Remedial Massage



What Is Remedial Massage?

Remedial massage is a healing treatment that can utilises all pressures – It can be Gentle or Firm, Shallow or Deep depending on your tolerance. When pain is present or there is muscle or tendon damage – muscles become impaired, shortened, knotted or tense, remedial massage provides an effective healing treatment to assist in alleviating these.


Remedial Massage is used to alleviate the symptoms as well as assist in healing the disorder – it works great in conjunction with Physiotherapy treatment for ailments and suitable Podiatry treatments for specified injury.


If you haven't ever experienced a quality remedial massage, we thoroughly recommend it.

What`s the Best Timing for an Inertia Remedial Massage? 

Inertia Remedial massage for chronic, long-standing conditions can be performed at any time. Ideally, your massage should be performed on a regular basis to promote mobility and improved function and to stop conditions from becoming problematic and painful. 

For acute or recent injuries, remedial massage is indicated 3-5 days following an injury and after rest and ice therapy has been performed to reduce and minimise any inflammation and swelling. If you have an acute injury it may be more beneficial to consult one of our Physiotherapists or Podiatrists for assessment prior to any remedial treatment. 

How Long Should You Book for an Inertia Remedial Massage? 

Remedial massage treatments for 30minutes, 45 minutes , 60 minutes. Generally, 30-minutes is sufficient time to treat one problem area, for example ,neck and shoulders. 45-60 minute appointments are sufficient for 2-3 areas, for example, lower back, neck and shoulders. 

What Frequency Works Best for an Inertia Remedial Massage? 

A new injury or condition can often be resolved within a few treatment sessions. However, a chronic and long standing condition will often require a series of treatments to return the area to its normal function. This will usually include a number of weekly massages and will gradually be spaced out in frequency until a maintenance stage is reached. 

While everyone`s needs are a different depending on your lifestyle, regular remedial massages work best. Ideally, a maintenance massage should be performed on a regular monthly basis to promote mobility and improved function and to stop conditions from becoming problematic and painful. 

For advice specific to your body’s needs, please ask your Inertia Remedial Massage Therapist how often you should have a massage for optimal function.
