Deep Tissue Massage in South Melbourne- Results Based Physio

Remedial Massage Therapy

What is
Remedial Massage Therapy?

Remedial Massage Therapy is defined as the rubbing and kneading of bodily soft tissue with the intention of reducing pain and the sensation of soft tissue restriction. Remedial Massage Therapy consists of a mixture of relaxation and deep tissue massage techniques to mainly address pain and sensitivity. The goal of Remedial Massageis to restore physical function, facilitate the healing of damaged and dysfunctional tissues in the body, and reduce stress hormones. 

At RBP we understand that humans need physical touch to begin the healing process, and that is why we have an emphasis on the ‘hands-on’ approach.

We believe that providing our clients with physical rehabilitation is not enough, and manual therapy such as fire cupping, deep tissue massage, joint adjustments, and dry needling are necessary for maximising recovery and restoring function (in combination with rehabilitation of course).


Who can
benefit from Remedial Massage Therapy?

If your body has any aches, pain, stiffness, tightness, fatigue, or you simply just want to destress and deload, Remedial Massage is for you.

At RBP we work with people from all ages and walks of life – from children through to the elderly, from your desk workers through to your professional athletes.

We work with anyone who fits the criteria of a body that is sore, stiff, tight, weak, injured or performing at sub-par.
