Many men are turning to massage to manage stress and to enhance their overall health and well being. Massage has become increasingly popular with men over the last two decades in both spas and clinics. The number of men booking monthly, bi-weekly and weekly massage sessions is at an all time high and growing steadily.
Generally speaking, men are seeking the same results from their massages as women. Men are especially interested in the pain relief properties and enhanced athletic performance that therapeutic massage can create.
For men over 30 in particular, the health benefits of massage are a draw, as well as the stress relief and anti-aging benefits of massage.
Benefits most often reported by men from their massages include:
- relief from chronic pain
- relief from old injuries
- increased range of motion
- neck and shoulder tension relief
- recovery from work related stress
- recovery from travel fatigue
- decreased recovery time from sports injuries and pain
- improved performance at the gym
- headache relief
- improved sleep
- overall relaxation
