What can you expect after your first massage? You should feel a little better. You will probably have an amazing sleep that night, and the effects can last for several days. As you continue your daily routine, the pain will likely creep back in.
So why get Indian Head Massage at all? Because with each session, the effects should build. Typically after a few massages, the pain will drop considerably, and it won’t return to the same levels that it started at. Eventually, you may have difficulty remembering what your old pain felt like. There will be ups and downs, but the overall trend should be “down.”
How often should you get massage? Most of the studies that show substantial benefits use a weekly protocol, but I’ve seen good results from twice-monthly massage. If you’re in pain, I’d recommend starting with weekly massage for about four weeks, and then tapering off as you recover. I know that costs can add up so start with what you can afford. Just realize that frequency and regularity are big factors in the success of the treatment regimen.
