Massage therapy is found to have an effective impact on easing stress symptoms such as chronic headaches, muscle pain, back pain, and lack of proper sleep.
While it is common for most massages to provide such stress relief, there are some massage techniques that are specifically designed to enhance relaxation, healthy blood flow and harmony.
Here are our top recommendations for serious stress busting massages for men:
Lomi Lomi Massage – Hailing from Hawaii, Lomi Lomi is an exotic massage that focuses on getting rid of mental and physical stress while stimulating energy flow in the body. It uses a combination of mild rhythmic massage strokes and aroma oils to bring relaxation and inner balance.
Aromatherapy Massage - A common favourite, the Aromatherapy Massage uses a fine blend of essential oils and relaxing massage techniques to soothe your senses and uplift your mood. The pleasant scent of essential oils is known to lower cortisol – the stress causing hormone, while the massage strokes help eliminate anxiety and strike peace and balance.
Ayurvedic Massage - One of the ancient massage techniques hailing from India, the Ayurvedic massage makes use of Ayurvedic oil and vigorous massage strokes to relax your body by flushing out toxins.
Balinese Massage - It is a combination of acupressure, reflexology and aromatherapy – which contribute to faster detoxification of the whole body, thus alleviating stress and re-energizing your body.
Hot Stone Massage -This massage incorporates the use of hot stones along with gentle pressure. The hot stones warm up the body’s deep tissues, thus relaxing stiff muscles and detoxifying the skin while stimulating energy points and increasing blood circulation through the body.
