What Is Remedial Massage?

Remedial massage focuses on the recovery and management of musculoskeletal conditions, injuries and dysfunctions to promote healing and restore optimal function in the body. Remedial massage can benefit individuals with a range of issues, including postural imbalances, repetitive strain injuries, sports injuries, chronic pain, and general musculoskeletal dysfunctions.

Remedial massage aims to:

  1. Reduce pain, discomfort, and muscular tension caused by injuries, chronic conditions, or musculoskeletal imbalances.
  2. By addressing specific dysfunctions, remedial massage helps to restore and improve range of motion, flexibility, and functional movement.
  3. Facilitate the recovery process by promoting tissue healing, improving circulation to injured areas and reducing scar tissue formation.
  4. Identify and address underlying factors such as poor posture or biomechanics that may be contributing to injuries or dysfunctions to help reduce future issues.

In addition to a detailed understanding of anatomy, physiology, biomechanics, confirmation and equine behavior, a remedial massage therapist must also understand pain, injuries and how they heal, compensation patterns, remedial movement and the physical demands of the clients’ desired future activities for their horse.

*Massage is not a substitute for Vet care. For the he best and safest results, work with the guidance of your clients’ Vet.
