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

How often do I need to get regular massage sessions?

 For high stress jobs and serious athletes schedule a regular massage session every 2-3 weeks. This will keep you in top form to prevent stress from piling up.

 For most of you schedule a 60 or 90 minute regular massage session every 6-8 weeks. This will keep you feeling wonderful and help prevent future injuries.

 If you have a tight budget, save up for a regular massage session every 12-16 weeks. This will still have a major impact on your long term health and help prevent injury.

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. It will keep you happy and healthy for years to come.
