How Often Should I get a massage? This is a question I often get from my clients at WIN Health Solutions Niagara Falls. Our conversation always starts the same way…. Every situation is unique and your needs are always changing.
Massage therapy can help:
· Relieve pain
· Reduce stress
· Lower blood pressure
· Speed recovery
· Optimize an athletes game
Even for the healthiest person, massage therapy offers major benefits like:
· Calming the central nervous system
· Increasing circulation
· Elongating tight muscles
· Boosting immunity
What are your goals?
If you suffer from a chronic nagging injury, several treatments close together to override habitual muscle patters and get to the root of your problem is the best way to beat the cycle. Many people don’t know that the effects of regular massage therapy are cumulative, and spreading them out to far apart might leave you back at square one every time.
A good approach to frequency of massage therapy visits is; don’t reduce frequency of your massage until you are getting consistent results. If you suffer from an acute injury try to get in to a registered massage therapist after the first 48 hours is swelling is present.
Getting massage earlier then later with an acute injury will help:
· Decrease pain
· Speed healing
· Decrease the amount of adhesions
· More mobile scare tissue
Access For More Regular Treatment
If you are diligent about following the home care advice from your massage therapist, you’ll find that you can stretch the benefits of your massage and decrease the frequency of your visits.
