Health benefits of a massage

Health benefits of a massage

Massage has many important health benefits. Massage can help you maintain physical, mental and emotional well-being, especially when it is part of your regular wellness routine.

Benefits of a massage include:

  • Calms the nervous system and promotes a sense of relaxation and well being;
  • Reduces tension and anxiety;
  • Improves blood circulation, which delivers oxygen and nutrients to the cells;
  • Stimulates the lymphatic system, which carries away the body’s waste products;
  • Prevents and relieve muscles cramps and spasms; and
  • Massage therapy can help with pain management in conditions such as arthritis, sciatica, muscle spasms.
   

Remind yourself of these health benefits if you start to feel guilty about getting massage!

Massage is not a good idea if you have a fever, infections, inflammation, osteoporosis and other medical conditions. If you have any questions about whether a massage would be right for you, ask to speak to a massage therapist before you make your appointment.

60 or 90 minutes?

How long? 60 or 90min?

A sixty minute massage is a good introduction to our massage style. We feel though that a sixty minute massage is a bit rushed. Often there is not enough time to be sure to include all the body. We much prefer to give a full ninety minute (or longer) massage. Of course, the decision is yours.

Misconceptions about massage therapy

Prostate Massage

The following needs to be stressed and clarified: There is no such thing as legitimate "prostate massage" by a massage therapist. There may be indications for prostate massage for certain bona fide medical conditions, but this procedure is only performed by a specialized physician, and certainly not found on the internet. So, you do not need to ask if any male massage therapists offer it.

Male massage Therapist

Chances are likely that you typed the keywords, "male massage therapist”, or something very similar, into a search engine to find this web site. Unfortunately, these keywords are often linked to web sites promoting gay sex or m2m services by unlicensed massage therapists. If this was your intent and you landed on this massage web site, we can assure you that you have come to the wrong place. This web site does not promote massage therapy as a way to obtain sexual services, gay or straight. Do not confuse it with M2M or any similar web site.
