What Should I Expect From A Remedial Massage Session?
Your initial session will start by your therapist asking you about the specific muscular issue you are experiencing and take a history of any other issues you have experienced in the past.
They may then do some assessment and evaluation to assist in deciding what the best course of treatment will be.
Your Remedial Massage Therapist will then use a variety of massage techniques to relax and release your muscles, but will always work within your pain tolerance and tailor the treatment to your individuals needs.
Remedial massage can also help reduce your stress and anxiety by giving a remedial-style relaxation massage as well.
