How often should you receive a Clinical Massage?
Your overall general health will determine this. If you’re in good health with no specific complaints or problems, you would probably only need to receive a massage once a month, for maintenance purposes. Depending on the severity of your pain and the specifics of your problems, once or twice a week might be necessary to achieve the desired results. Monthly follow-up visits after the desired results are achieved would be beneficial to keep you maintained and keep the old pain from reoccurring. Your therapist will be able to inform you of treatment recommendations at the conclusion of your session.
Massage can address chronic pain on many levels, and often works well in conjunction with other supportive measures, such as osteopathic treatments. Rest, exercise, and a healthy diet will maintain these results for a more substantial period of time, as well as help you to maintain your optimum health.
Certain health conditions exist that may require a doctor’s approval prior to treatment. Some may contraindicate massage all together. If you have a condition that you are unsure about please consult your doctor or your therapist before your treatment.
