Massage is well known for helping us to relax both our body and mind. Women often treat themselves to spa treatments that incorporate massage, but what about men? There are so many benefits of massage for men that can help soothe the body, mind and soul. Below we explore the many benefits of massages for men:


Boosts wellness

Massage is wonderful for boosting our mood and for making us feel happier. This is due to the release of serotonin, the happy hormone. However, some men can be less open about their feelings and less likely to talk about concerns. If men are lacking in self-esteem then a massage can give them the ‘pick me up’ and sense of wellness that they need.


Aids flexibility

Massage is a wonderful way in which to create a more flexible body. All areas of the body can be targeted, helping to ease those chronic aches and pains. In general, men’s bodies tend to be less flexible than women’s, but a massage can actually help to relax muscles, prevent muscle pain and any likelihood of resulting injury.


Alleviates back and neck pain

If you have a desk job or your job involves heavy manual work, then the odds are that you will suffer from back and neck pain at times. Massage can offer deep pressure to these areas, relaxing the muscles and tendons that can alleviate this type of pain.


Promotes deep sleep

If you have trouble sleeping or relaxing, then a massage can help you to have a good night’s sleep. As already mentioned, serotonin is released during massage and this creates a deep sense of wellbeing. When we feel better in our bodies and more relaxed, we are better able to fall asleep and to stay asleep.


Reduces stress levels

Massage is good for the heart as it reduces stress levels. Another huge benefit is that it boosts circulation, which is also good for heart health. So, for those men who have hectic lives, massage can really improve their health.

    Really a good and straight to the point article. It is really true that massage helps in relaxing and help to regain our physical and mental stamina. Massage really helps in inducing good sleep, I used to suffer from insomnia due to the late night work hours and was suggested massage therapy. Massage really worked very well for my condition.
