How often should I schedule an appointment?
The best time for you to get a massage may depend on the type of massage you get and what your stress and activity levels are. Consult with your massage therapist to find out what the best schedule will be for you.
If you healing from an injury or you have chronic pain, you may want a massage as often as every 2 to 4 weeks. To relax and manage stress on your body, monthly massages may be recommended. It is not recommended to be massaged more than once a week.
