The number of treatments will vary from person to person. Some people experience immediate relief; others may take months or even years to achieve results. Chronic conditions usually take longer to resolve than acute ones. Plan on a minimum of a month to see changes, but typically after each treatment you will feel totally relaxed.
Treatment frequency depends on a variety of factors: your constitution, the severity and duration of the problem. A massage therapist may suggest one or two treatments per week, or monthly visits for health maintenance and seasonal “tune ups”. Treatment frequency is also determined by your primary healthcare provider (your primary doctor) in the case of private health insurance, workman’s compensation claims and motor vehicle accident claims.
