The Benefits Of Gay Massage and Male Bodywork
Gay massage - Gay massage not only provides massage relief to the gay community but to everyone who enjoys a massage by a male. Straight or gay, male or female, anyone can benefit from bodywork. From young to seniors, from all walks of life, with pains and tensions from many kinds of activities, from causal sports to competitive athletics, relief for the home gardener and the overstressed, overworked executive, massage is for EVERYONE, even pets!
Gay Massage Treats the Body
Gay massage therapy can address a variety of health conditions. The most prevalent is stress-related tension. Tension, especially stress related tension accounts for 80%-90% of disease, according to medical experts. Massage has been proven to be beneficial to many physical conditions, including: cancer-related fatigue, sleep disorders, low back pain, immunity suppression, spinal cord injury, high blood pressure, diabetes, autism, post-operative surgery, age-related disorders, infertility, eating disorders, smoking cessation, and depression.
Gay massage is often effective in treating these conditions because massage offers a drug-free, non-invasive and humanistic approach based on an understanding of body's natural ability to heal itself. Gay Massage has many beneficial physiological effects:
Increasing circulation, allowing the body to pump more oxygen and nutrients into tissues and vital organs.
Stimulating the lymph system, the body's natural defense, against toxic invaders. For example, in breast cancer patients, massage has been shown to increase the cells that fight cancer.
Releasing endorphins, the body's natural painkiller. For this reason, massage is being incorporated into treatment for chronic illness, injury and recovery from surgery to control and relieve pain.
- Relaxing and softening and overused muscles.
Increasing joint flexibility.
Reducing spasms and cramping.
Reducing recovery time for strenuous workouts and eliminating subsequent pains of the athlete at any level.
Reducing post-surgery adhesions and edema.
Reducing and realigning scar tissue after healing has occurred.
- Improving range of motion and decreasing discomfort for patients with low back pain.
- Relieving pain for migraine sufferers and decreasing the need for medication.
Providing exercise and stretching for atrophied muscles and reducing shortening of the muscles for those with restricted range of motion. It's important to note that there are some conditions where massage is not recommended.
Your gay male practitioner should ask you about your specific health conditions and determine if massage, bodywork or somatic therapies are a good idea. In some cases, the practitioner may need your doctor's permission before providing services.
Treating the Spirit
Gay massage also provides another therapeutic component largely absent in today's world: tactile stimulation, or, more simply, touch. In 1986, the Touch Research Institute at the University of Miami published groundbreaking research on the effects of massage on premature babies. The preterm babies whom received massage therapy showed 47% greater weight gain and six-day shorter hospital stays than the infants who were not receiving massage. But is this study evidence of what loving touch can do spiritually, or rather what massage can do on a physiological level? Regardless, babies are not the only benefactors.
Many adults have reported cathartic experiences on the massage table. As a therapist carefully unwinds a client's stressed and tired muscles, the therapist may very well be unwinding the taut, pent-up emotions that one doesn't always have time to process in the middle of the day. And the feeling of being touched in a safe, caring, compassionate manner can be a very powerful experience; reminding the client that she or he is not alone in the world.
Gay Massage For The Gay Community
Can a gay man fully experience the benefits of massage if the therapy involves hiding aspects of the self, or even of shame? It is hardly believable that it could, and as a result a significant segment has emerged of gay practitioners openly offering gay massage services to clientèle. This open, shameless environment allows a gay man access to the full range of healing and stress reducing benefits of professional massage.
Gay Massage For The Straight Community
Gay male massage does not mean gay sex. Gay male massage is not only enjoyable for the male gay community, but all aspects of the straight community. Females can enjoy the comfort and security of a gay massage therapist and metrosexual males that are looking for a great massage therapist, regardless of sexual orientation, can enjoy a great quality massage by a gay male massage therapist.
