How Often Should You Get a Massage?

Massage therapy can provide numerous health benefits – from reducing muscle stiffness, stress and anxiety and providing relief from chronic pain. It helps to improve the circulation of the blood through the body and provide a better range of motion.

How Often Should I Get a Massage?

If you are of overall good health, do not have any major health issues or stress your body through vigorous exercise, using a professional massage as a means to maintain a healthy body and provide overall relaxation is a good idea. Getting a message once a month is generally recommended. However, if in between appointments you experience pain, fall or have muscles that spasm or tighten up, make an appointment at the onset of these issues. Many times, waiting for the "next appointment" only aggravates the pain or discomfort you are feeling or causes additional damage.

The Cost of Massage

How often you get a message can also depend on the price. Depending on the area of the United States in which you live, the price of an hour-long massage can vary. While many may consider a massage to be a luxury expense or think that appointments are expensive, regular messages can be used as a preventative method to ward off health issues that could result in expensive doctor's visits.

Why Go to A Professional?

While receiving a massage from your husband, wife or partner may feel wonderful and is encouraged to create a healthy bond, going to a licensed, professional therapist is best when using massage to maintain health and receive its many benefits. Massage therapists are trained in healing movements and muscle treatments as well as knowing what to feel for when massaging. They are focused on healing the body and massaging so that the body receives the relief it may need. Always talk to your massage therapist prior to the appointment to let them know of muscle soreness, stress or anxiety that you may be experiencing.
