Review consultations can be 45 or 30 minutes long, depending on the complexity of the case, in order to progress you towards full function and independence.

You also have the possibility to have a 90 minutes consultation. If no 90 minutes appointments appear available, contact us.

What is Remedial Massage Therapy?

“Remedial Massage Therapy is performed to create favourable conditions for the body to return to normal health after injury.

It is defined by the premise that the treatment can reasonably reverse certain physical effects a patient may be presenting.

If a patient has suffered a moderate injury resulting in structural pain and/or loss of function, then remediation is required to reduce or eliminate pain and restore that function.

Remedial massage is designed to balance muscle/soft tissue length, tension, and tone; which will, in turn, promote the return to normal joint/capsular/bone position.

Furthermore, it increases the flow of blood and lymph, particularly in the injured areas, thus removing blockages, damaged cells, scar tissue and adhesion resulting from the injury.”

If you feel your issue needs a much more advanced approach, our onsite physiotherapist Enrico Massidda, can further assess your case and provide different treatments Physiotherapy treatments.
