8 Benefits of Receiving Monthly/Bi-monthly/Weekly Barefoot Massage Sessions

Getting a massage on a regular basis provides consistency to the benefits you receive from Massage, like taking your vitamins & exercising every day. A regular massage keeps these benefits going longer that the once-in-a-while sessions. A monthly Barefoot massage is perfect but you should consider including your level of physical activity, stress levels, and the need for physical or mental recovery when choosing how often you should be scheduling your massage sessions. You can usually address these factors with your massage therapist to best assess a schedule that fits your needs to make an essential difference in your overall health. Barefoot Massage is an effective form of deep tissue massage that can provide many physical and mental health benefits. Barefoot massage is a type of massage that focuses on the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue using the therapist's feet as their massage tools.

If you are dealing with muscle tension or chronic pain, many massage therapists would suggest weekly massage sessions until you begin to notice consistent relief from the pain and stress. After that, many therapists would suggest bi-weekly to monthly sessions to help manage your pain. If you wait too long between sessions when dealing with chronic pain, unfortunately, you are putting your body back into a state of dysfunction. You may require several sessions to get back on track if you don’t have a regular massage schedule.

A massage therapist can help you decide which type of massage and how many sessions are optimal for your athletic activities.

If you use massage as a way to reduce tension and general stress, ideally, monthly massage sessions are the best way to keep your body balanced. Typically hour or ninety-minute-long massages on a monthly basis can be beneficial if you would like to focus on a specific problem area. Your massage therapist can help you address the right length of time for a massage session and what type of session is best for your wellness needs. Getting Barefoot Massage on a consistent basis allows for less build-up of tension, and stress, to accumulate between sessions.
