A: It depends on your needs, goals, and health status. Some people get a massage weekly, some bi-monthly, and some monthly. We recommend a minimum of once a month for preventative self-care. Depending upon your level of stress, tension, or discomfort you may benefit from coming in more often.

Q: What are the benefits of massage and bodywork?
A: Massage and bodywork can help release chronic muscular tension and pain, improve circulation, increase joint flexibility, reduce mental and physical fatigue and stress, promote faster healing of injured muscle tissue, improve posture, and reduce blood pressure. Massage and bodywork is also known to promote better sleep, improve concentration, reduce anxiety, and create an overall sense of well-being.
