You don’t wait until your teeth fall out to see your dentist, you go every 6 months to keep them in good health.
And you don’t wait till your car breaks down to see your mechanic, you take it for a service every 6 months to keep it running smoothly. Or maybe you don’t, and you run the risk of more severe damage and bigger costs.
When it comes to your musculoskeletal health, it shouldn’t be any different. We put our bodies through all kinds of work and stresses but don’t spend nearly enough time recovering or maintaining. That stress on your muscles only continues to build over time, leading to restricted movement, overuse injuries and less energy.
Most people will wait until their pain or restriction is quite severe before booking into to see a remedial massage therapist but just like we do with other aspects of our health, getting a regular maintenance remedial massage can ensure you stay on top of your health and prevent serious issues or injuries developing.
Prevention isn’t the only benefit of maintenance remedial massage, it also improves your general quality of life, gives you more energy to do the activities you love and reduces your stress and anxiety as well.
A maintenance remedial massage might be every month for some people, it may be every second, third or six months for others and can even be fortnightly or weekly, especially for athletes or those who work out regularly. This is something that can be worked out with your therapist, who can work out a treatment program to suit your specific needs.
Other benefits of maintenance remedial massage include:
-better fitness and performance
-decreased risk of injury
-better posture and balance
-increased range of motion
-easier and more fluid movement
-reduced pain and tension
-reduced stress and anxiety
