Therapeutic Massage good for men too!
Men often believe that therapeutic massage is a woman’s treatment only. They often associate having a massage with feminine beauty spas, and don’t realise that regular therapeutic massage has both physical and emotional benefits for both men and women alike.
It’s a proven statistic. More women than men enjoy the benefits of regular therapeutic massage. However, we can change this belief, as regular massage certainly helps men (and women) alike, to alleviate sports injuries, general aches & pains in the body, and can help reduce stress from work or at home.
Benefits that men receive from regular therapeutic massage
- Physical Benefits – Regular therapeutic massage helps to release muscle tension in the body, increase lymph flow & reduce lactic acid build and avoiding of muscles cramping. Having regular massage can allow a qualified massage therapist to also focus on any sports injuries, or referred pain rather than massaging the whole body and can reduce or prevent scar tissue and generally promotes general health and well-being
- Emotional Benefits – Many men are often under immense pressure from work, finances, relationships and family. Regular therapeutic massage can help to reduce stress & anxiety by activating the parasympathetic nervous system which in turn helps to stimulate the release of “feel good hormones” such as endorphins and serotonin helping men to relax
