That depends on why you are receiving massage. If it’s just for relaxation or health maintenance, once a month may be all you need, but you can get them more frequently if you like. Receiving massage on a regular basis will help to promote a healthy circulatory system, along with good posture. Massage also releases tension and pain in the muscles, allowing them to move more freely.
People who receive massage frequently tend to be more flexible and comfortable in their bodies, since they are maintaining a higher level of general health. Receiving massage can also be good for specific conditions, such as stress, and it may even be recommended by a doctor. Some very common comments from clients who come in a very regular basis are that they are more aware of their own health and how their body responds to stress, as well generally dodging whatever cold or virus that is traveling through town.
The frequency of some therapeutic work may be restricted by the type of work you are receiving. Deeper, more invasive work should not be repeated for 3 to 4 days. This allows the muscles sufficient time to respond to the work. Because deeper work can sometimes cause varying levels of discomfort, you likely won’t want to receive massage for several days. When there is chronic muscle tension or injury, there are usually adhesions (bands of painful, rigid tissue) in muscles, tendons, and ligaments. These adhesions can block circulation and cause pain, limited movement, and inflammation. Deep tissue massage works by physically breaking down these adhesions to relieve pain and restore normal movement. To do this, the I often use direct deep pressure or friction applied across the grain of the muscles. Muscles are being broken down so that they can return to a normal state by healing properly.
In these instances, frequency will depend on your ability to tolerate work on a regular basis and how we monitor your progress. It’s not uncommon for me to see someone twice a week before you experience progress, however, most cases are seen once a week. Ideally what we want to achieve is to lengthen the time between sessions while ensuring the treatments are holding and the body does not try to return to an unhealthy state.
