Men Need More Massages!

Guys - Don't miss out on the good stuff! Benefit from massage therapy!

The word “massage” conjures up different thoughts for different people.  Most commonly, images of women at the day spa being pampered with frills and girly things – not a very masculine image.  This is not appealing for most men.  In fact, many men often miss the benefits of massage therapy for this reason.  However, there are specific benefits that men receive from regular massage therapy.  Guys from all walks of life need to learn that getting a massage is not just for the girls – it truly helps them too.

In a time when our society is more physically active and making healthier choices – men need to be sure to care for their bodies.  Sure, men often excel at pushing their bodies to the limit – both physically and mentally.  What they do not tend to think about is how to heal and repair the strain of those efforts.  Yes, there is more to life then working, eating, and sleeping.  Studies show that men store stress and worries while women share them.  This is just one of the reasons men need to consider receiving regular therapeutic massage.  So in the spirit of keeping it simple – let us get to some of those specific benefits.

After I was able to stop phsyical therapy I tried massage several times they are trained and well trained but they have their way of doing it and I found they don't listen to the customer. I have an appliance in my neck binding several vertabrea's together and to get any where near them can set of a reaction in the nerves in that area.that will last for days or several week's. I have gone back to the phsyical therapists, They are a lot more expensive but they listen !
