Types of Massage Therapy at Movement Laboratory Leichhardt:

Remedial Massage uses different techniques to reduce muscular pain and help with rehabilitation. When muscles are tense, strained, torn, or have tendon damage, remedial massage uses long strokes, kneading, deep tissue, and rubbing to trace back to its origin and help increase blood flow to the tissues. It is an excellent tool to help manage chronic pain and tension caused by compromised posture and poor movement patterns.
