As suggested by the name, remedial massage is applied as a remedy. It’s similar to sports massage and not as intense as deep tissue massage. The idea behind remedial massage is to aid the healing of an existing injury. Unlike sports massage and deep tissue massage, when applying remedial massage, you apply only as much therapy as you feel is needed. You also wouldn’t work any more or less rapidly than is appropriate for the treatment of the patient’s condition. Remedial massage is a very in-demand service with great employment prospects, whether you decide to start your own practice or work in somebody else’s.
