We often hear the saying, “no pain, no gain”, however this isn’t always the case. Painful and aggressive deep tissue massage isn’t always the most effective or comfortable form of treatment. If you are already suffering some kind of muscle, nerve or joint pain, it’s natural to expect that their will be some discomfort when treating the cause of the problem, however it’s interesting that many clients comment on how good it feels to finally have a therapist identify the epicentre of the problem and work with precision throughout the affected area. A skilled remedial massage practitioner should be able to work deeply into tight muscle areas and with the right techniques, be able to release the tissues with minimal pain, thus providing the greatest relief and improvement without an adverse reaction. Your feedback and communication throughout the treatment is also appreciated.
