"Getting a massage can be a way to treat yourself, de-stress, or address a medical issue. You can seek out a massage therapist for a variety of different massages. You can also self-massage or ask someone to perform massage techniques at home.

There are no standard guidelines for the number of massages you can get, but a massage therapist or your doctor may be able to recommend a frequency and duration that work best for your needs.

Massages for injury are typically more frequent, while massages for pampering or relaxation purposes can occur less often."

Lymphatic/Surgery recovery therapy needs to occur much more frequently.
