How quickly someone sees the benefits depends on where they're starting from!
It takes a good 48 hours simply for the system to rebalance after a deep massage, so you need at least a 2 day gap between massages. If your musculo-skeletal system is not in great shape you would probably be advised to have weekly deep/remedial sessions to start sorting out the main problems - as part of a health plan that might include exercise, breathwork and nutrition (and seek medical advice first if you're in very bad shape).
If you can afford it (and need it) you might also have some brief remedial work on specific areas in between the weekly full sessions.
Once you're in shape, I would say the ideal is a weekly massage just to keep everything flowing nicely and to optimise overall health and well-being. Of course, not everyone can afford that. Do whatever you can - but try not not leave until problems occur!
My own view is that if everyone had a weekly massage, in the medium to long term we'd see a huge reduction in the demand for GP and other NHS services (including mental health). I would really love to see a government take the brave step of seriously investing in positive health rather than just investing in fighting illness. But I'm not holding my breath on that one!
