If you’ve never been to remedial massage therapists before, you might wonder what you should expect.

The main goal is to make sure that you are fully comfortable with the entire experience so you can relax and get the maximum benefit from your time.

  1. On your first consultation, Matthew will take down some information about what is troubling you, what health conditions you may have, and what you would like to achieve with your massage.
  2. Depending on which areas are to be massaged, Matthew will leave the room to allow you to remove any clothes that are necessary and give you time to get on the bed and cover yourself. It is important that you don’t feel exposed at any time.


  3. Based on the findings from his questioning and findings from examination, Matthew will carry out his massage therapy that may involve a variety of massage techniques. Which ones he decides to use will depend on the condition and your goals.
  4. At all times, the degree of pressure that is used will be discussed with you. It is important that you feel comfortable to say if the pressure is too strong (or too light) at any time.


  5. At the end of the massage, Matthew will leave the room to allow you to get dressed. He will then discuss with you a plan of future treatment if required to allow you maintain the benefits or your massage and to reach your goals.

What is remedial massage?

Remedial massage is a confusing term because it is not a particular massage technique.

Remedial massage therapy is massage that is delivered to treat a problem or 'remediate' something.

The training for remedial massage involves learning a wide variety of techniques. That training includes when it is best to use each particular type of massage.

The different massage techniques allow your remedial massage therapists to tailor a specific treatment to suit the needs of the client, based on their current immediate, and long term goals. 

A common misconception is that remedial massage is painful. 

While some techniques can produce some discomfort, a remedial massage therapist will always work with the patient to establish their tolerance in order to help release tight soft tissues, without overwhelming the muscles.

This is another reason that clear communication is vital with your massage therapist.

Even firm massage can have relaxing effect even though some people may experience a momentary pain or discomfort with harder pressure. 

In other words, even deep tissue massage or sports massage can be quite relaxing depending on the recipient.

From gentle pressure to firm pressure, passive stretches and muscle activation, traction/distraction techniques, good Remedial Massage therapists have a range of tools at their disposal.
