Massage appointments, how often?

How often should I come for a massage appointment?

Often I got asked this question, and the answer is not as simple as.

A massage, that is Remedial Massage, Thai Massage or MLD treatment, has the aim to heal a condition or alleviate the pain.

Well, at least that’s the main aim of those techniques.

Said so, the second, but not less important task for a massage is to induce relaxation.

Therefore, if you are aiming to get some relaxation, I would suggest considering getting a massage appointment regularly. Like, every 2 weeks, every month or every 2 months.

Of course, depends mostly on finance.

So, a regular massage appointment, allows the body and mind to aim for something positive.

It is like a reward.

On the other hand, if the message is not limited to relaxation time, then, you may need it more often.

That’s the case when the client comes to the appointment that is in pain (99% of the time).

The fact that you are in pain can be a sign that the body issue has been there for a while.

Indeed with a massage, we can alleviate the pain, but to actually fix the issue (if it’s fixable by the way) or to make the best out of what the condition is, we need to do more than one session.

In fact, one session may release the pain for a couple of days, but then, as you go back to your daily routine, the pain would come back.

Therefore, a series of close massage appointments, in a short time can actually help for the best.

Another important aspect of pain management is exercise.

Corrective exercises are a key role in expanding the time between one session and the next one.

If you actually do the exercises, you can by yourself improve your body conditions, reducing the risk of injury and pain.

In conclusion, the frequency for which you should attend a massage appointment is based on your needing.

For a Remedial massage or a Thai Massage, you may wanna initially see the therapist once a week for the first 3 to 4 weeks.

With MLD is different.

With MLD the need for seeing a therapist can be more frequent.

Obviously depending on the condition that has to be treated.
