A remedial massage each week for 2-4 weeks will usually relieve your pain and reduce
muscular tightness to a manageable level.
To maintain optimal muscle health and help prevent pain, injury or stiffness from recurring, continue having massages regularly (weekly, fortnightly or monthly, depending on your lifestyle, health, occupation, biomechanics, posture and exercise habits).
Remedial massage is a bit like exercise - the longer you leave it between sessions, the harder it is to maintain.
