Remedial Massage on Bribie Island
Benefits of Massage
Whether you have a condition or not, clients can still expect benefits from any massage style (Relaxation or Remedial). More often than not, most people are more relaxed at the end of the session, physically and mentally. If you are having a session because of pain, typically the pain or discomfort that you had before you came in has decreased to a manageable level or gone completely. Depending on your desired result of the treatment, massage can increase your flexibility for your body and improve your general circulation. Massage generally also helps your lymphatic systems circulation as well.
All treatments are tailored to the individual client to help you get to where you need or want to be. Melissa doesn’t believe that everyone needs the same thing, we are all individuals and therefore the treatment should resemble that also. There is always a clarification at the start of the session to ensure both the client and the therapist are on the same page for that specific treatment or while creating a treatment plan.

What actually is Remedial Massage Therapy?
Remedial Massage Therapy is gaining momentum in the clinical world. It is not just considered a treat or pleasure like relaxation massage. Remedial is focused on helping to treat a condition or problem in particular, sometimes even focusing on a couple of areas. Remedial Therapy has aided people suffering from numerous conditions, some including:
- Pregnancy related pain or injury
- Back and neck pain
- Stress, anxiety and or Insomnia
- Chronic Pain and fatigue
- Joint Deterioration
- Postural weaknesses
In order to treat clients effectively, therapists need to assess the posture of the client, their ranges of motion and a detailed understanding of what happened to create this pain or problem and the possible activities that bring on this pain and discomfort. Then soft tissue techniques like trigger pointing, deep tissue and stretching are utilised to relax the appropriate muscles and connective tissue. Allowing the muscles to relax and minimise the load on the structural system, which also helps to reduce further pain. Book online now for your remedial session.
Melissa has received numerous testimonials via the Facebook page. You can read all of them there, or alternatively you can read some of them below.
“I have had Melissa at a lot of events where she offers 10 minute massages for event attendees at a very reasonable price. She is just awesome and everyone who receives a massage from her are thoroughly relaxed and spoilt. I highly recommend her for any event – she is just awesome.”
“I have known mel and have been treated by Mel for many years. She is very knowledgeable about the body and is wonderful! Will always trust her magical hands that have always made my pain disappear and how to reduce the pain in the future.” Terri Lehmann
“I had a sore neck and had multiple treatments that hadn’t helped before seeing Melissa. The first thing I noticed was how knowledgeable Melissa is, she was asking questions nobody else had asked, her assessment was very thorough. She didn’t just focus on one point and send me home, it was much more of a holistic approach. She explained how certain parts were related, which I found quite fascinating. The massage itself was pure heaven and I could feel the difference, this was a proper, professional massage. My shoulders were rock hard before and like marshmallows afterwards. After a few days I noticed the absence of pain in my neck, which meant no more hot/cold compresses, anti-inflammatories etc. It was just ‘loose’, something I hadn’t felt in a long time. Some people just massage, but Melissa has a magic healing touch.”
