How Often Should I Get a Massage?

how often should I get massage

Massage therapy is a highly personalized aspect of maintaining your health and well-being, which is the equivalent of a balanced diet and exercise. Each individual’s needs depend on his or her lifestyle, body requirements, and goals. So, when it comes to answering the question of the frequency at which you should receive a massage, the answer will vary according to the person. A professional athlete may get a few specific massage treatments a week as part of their physical training, whereas someone using massage for preventive health benefits may only get one or two massages in a month. When determining the frequency of a massage, keep these factors in mind.

Managing Stress

For those with very stressful occupations or living conditions or frequent travelers, a higher frequency of massage treatments, weekly or biweekly, is recommended. In these cases, massage therapy helps the person manage their stress.  Accumulating stress caused by stressful situations can be handled more easily with a weekly massage. In addition, just knowing that you will be given a massage every week or two weeks can be very comforting.

Managing Pain

If you use massage for pain management or other medical problems, you can get a massage more frequently. In most cases, after an injury, your therapist can recommend a massage once or twice a week while you are recovering.

If you suffer from a chronic health condition, once a week or twice a week is generally recommended, but it also depends on how your body feels.  When it comes to pain management, people generally feel they need more frequent sessions at the beginning. As your muscles relax and healing begins, the number of sessions decreases.

Athletic Performance and Recovery

If you are an athlete, you will want to be massaged as often as needed for the specific sport that you practice and your specific goals. Some athletes massage on a daily basis while others do so before a certain event. You will need to watch your training schedule and what your therapist recommends for your specific sport, training, and goals.

General Wellness

Anyone can benefit from massage therapy — even those who are healthy and have a stress-free lifestyle. The calming effect on the body and mind helps to improve the immune function that everyone needs to stay healthy.  Invest in your health with a regular monthly massage which can have great health benefits and help reduce the effects of stress.

I have been receiving massage and cupping services from Kerryann since June 2022. I originally started seeing Kerryann because I am a runner and was training for a marathon, so I required regular massage therapy. Her work is spectacular. Unlike other massage therapists I have visited, she actually listens to you when you mention a specific area feels off. She is helpful in identifying whats going on and designs your session specifically to help you feel better. In the lead up to my marathon, she was able to fit me in for a quick cupping session to tune-up my body before I departed for my race. I beat my personal record by 40 minutes, and I truly believe Kerryann’s help over the course of my training helped me achieve that. I will continue to be a client of Kerryann’s for as long as she’s in this business! Thank you Kerryann for everything that you do!
Best massage that I’ve ever received.

It was my first time going to see Kerryann and I must say from I entered the room it was peaceful serene calm ,I even enjoyed her soft relaxing music selection..

But I loved every bit of my massage Kerryann has gifted hands and I definitely will be going back the time can’t come soon enough.!!
Thank you kerryann for my services today you rock wishing all the success and you got a client for life …

My massage by Kerry-Ann was wonderful. Very therapeutic and healing. I would recommend her, she knew where to put pressure and what advice to give. Thank again Kerry-Ann.
Logistics: Enter the building, head through the brown door in the back left of the first room, go down the stairs, and find Suite B4. No need to check in with the person working at the front of the building.

Wow. Kerryann is amazing, and so strong! I left feeling like a puddle – and like I really needed a massage. After the massage, Kerryann gave me a stretching exercise to do to reduce the tension between my shoulder blades. She played lo-fi beats. The pressure was great.

Highly recommended!

Kerriane is a great massage therapist. She asks the right questions and she knows the right answers to help her clients. My husband & I are so happy she can now come to our home for our massages.

Kerryann provided a great massage service. Helped ease my neck, shoulders and back from pain due to bad posture. Will be coming back!

She hit all the spots on and applied good pressure as needed, a professional.
I went to Naturally Zuri Massage for a cupping session. I walked away with such an experience. She checked in with me to make sure that pressure of the cups was bareable but effective. I’ve had cupping done on me before but she had a different flow and energy to it. I will admit the pain that I had before going to her had reduced and didn’t flare up for about a week.
Had a cupping session with Kerryann and it was a phenomenal experience. She focused on the right areas. I left the session feeling great and felt even better the following day!
The best massage I’ve ever had. I definitely felt the care effort put into my massage. Kerryann was very attentive to my problem areas and took the necessary steps to treat those areas. I absolutely love their heated massage table, the leg pillows and shoulder pillows. I was extremely comfortable, and felt renewed when I left. I will be signing up for the membership. I will also recommend this place to everyone I know.
