How often should I receive massage?

I recommend that you try to incorporate some kind of regular program according to what you can realistically do. Because we are talking about your muscles, their response is similar to exercise. As with exercise, long term improvements are not achieved by running a marathon once a year. If you are receiving treatment for injuries you need to initially come in one and two times a week until your pain symptoms have improved and you can space appointments out to maintenance sessions.  Maintenance massage is for preventative health care or stress relief, you have more leeway in how often you receive a particular type of therapy.  Bi-weekly and monthly sessions are beneficial for prevention and body awareness. The effects of consistent sessions are cumulative. Every week or two can make a big difference in your overall health and tension levels.
