Maintenance massage therapy sessions for long term health

”Maintenance Massage is generally considered part of complementary and alternative medicine. It's increasingly being offered along with standard treatment for a wide range of medical conditions and situations. Studies of the benefits of massage demonstrate that it is an effective treatment for reducing stress, pain and muscle tension.” - Mayo Clinic (read the whole article)

You’ve finished a series of advanced massage therapy sessions...now what?

Adding regular massage sessions to your lifestyle is a great idea! Maintenance massage therapy helps prevent future injury, lowers stress levels, and keeps your body tuned up and feeling great. 

How often do I need to get maintenance sessions? 

 If you have a high stress job and/or are a serious athlete, a maintenance massage session every 2-3 weeks will keep you in top form to prevent stress from piling up.

 For most of you, a 60 or 90 minute full body maintenance massage session once every 6-8 weeks will keep you feeling wonderful and help prevent future injuries.

 If you are on a tight budget, saving up for a maintenance massage session every 12-16 weeks will still have a major impact on your long term health.

Making a routine of maintenance massage therapy is like getting a regular oil change for your car. It’s a simple, cost effective, great feeling gift to yourself that will keep you happy and healthy for years to come.

Tips for Integrating Maintenance Massage into your lifestyle:

  • Chose a frequency that works within your budget 
  • Book sessions ahead of time so that it's already in the calendar
  • It's easier to book now and have to reschedule later if something comes up than to have to remember to book it later
  • Chose a day of the week and time that will generally work with your schedule
