Muscle pain is an unfortunate side effect of our stressful modern lifestyle. Many urban men complain of extreme muscle pain, and most turn to painkillers and muscle relaxants to ease the discomfort.
But does that really help?
Pain killers only bring a short-lived relief because they don’t address the root cause of the problem – formation of adhesions (bands of aching, rigid tissues).
A more effective and safe approach is having a massage. It eases pain and tightness of stressed and overworked muscles while helping you relax and unwind.
Here are our top recommendations for chronic muscle pain relief in men:
Thai Massage: It’s a dry massage therapy that doesn’t use any oils or lotion. During a Thai massage, the therapist uses different body parts such as the palm, elbow, fingers, forearm, thumb or feet to manipulate the body tissue, in order to improve circulation. As the circulation is improved, stiff muscles loosen up thus alleviating the pain.
Deep Tissue Massage: During a deep tissue massage, the therapist makes use of massage oil and applies direct deep pressure on the body. The massage strokes break down muscle adhesions to allow improved circulation. When the circulation happens smoothly, pain is relieved and normal movement is restored.
Ayurvedic Massage: During the massage, your entire body is covered with warm natural Ayurvedic oil followed by gentle strokes. Oil molecules penetrate deep into the skin and activate body hormones that aid in flushing out toxins and improving blood circulation in the muscles to soothe the pain.
