How Often Should I Get Massage Therapy?

We often encounter the common question, "How often should I get a massage?" The answer, much like the therapy itself, is highly individualized and depends on the specific goals you have in mind.




Understanding Your Goals

Maintenance Massage: For many of our valued clients, massage therapy serves as a crucial component of their overall well-being. If you're seeking maintenance therapy, addressing chronic issues such as headaches, neck pain, or back tension without any new injuries or concerns, our approach is tailored to keep your body functioning optimally.


Frequency for a Maintenance Massage: We recommend a monthly massage for maintenance situations. This frequency strikes a balance—enough to prevent chronic issues from worsening or flaring up.


Mending-Focused Massage: If your goal is to address an injury or treat an acute problem, our mending-focused massage therapy is designed to assist your body in the healing process. Following home care instructions is particularly vital in this scenario.


Frequency for a Mending Massage: When dealing with an injury or acute issue, we recommend weekly sessions for two to three weeks. A re-assessment at the end of this period guides the adjustment of frequency. If positive progress is noted, you may transition to bi-weekly sessions. Once your desired outcome is reached, we seamlessly guide you back into a monthly maintenance mode.

We emphasize the importance of proactive wellness measures rather than waiting until a problem arises. Much like regular maintenance for your car, routine upkeep through monthly massages helps you stay ahead of your body's needs. Waiting until you're in acute pain not only risks requiring more extensive treatment but can also be physically and financially draining. Our goal is to empower you to take an active role in your wellness journey, making routine upkeep an integral part of your self-care routine.


Clear communication is key to achieving the best results, and we encourage you to discuss your preferences and concerns with your massage therapist. No one more than you know how you are feeling. So make sure you are truly honest and give a clear message.
