When it comes to self-care, many men put others first, skipping important things that benefit health like wellness checks at the doctor and therapeutic therapies. At Helen’s Haven Integrative Medical Spa, we want the men in our community to know how important it is to schedule time for themselves with beneficial therapies that can enhance their wellbeing. Regular massages are important to everyone, and there are many ways that they benefit men.
Sports/workout recovery. If you’re active in sports or workout regularly at the gym, regular massages can help speed your muscle recovery so you can perform better. It works by giving a needed boost to the circulatory and immune systems to help prevent injuries while soothing muscles to heal after a tough workout.
Back pain. Many men suffer from back pain – some from prolonged sitting at desk jobs and others from years of tough physical labor that strains the back. A massage is an amazing tool for relieving back pain by relaxing muscles to avoid painful muscle spasms as well as improve posture alignment.
Improved heart health. Heart disease is a serious problem for many men. Massage helps improve cardiovascular health by stimulating the circulatory system as well as providing relaxation, which can reduce harmful stress hormone levels.
Better sleep. Getting professional massages on a regular schedule helps improve your sleep. Many men have a difficult time falling asleep or staying asleep, which can affect your productivity as well as your mood.
Better flexibility. Men don’t often focus on flexibility, but that aspect can help you perform better, whether you’re on the field with your favorite sport or just playing with the kids. Regular massage helps relax muscles to give you better overall flexibility.
There are so many benefits of massage for both men and women, especially when you make them a regular part of your wellness routine.
