How Regularly Should You Have a Massage?
A new injury or acute condition can often be resolved within a few treatment sessions.
However, chronic and long-standing conditions will often require a series of treatments to return the area to its normal function. This will usually include a number of weekly massages and will gradually be spaced out in frequency until a maintenance stage is reached.
While everyone’s needs will be a little different depending on your lifestyle, regular massage works best. Ideally, a maintenance massage should be performed on a regular basis eg monthly to promote mobility and improved function and to stop conditions from becoming problematic and painful.
