In the short term the answer is yes. I have heard people say "I don't bother getting massages regularly because the good feeling never lasts." In the long term, massage is like any other maintenance. It needs to be performed regularly for best results. There are many other things that we do for our bodies that have to be done repeatedly. My fellow massage therapist Barry Hatfield wrote a blog that says it all so with his permission I am sharing it with you. Click on source link below. Thanks Barry. I couldn't have said it better!
