Las Vegas, NV, June 02, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- Balancing work, family and exercise is a challenge for many. Often, a busy adult’s exercise program is limited to an impromptu game of softball with the kids at the park or tackling strenuous home improvement projects around the house on the weekends. When Monday rolls around, the body cries out for relief. A massage would be good to relieve those aches. And the great news is that whether you’re a professional athlete or a weekend warrior, massage therapy has several proven benefits beyond soothing sore muscles.
Though massage has definite health benefits for both men and women, some are specific to men. A 2010 study from Sweden showed that one 80-minute hand-and-foot massage significantly lowered men’s heart rates, cortisol levels and insulin levels- all of which help to lower stress and the body’s reactions to it. Persistent stress can wear down the male body mentally and physically. In fact, a 2010 meta-analysis in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry indicates massage may well ease symptoms of depression. Other studies indicate that regular massage therapy significantly lowers chronic neck and back pain, in part by releasing endorphins which increase the threshold for pain tolerance.
Massage can also improve athletic performance and help in preventing injuries by increasing range-of-motion.
