How many sessions are needed?
In an ideal world we should all be having a remedial massage once a week, however this is not always possible. In some cases however you may need to do a few treatments quite close together to get the most benefit and optimize the treatment, until you are at a stage of maintenance which may be every fortnight or monthly. Your therapist will advise you regarding frequency of visits after assessing your needs.
