Swedish Massage generally is associated with relaxation type massage and is usually performed in Day Spas or Beauty Salons.
Swedish Massage Therapists cannot offer rebates via HICAPS as it is not recognized by the major Health Funds such as Medibank, BUPA, AHM, NIB, HCF etc.
The major difference between Remedial Massage and Swedish Massage are the following:
Remedial Massage is a Diploma Qualification where is Swedish is a certificate
You can claim via HICAPS with Remedial Massage where as with Swedish Massage you cannot.
Remedial Massage takes a very clinical view on the session with the client with the aim to design a specific treatment plan tailored to the individual to assist with an injury, accident, trauma or the likes, where as Swedish is more suited to relaxation.
It is quicker to obtain the Swedish Massage Certificate than the Diploma in Remedial Massage.
