Remedial massage and musculoskeletal therapy in Brisbane for lifestyle ailments, injuries and other common conditions
What is remedial massage therapy?
Remedial massage therapy is the physical manipulation of superficial and deeper layers of muscles and connective tissues. Our skilled and qualified remedial massage therapists in Brisbane will work on your body with pressure, typically using their fingers, hands, elbows or forearm. Depending on the nature of your condition they may concentrate their efforts on a range of tissues, including muscles, tendons, ligaments, fascia, skin, joints or other connective tissue, as well as lymphatic vessels.
Myofascial release is a soft tissue therapy that focuses on relaxing the deep tissues of the body, providing longer lasting and effective relief for the client. It uses slow and usually deep pressure to restore the proper health of the fascia.
What is musculoskeletal therapy?
Musculoskeletal therapy treats symptoms, relieves pain, and identifies and addresses contributing factors and underlying causes of musculoskeletal conditions. Our musculoskeletal therapists in Brisbane have the ability to effectively assess a presenting musculoskeletal condition, identify its causes/contributing factors and to develop a holistic plan of management that will provide an effective result. Exercise prescription, diet/nutritional measures, postural awareness, as well as hands-on techniques may be employed.
