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:
- Reduce pain, discomfort, and muscular tension caused by injuries, chronic conditions, or musculoskeletal imbalances.
- By addressing specific dysfunctions, remedial massage helps to restore and improve range of motion, flexibility, and functional movement.
- Facilitate the recovery process by promoting tissue healing, improving circulation to injured areas and reducing scar tissue formation.
- 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.
