How often to get a massage

Frequency of massage is unique to the individual and depends on the person’s goals. If your main goal is relaxation, listen to your body. It will tell you when you need a massage. If your goal is more focused, a treatment plan can be created by you and your massage therapist. Factors that affect frequency of massage include career, activities, the natural density of your muscle tissue, and how you manage stress.

On average, people with specific issues should get a massage every 1 to 2 weeks. For those with no specific issues, it’s recommended to receive a massage at least once every month.
