So you wanna know, how often is too often for a massage? Surprisingly this is an easy answer, as often as you want for the most part!
Massage is for all kinds of issues, to ask how often is too often is really up to the individual. Do you work out consistently? Maybe a massage would be useful once or twice a month. It will help promote circulation, improving the possibility of a quicker recovery. Imagine not being as sore or recovering from muscle fatigue even faster!
Do you have an injury and you would like a little help recovering a little quicker? Massage once or twice a week may be a better option for you. With improved circulation and stretching with your therapist, recovery from most injuries will be shortened along with rest of course. Why wouldn’t you at least try a little extra therapy and see if it is the right option for you?
Are you looking to take more time for yourself? A massage once or twice a month, maybe your best option. We all know when it comes to taking time for ourselves, we usually don’t take enough. If therapy could improve rest, lower stress levels, or get you out of the office, isn’t it worth it?
To say that you can get a massage too often is an understatement. Unless you have unlimited financial resources, two to three times a month may be the right fit for the average person. If you have a high-stress job or lifestyle and you are looking to learn how to relax, then this simple monthly investment may be just what you need.
Can you be overstimulated, of course, you can. Talk to your therapist and find out what a good schedule would be for your lifestyle. Whether it’s once a week, twice a month or every other month, the benefits far outway the negatives of not receiving a regular massage. Invest in your health and learn to invest in yourself.
