What’s the difference between remedial and deep tissue massage?

Authored by Shannon Bell .

Many people get confused when trying to figure out which type of massage is best for them.

A Remedial Massage is unique as it is a treatment from a Diploma Qualified Professional. In most cases, Remedial Massage treats a specific area in chronic pain or pain as a result of an injury. This will include an assessment of the muscles, ligaments, tendons and posture. Deep Tissue Massage is usually incorporated into a Remedial Treatment.

A Deep Tissue Massage is an overall massage to the deeper layers of soft tissue. It is often misconceived as ‘painful’ when this isn’t always the case. A DTM should be a relaxing, therapeutic experience whilst still achieving release of tension areas.

A session with Shannon will always include a combination of appropriate remedial techniques, deep tissue and therapeutic touch. It’s just as beneficial to have some relaxation. No two people will have the same needs and preferences.

At the end of the day, a Remedial Massage is always specific to YOU! When was your last massage?
