Why men need massages BarcelonaOctober 25, 2018
Men need massages too! Massage therapy is a cross gender therapy that benefits men and women equally.
Slowly society is accepting that men need massages too. Previously a massage being thought as a Spa treatment where women go to gossip and treat themselves to a relaxation massage. About time! Men are stepping forward and booking their massage appointments
Men need massages, we know that but why?
Better sleep – Men need massages because statistics show that 20% of men have problems sleeping due to a lack of Serotonin. (The feel good hormone) A relaxation massage will release serotonin leaving the client relaxed and feeling great and induce better sleep patterns.
Better flexibility – Men need massages because men are naturally less flexible than women, although even researchers “can’t specifically link it to differences in hormones, musculature, or connective tissue.” According to https://www.yogauonline.com/yogau-wellness-blog/yoga-practice-tips-are-men-really-less-flexible-women. A massage improves flexibility and helps prevent injuries caused by tight muscles
Muscle recuperation – Men need massages because they are more prone to undertake physical activities such as weight training or long distance running. These types of anaerobic and endurance trainings are muscle damaging. A good deep tissue or sport massage will help keep the body healthy as well as aid recovery for over stressed muscles
Less grey hairs – men need massages to reduce stress, the serotonin released during a massage helps elevate ones moon and makes it easier to see life from a better perspective. One man step at a time! Men are also less likely to seek help when anxious or depressed unlike women who tend to communicate more about their feelings and have a better support system in these situations. A massage is not alterative to professional psychological treatment is can reduce the level of anxiety or depression giving the man a break and some space to realign.
