Frequently Asked Questions
How often should I get a massage?
Frequency depends on what your goal is in receiving your massage. If you are looking for relief from pain then you will want to get a massage once or twice a week. If you are looking to relieve stress and increase relaxation then you will want to get a massage every three to six weeks. I recommend listening to your body it will let you know when you need a massage.
