What is Remedial Massage?

Remedial Massage is a therapeutic form of massage therapy designed to address and heal the musculoskeletal issues that plague your body. This specialised approach to healing employs a suite of techniques that relax muscle tension, knots, and imbalances that contribute to pain and mobility issues. At My Recovery Lounge, we harness the power of remedial massage to not only alleviate discomfort but to trigger your body’s innate healing capabilities, promoting long-term health and vitality.


The benefits of Remedial Massage are deeply impactful, extending well beyond mere relaxation. Our clients often report a significant improvement in a range of conditions, including reduced muscle tension, stress and pain, improved circulation, joint mobility and posture, and faster recovery from injuries.

  • Reduced Muscle Tension and Pain: Remedial Massage targets the root cause of muscle discomfort, providing immediate relief from chronic pain and tension.
  • Improved Circulation: Enhanced blood flow nourishes tissues and aids in removing toxins, leading to better overall health.
  • Increased Joint Mobility: Loosening tight muscles and tendons around your joints improves movement and flexibility.
  • Stress Reduction: The calming effect of massage therapy is known to lower stress levels, promoting mental clarity and emotional balance.
  • Speedier Recovery from Injuries: Remedial Massage stimulates the body’s healing processes, shortening the recovery time from muscle strains and sprains.
  • Improved Posture: Regular sessions help correct body alignment issues, reducing the strain on your muscles and joints.

Who Can Benefit?

Remedial Massage is for anyone and everyone – from the office worker plagued by neck and shoulder tension to the athlete seeking to enhance performance and recovery. It’s particularly beneficial for people experiencing:

  • Chronic pain conditions (such as arthritis or fibromyalgia).
  • Sports injuries or overuse injuries.
  • Postural imbalances.
  • Stress and anxiety-related issues.
  • Recovery from surgeries.
  • Limited range of motion.

Whether you want to address a specific physical concern or simply wish to maintain your overall well-being, our Remedial Massage services are tailored to meet your unique needs.

Techniques Used in Remedial Massage

Remedial Massage employs a variety of techniques designed to specifically address issues of muscle tension, injury, and discomfort. These methods promote healing, alleviate pain, and enhance muscle function. Here’s a brief overview of the techniques we often use in remedial massage.

Deep Tissue Massage

Targets the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue, using slow strokes and deep finger pressure to relieve tension and pain.

Myofascial Release

Focuses on releasing muscular shortness and tightness to promote flexibility and reduce restrictions on movement.

Trigger Point Therapy

Involves applying pressure to tender muscle tissues to relieve pain and dysfunction caused by muscle knots.

Muscle Energy Techniques (MET)

A form of stretching commonly used to normalise the length of muscles, improve muscle strength, and facilitate mobility in restricted joints.

Soft Tissue Mobilisation

Utilises specific techniques to break down or reduce adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue) and help realign tissue fibres.


Helps increase flexibility, reduce stiffness, and improve range of motion.

Joint Mobilisation

A manual therapy involving passive movement of a skeletal joint to reduce pain and increase functionality.

Lymphatic Drainage

A gentle massage technique that helps promote the natural drainage of the lymph, which carries waste products away from the tissues and toward the heart.

Each technique has its own method of application and can be used for different purposes, depending on your condition and the therapist’s assessment. Our Remedial Massage therapists often combine several of these techniques to tailor the treatment to your specific needs, ensuring a practical approach to muscle rehabilitation and pain relief.

Remedial Massage In Action

At My Recovery Lounge, we understand that the body functions as an interconnected system, where issues in one area can impact overall health and mobility. Our Remedial Massage therapy is designed to address a wide array of conditions affecting your musculoskeletal system, as follows.

Muscle Tension and Knots

Techniques such as deep tissue massage and trigger point therapy work to release the tension and knots that cause pain and stiffness.
