You All Come Back Now, You Hear?

Regular Thai massage can help relieve pain, improve flexibility and range of motion, and promote overall well-being.

One of the most frequent questions I get from clients is how soon they should rebook their next Thai massage treatment. I always find this question amusing because, as a business person, my response should be, “As soon as you can get back in.”

Unfortunately, there is no correct answer for how soon you should return for your subsequent treatment. Not only does every person react differently to treatment, but what you do when you go home is more a factor than anything else.

Suppose you go home, hydrate well, intentionally incorporate Qigong or other mobility training into your schedule, get a lot of sleep and balance work with life. In that case, you can go one or even two months before needing to return. Doing activities that build on the mobility you gain in a Thai massage treatment will reduce the need for you to come back for another treatment.

On the other hand, if you immediately resume working ten-hour days at your job, do not attempt to add any mobility or strength training to your schedule, do not give your body time to rest at night and eat unhealthy food, you may need to come back in less than a week. The more you put your body in distress, the more frequently you must return for another Thai massage.

I usually tell my clients to go home and note how their body feels in the morning. You must take charge of your wellness journey. Thai massage practitioners can help you on your wellness journey, but you alone are responsible. And step one is becoming more aware of how your body feels; what feels good, what hurts, and what changes after a Thai massage treatment. Then you can learn to identify when your body is losing whatever gains you had from your last treatment. That is when you need your subsequent treatment. If you wait until your body returns to where it was before your first treatment, you start over again. Ideally, you want each Thai massage to build on the previous treatment, so you need to start identifying that yourself.

All this is very nebulous, and it usually takes longer than the quick answer that my clients expect. For this reason, I have written a more standard guideline for how frequently a person needs to return for subsequent treatment.

How Often Should I Get a Thai Massage?

How much Thai massage do you need? Do athletes need to come more often? How does work-related stress affect the frequency?
