       When is the Best Time to have a Massage?

  Massage for chronic, longstanding conditions can be performed at any time. Ideally, your massage should be performed on a regular basis to promote mobility and improved function and to stop conditions from becoming problematic and painful.

  For acute or recent injuries, remedial massage is indicated 72 hours following an injury.

  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.
