What is remedial massage?

Remedial massage is the systematic assessment and treatment of the muscles, tendons, ligaments and connective tissues of the body to assist in rehabilitation, pain and injury management.

Remedial massage aims to reduce or eliminate pain, and restore normal function of muscles and joints. It can help increase joint mobility and flexibility, stimulate the lymphatic system and promote blood flow, particularly to injured areas.

Remedial massage therapy is one of the best known antidotes for stress and can relieve symptoms of conditions aggravated by stress.



A form of complimentary medicine and a key component of traditional Chinese medicine (TCM). Acupuncture entails stimulating specific points of the body, usually with fine sterile needles to alleviate pain or help treat various health conditions. Pressure, suction (cupping), heat, electrical stimulation or scraping (gua sha) may further enhance the effects.

At Defined Health in Ballina the acupuncture we practise is mostly neuro musculoskeletal acupuncture on a wide range of conditions including but not limited to: headaches/migraines, sciatica, back pain, neck pain, cramping, frozen shoulder, carpal tunnel, knee pain, insomnia, jaw/face pain, sprains and strains.
