How Often should I have a Deep Tissue Massage?
It’s important to be realistic about what one massage can achieve. Everyone is an individual and the amount of massage each person requires is different. Some people have a regular massage to keep on top of stiffness and pain ( massage MOT) due to posture, stress or working habits and this can vary from once a month, once every 6 or 8 weeks, to once a week or once a fortnight. For a sudden pain for example in the neck and shoulders after waking up with a stiff neck, one massage may be all that you need.Some people have a massage just when they feel everything is starting to tighten up again, just before it gets painful.It does vary and will depend on you and your body.
