Dallas–September 16, 2009/(www.myprgenie.com) — Therapists at Massage Envy have taken notice that clients are always asking about how often they should receive massages.

“The truth is,” says C.G. Funk, vice president of industry relations and product development for Massage Envy, the leading provider of massage therapy in the U.S., “it depends on a number of things.”

Massage therapy not only decreases pain and tension in muscles, it’s also great for improving posture, promoting a healthy circulatory system, improving flexibility, relieving stress and strengthening the immune system.

The type of massage being received, the recommendations of the massage therapist, the physical condition of the client and time and finances, are all factors that determine the number of massages a person should have.

“For a general recommendation of massage frequency,” says Massage Envy’s Funk, “I would suggest receiving a massage at least twice a month in order to maintain the effects and results from each session.” While Funk gives a general recommendation of two massage sessions per month, receiving massage once a month will still produce great results when scheduled on a regular basis.

At Massage Envy, an introductory one-hour massage session (a 50-minute massage and time for consultation and dressing) is just $39. Memberships are available for $49 per month and include a one-hour massage session. Members may also enjoy unlimited additional one-hour massage sessions at the $39 member rate.
