How Often Should I get a Massage?

If you get a massage once a year, it will be relaxing, but it can't undo a lifetime of muscle tension. Typically, once every month or two is ideal for keeping your muscle tissue pliable and in good shape. If you are in chronic pain or have a special issue to address, you might need to come weekly (or even twice a week) until you feel better. Once you're feeling good, once a month is the recommended minimum for maintaining the health of your tissue. If you start stretching the massages out too far apart, then your muscles can revert to their old patterns, especially if you come under stress.
