How often you should have a full body massage depends on a combination of elements: how your body feels, how much time you can devote to it and financial commitments.
If you have no specific injuries, aches or pains a sports massage once every 6wks would be perfect to ensure that any muscle tightness or imbalance is spotted before it can cause pain. If you have a specific reason for seeking a massage it is advisable to have a weekly session until you see a result, usually within a couple of weeks, then reduce down to a massage every couple of weeks until you can leave it for a longer period. Be guided by your body and the recommendation of your therapist. If you choose sport massage this will work on specific muscles and can cause tenderness for a few days following a treatment before it all feels a lot better.
If you have general tension and are looking for stress relief you may find a swedish or hot stone massage more beneficial. This can often include indian head massage which can be excellent for tension originated headaches.
There are so many types of massage available it is worth checking out the qualification of the therapist you choose or seek a recommendation. Look for membership of professional associations as a first step to ensuring you choose a therapist who can deliver results.
