Frequently Asked Questions

How long can you go on getting massages for a sore back?

If you are receiving treatment for a sore back with massage, the amount of time you can or should have treatment is an issue that can only be addressed by you, your massage therapist, and perhaps your doctor. For some people, relief is almost immediate and a few massages are all that are needed. However, for some people, massages are a regular long-term treatment.
