How Often Should I Come For A Massage?
In a perfect world, you should get a massage every week. However, if time does not allow, plan a massage once a month. If you are experiencing pain, for example; in your shoulder, lower back or hamstring, you may want to get a few massages until you gain better mobility in those areas. Your massage therapist will recommend when you should return for your next session. If you’ve received enough pain relief from several massage sessions and you feel you are functioning at your best, schedule your follow-up massage appointment next month.
Let’s say you have chronic pain underneath your shoulder blade. You may need three massages over the course 10 days until the pain is under control. View massages as a maintenance tactic in managing your health and stress levels.
