A remedial massage therapist is a type of massage therapist that specializes in remedial work, otherwise known as deep tissue therapy. The remedial therapist will work with muscles and tendons to release adhesions or scar tissue that has built up over time, often due to trauma or repetitive strain injuries. Remedial therapists are often used by athletes who have suffered an injury on the field. Still, they can also be employed by people who sit at a desk all day long.
