Booking for a maintenance massage is a popular choice for many of my clients, but what is a maintenance massage and why might it be of benefit to you?
Quite simply, a maintenance massage is a regularly-scheduled massage that you come in for regardless of whether or not you are feeling any pain or tension on that particular day.
The aim of a maintenance massage is to check what is happening with your muscles and address any niggles that may be building up before they start to cause any problems. It is also a good opportunity to check any historic problems, look at the major muscle groups, or talk about any stretches or exercises that may be of benefit. Each appointment will be specifically designed around your needs and goals on that day.
There is no set time frame for having a maintenance massage; they can be anytime from every two weeks up to every two to three months. It really depends on the individual. However, the most popular time frame for most of my maintenance massage clients is every 4 to 6 weeks.
Maintenance massages can be of benefit to everyone, not just people who exercise or train regularly for a particular sport. They can benefit anyone who finds themselves doing repetitive movements that over time increase muscle tension and can lead to pain. This can include office workers, those who have stressful or physical jobs or those with young children.
For sports people, incorporating maintenance massages into your training routine can help to loosen muscles that have been overworked and identify any problems that may be building up before they start to impact on your performance.
Whether you wish to book regular sessions or come on a more ad-hoc basis, maintenance massages are the perfect choice for anyone who wants to keep their body functioning in the best possible way.
