MASSAGE MAINTENANCE

Written by Angela Pidgeon


"Scheduling a regular therapeutic massage is a supportive and restorative measure you can take to maintain physical and mental well-being throughout your life!"  Think of regular massage treatments as an investment in your health, as you would a gym membership or purchasing quality healthy food. 

How often you receive massage depends on why you're seeking massage. In dealing with the general tension of everyday commutes, computer work, and time demands, a monthly massage may be enough to sustain you. On the other hand, if you're seeking massage for chronic pain, you may need regular treatments every week or two. Or if you're addressing an acute injury or dealing with high levels of stress, you may need more frequent sessions. Your situation will dictate the optimum time between treatments. 

In general, experts say "regular" is preferable, but how regular depends on your situation. While daily massage would be delightful, practical considerations such as cost, time, and physical need likely determine the frequency of treatments. 

The benefits of massage are many, including: increasing circulation, allowing the body to pump more oxygen and nutrients throughout the body; stimulating lymph flow and boosting immunity; relaxing overused or tight muscles; increasing joint mobility and range of motion; reducing recovery time after strenuous workouts or surgery; and relieving back pain and migraines, just to name a few.

Massage is an affordable maintenance regime that will treat many problem areas of your body. Remedial Massage is more than just a luxury treatment at a day spa it is a full body treatment that will aid mobility, promote healing, reduce fibrotic joint issues, stimulate your immune system, add years to your flexibility and contribute significantly to your entire quality of life.
