A MedSpa where our mission is giving you RESULTS!
Massage should be a part of your life, a regular routine just like diet and exercise. It is a service you can provide for your body to prevent injury and stress, and form a strong balance between your physical and mental well-being. A person engaging in moderate to vigorous exercise or physically demanding job could benefit from a massage once a week. Also, someone who works in a prolonged position, such as sitting at a computer, working with specific tools, or any repetitive motion, could also benefit from a massage once a week. However, for some people, a more realistic plan would be to have a massage once a month. Receiving massage as often as you can on a regular basis, allowing the therapist to be a part of the plan and aide in your short-term and long-term goals, is what is recommended.
How effective is massage therapy?
Massage therapy may be helpful for neck or shoulder pain, but the benefits may only last for a short time. A 2013 review of 12 studies (757 total participants) found that massage therapy was more helpful for both neck and shoulder pain than inactive therapies but was not more effective than other active therapies.
