbane Natural Health, we only employ registered, qualified massage therapists that have a minimum of 5 years of experience. The term ‘massage therapist’ can be used quite loosely, many therapists will practice after a 6-month course.

Our therapists have extensive training in the physiology of the human body and experience to find the root cause of the issue. This means you’ll need fewer treatments and will be on a maintenance program sooner than you would with remedial massage alone.
