Is it OK to have a massage everyday?

Updated: Dec 29, 2021

You may seek deep tissue massages daily, a few times a week, or a few times a month for pain. Your massage therapist can recommend a frequency and duration to address the underlying health condition prompting this type of massage.

Here are our top 5 benefits:

  • Promotes Relaxation and Improves Sleep. If you've ever had a massage, you'll know they're great for helping you feel relaxed and rejuvenated.

  • Reduces Stress Levels.

  • Improves Circulation.

  • Increases Joint Flexibility.

  • Reduces Headaches/Migraine Pain.

Massage benefits can include:

  • Reducing stress and increasing relaxation.

  • Reducing pain and muscle soreness and tension.

  • Improving circulation, energy and alertness.

  • Lowering heart rate and blood pressure.

  • Improving immune function.

A massage stimulates your nervous system; wakes up your muscles, organs, and glands; moves blood and lymph fluid, and gets multitudes of cells to produce and release chemicals and hormones. Your body needs a massage to renew itself and reverse the effects of stress.

If relaxation is your goal, then a 50 or 60 minute massage is generally appropriate. You can certainly do a longer session of 80 or 90 minutes if you like, but anything much longer than that may tend to feel a bit repetitive or may leave you groggy afterward. Specific work is generally more time-consuming.

Keep these in mind to make the most of your therapy.

  1. Don't #1. Don't Forget to Drink Water.

  2. Don't #2. Don't Shower Immediately.

  3. Don't #3. Don't Shower With Hot Water.

  4. Don't #4. Don't Eat a Heavy Meal After a Massage.

  5. Don't #5. Don't Head Outside or Do Anything Strenuous.
