Is Massage Luxury or Necessity?
Some people view massage therapy as a luxury that they may indulge themselves to once in a while. For those with muscular aches and joint pain massage is a necessity. Therapeutic massage can be a necessity, not a luxury for those with myofascitis, fibromyalgia, chronic pain and stress. Today more and more people are Massage Therapy clients and consider massage therapy to be health maintenance and preventive care for their body, no different from seeing their physicians. A regular basis massage is either therapeutic or maintenance, just as changing the oil in your car, its needed to keep your engine working better and longer. Healthy longevity is the goal of those who come in.

People say to want to be healthy and get regular massages, but other obligations often get in the way and so they postpone taking care of themselves.
