Massage Therapy

A Remedial Massage not only relieves tension and anxiety, it can be incorporated with a deep tissue massage and soft tissue manipulation. This works deep into the muscles to support healthy muscle growth, improve mobility, ease pain, tension and reduce the risk of injury.

Remedial Massage is used to locate and repair painful areas of the body, speeding up the healing process. These painful areas can radiate pain throughout the rest of the body; Remedial Massage aims to locate these points, whilst giving patients relief from their symptoms and treating the problem.

At Health First Group, we only employ the best massage therapists to give our patients brilliant, long lasting results.

Frequently Asked Questions

What should I expect?

Our therapists understand that each client has a different set of needs. Be it pre- or post-event, during recovery or maintenance, our team knows how to look after your aches and pains. Your first consultation will start with a brief discussion about your goals and the type of massage that you require, to understand what you want to achieve

How often should I have a Remedial Massage?

Ideally, a maintenance remedial massage should be performed regularly. Maintenance massage is usually recommended on a monthly basis, or at times quarterly (so around four massages per year), depending on the individual.

Will I be sore after my massage?

It is quite common to be sore after one of our remedial massages, we recommend drinking plenty of water and having a warm shower after your session. If you continue to suffer discomfort, please contact your local therapist or clinic for advice.

Is Remedial Massage the same as a Deep Tissue massage?

A Deep Tissue Massage is a whole-body treatment. Remedial Massage aims to treat specific parts of the body that require rehabilitation.

What should I wear to my appointment?

Depending on the primary technique your therapist uses, you may or may not need to undress. For a full body massage you will undress to your underwear. Your massage therapist will give you privacy to undress to your underwear. You will be draped with a towel at all times, except the area being worked on.

Is there any preparation required prior to my appointment?

No preparation is required.

Does Remedial Massage hurt?

Your massage therapist will continually check on you and ensure that the level of pressure and treatment applied to the muscle is comfortable. While you may feel a little tender from treating the area, you should feel the benefit of greater mobility in the affected areas within a day or so.

How many sessions of Remedial Massage will I need?

Most people feel relief from Remedial Massage after just one session, however it may take 3-4 sessions to feel the full benefits. The amount of sessions needed varies from each patient and the condition they need treated.

Do you treat pregnant women?

Yes! We are able to treat pregnant women in our clinics, be sure to let your admin know when booking an appointment. If necessary, your therapist will provide extra pillows and towels in order to treat you while on your side, rather than facedown.

Do you treat DVA Clients?

DVA doesn’t cover massage from a remedial massage therapist.
