Everyone’s body is different, and that means the right answer is different for different people. It’s recommended that you get a massage at least once a month to keep your body. However, if you have a medical condition, or are facing mental health issues, you could need a massage every week or multiple times per week.
We are going to break down the different reasons why you should get a massage, and how often you should get one.
Anyone looking after their general health should get a massage about once per month. Getting one massage per month allows you to keep your stress levels low, keep toxins from gathering in your body, and keeps your blood and Lymphatic flow healthy and strong.
Mental health is a fairly broad category. This could go for anyone who’s facing a stressful time or having feelings of anxiety or depression. For anyone facing a particularly stressful time, or who might have high anxiety or even an anxiety disorder would benefit greatly from having a massage once every week or every other week.
If you’re facing regular back pain, you should first see a doctor and get a diagnosis. But generally you want to get a massage two or three times to see if it can give some relief and help make the pain a little more bearable and to promote health and healing.
The benefits of getting regular massage are enormous. The consistent increase in blood flow and lymphatic flow will make your entire body function better. It will help with your sleep, your immune system will get a major boost, and your mental health will see improvement as well.
