Timing is Everything August 22 2013

Clients often ask us how often they should get a massage in order to receive the most benefit...

The answer is different for each client, and depends on a few factors:

1/ The current state of your health.  If you eat healthy, exercise, practice good posture, do yoga and meditate, your body will have different needs than someone who is nutrient-deficient, sedentary, over-worked/stressed/anxious and out of touch with what's going on with their body.  Give some thought as to where you fall on this spectrum...

2/ Problematic or chronic conditions.  Are you suffering from a specific condition?  Frequent headaches?  Or are you so stressed that anxiety is affecting your ability to function?  If so, more frequent massage at first might be beneficial for you...

3/ Time and money.  We want the best for your health, but realize you need to take steps toward healthy living in the way you're able to balance self-care with other life responsibilities.  We'll help you determine what your body needs, and work with your lifestyle and budget to help bring your body back to health and balance.

Many people thrive on weekly or biweekly massages, but the minimum we feel everyone should strive for is one massage monthly.  Our wellness membership is based upon this premise and makes it affordable (less than $2/day!) for everyone to receive massage twelve times per year.  Have questions about how massage can fit into your life?  Give us a call!
