Trigger Point, Remedial and Therapeutic Massage

Our Physiotherapists are extensively trained in different types of massage that can help in treating painful injuries and conditions. Have you been injured or are suffering from recurring pain? We at Refine Physiotherapy & Pilates can help.

What are the types of Massage?

Depending on what you present with and your symptoms, your clinician may decide for you which modality of treatment is the best course for your rehabilitation. Our therapists are all extensively trained in many different types of massage. Read on to find out which massage type may be the best choice for you.

Trigger Point Therapy

Trigger Point Therapy (TrPT) is a form of massage that involves the location and detection of Trigger Points (TrP) that are causing muscle tension and pain. The therapist will then “trigger point” the muscle until sufficient relaxation and lengthening of the muscle has been achieved.

The conditions that will benefit from this therapy are overuse or gradual onset. An example may be poor sitting posture at work which causes muscular tension to build up in the neck and shoulders.

Remedial Massage

Remedial massage is the objective assessment and treatment of the symptoms from a biomechanical dysfunction that has been found to be the cause of your presentation.

This common form of massage is also referred to as Deep Tissue Massage (DTM). Specific mobilisation techniques are utilised by the therapist to promote and restore normal function and movement.

Therapeutic Massage

This technique is designed to promote relaxation of the whole body.

Improvements in circulation, muscle tension and flexibility are also outcomes that can be achieved through this modality of massage.
