No matter your age, no matter where you are or what you do for a living, you could benefit from massage in ways you might never have considered. And foremost, perhaps, among these is heart health. Many of us have no idea what it can do for this vital organ that pumps away within us, keeping us alive. We may know about the benefits of this service in terms of its powers to soothe muscles and joints. We may know all about the positive impact it can have on our stress levels. But the heart? In all likelihood we haven’t given it much consideration, much less believed it possible. But a decent male massage can trigger a series of reactions that all add up to a healthy heart. First, the nerve endings in our skin are stimulated, which triggers the release of endorphins. Then, these endorphins (sometimes known as feel-good hormones) prevent or diminish the release of stress hormones, adrenalin and cortisol. As a consequence, our blood flows more freely, blood pressure goes down and heart rates relaxes. In other words, the heart benefits from receiving this and there’s no doubt about it at all. 

 

If you make male massage in London a regular part of your lifestyle, you’re going to make the most of this wonderful benefit. Your risk of problems like cardiac arrhythmias (when the heart pumps less well, so the brain and other organs receive less blood) goes down. Long-term studies have demonstrated that a regular  programme can also help you reduce diastolic and systolic blood pressure. And, of course, your chance of suffering a heart attack goes down, too. When you think of all the people on statins and other heart-related drugs, the fact that there’s a drug-free, non-invasive, enjoyable treatment that can do so much for the heart is all the more striking. Just imagine how good it would be to be able to keep our hearts healthy in maturity without having to swallow bottles of pills. 

 

There’s now some suggestion that regular massages can help a person’s nervous system move from sympathetic to parasympathetic. The sympathetic nervous system is when our bodies are mobilised and ready for action (e.g. the fight/flight state). Of course, it has its place and sometimes we need it because it can help us react in difficult situations. But it makes the heart-rate go up, along with the breathing rate, and it also makes blood vessels narrow. The parasympathetic nervous system is when we’re in a resting state with diminished heart rate and dilated blood vessels, plus slower breathing. It’s good for us. 

 

So all in all, male massage is just what the doctor ordered when it comes to heart health. This is even truer if you ensure you get a trained therapist via a reputable and well-known agency like Tantric Soul. A trained professional can best assess your needs and deliver the right kind of gliding action against your skin to get that wonderful chain reaction under way.

It’s a problem as old as time itself. Few of us can quite make peace with hair-loss. It feels like being stripped of youth, beauty and vitality.
