how often do you get a massage?

Re: how often do you get a massage?

  • once every 25 years...

    I have gotten one my entire life and to be honest I don't know if I would do it again.

  • Once every 4-5 weeks, more often if I'm having problems.
  • every 2-3 weeks
  • 2-3 weeks

    would go every week, but I only get a certain $$ amount per year covered with my benefits.

  • Once. On the beach. After I had gotten a really bad sunburn. It was horrible, painful, not at all relaxing and made me never want one again.

  • I'm a massage therapist, so take this with a grain of salt. ;)

    I try to get a massage at least once every two weeks.  I have a very physical job (obviously), plus I run, so I'm very aware of my body and any tightness, stress, etc. that is present within it.  I find that massage helps me to relax and also avoid injuries that come along with training for races and working.

    I normally suggest people get a massage once per month if they want to maintain/slightly improve the condition their muscles are in.  More often is good, because the effects of one massage will build upon the last, depending on how often you come in, and if you have some major issues going on they are not going to get fixed in one session.

  • I haven't had a massage in, like, two years.  I would really love one, especially since my back is still kinda tight and wonky from my half a couple of weeks ago, but it's not really in the budget right now.

  • Whenever possible!  I usually can't afford it but I indulged in an hour and half massage in late February because I was super stressed. It was heavenly and the masseuse (sp?) was a hottie!
