How Often Should You Get a Massage?

How Often Do You Get a massage?

Most people will tell you not enough, or at least, not as often as they would like. Many massage therapists will make recommendations for you to receive a massage on a weekly, bi-weekly or monthly basis to take care of your mental and physical wellness to achieve an overall state of health. Even still, it can be difficult for many people to justify “treating” themselves to massage therapy.

The following are three reasons why you deserve to get massage therapy as often as you need:

1. Much-Needed Stress Relief

It comes as no surprise that one of the most common reasons people want massage is to help them destress. Massage therapy on a regular basis can help keep your stress levels down, helping to reduce the risk of anxiety or depression. Even just a one-hour session can reduce your blood pressure and relax your muscles, almost literally helping the stress slip away.

2. Time for Yourself

Today’s society is very fast-paced and leaves little room to escape and be by yourself, but studies have shown that setting aside some time to just be with yourself is beneficial for your mental and emotional state. Scheduling regular massages is a great way to take an hour or two to close yourself off from the rest of the world and just be with your thoughts.

3. Detox for Your Health

Have you heard a therapist remind you to drink plenty of water after your session? During massage therapy, your therapist is actually doing more than just working out the tension in your muscles. Massage techniques also help to detox the body, releasing toxins that build up over time. Drinking water helps to flush them out of your system.

Schedule Massage as Often as Your Body Tells You To

While your massage therapist can make recommendations, nobody knows your body better than you do. Listen to what your body is telling you, mentally and physically, to determine how often you need massage therapy.
