When most people think of massage, they think of pleasure; deep relaxation, a temporary relief from stress, an hour or 90 minutes in which they can let go of their regrets of the past and their worries about the future and simply inhabit the moment. That would be motivation enough for booking an appointment but the fact is that it’s merely the tip of the iceberg; there are so many more benefits, some of which rarely get flagged up and some of which you may even be entirely unaware of. It stands to reason, of course, that this highly sensual, tantric treatment is going to be soothing and reinvigorating. But it can do much, much more than that. This holds especially true if you make sure you book your session through a reputable and established agency, rather than a shoddy, fly-by-night enterprise. Assuming you’ve done that, let’s take a look at some of the wonderful ways in which this touch-based treatment can enhance your health and your life.

How can Swedish strokes make you healthier?

A gay massage London session will include two approaches with proven health benefits; Swedish and deep-tissue. The first is designed for muscle relaxation, and it focuses on the superficial muscles, avoiding the connective tissues deeper within), using kneading, long strokes, vibration, tapping and circular movements. It unlocks at least six wonderful healing qualities. These are: reduced pain (especially good for osteoarthritis and sciatica); muscle injury aftercare (particularly good for adhesions, when muscle tissues fuse together from an accident); enhanced flexibility; improved blood flow (helping your muscles get more nutrients and oxygen); reduced stress; stronger immune system (partly thanks to lowered cortisol levels).

And what about deep tissue?

If you thought that the six benefits of Swedish were good, then stand by for something even better, because deep tissue brings you seven! And all you have to do is lie there, letting your fully-trained masseur do the work. Deep tissue employs slower, more intense, more probing strokes, engaging layers of muscle and connective tissue deeper in the body. If you’ve been going through life incurring sports or exercise injuries or you’re in pain because of a sedentary job that’s led to back issues and poor posture, then here’s the moment you start improving. The seven enhancements of deep tissues are: improvements in chronic back pain; lower blood pressure; diminished muscle tension; faster recovery from intense exercise; lower labour pain (assuming you’re an expectant mother); lessened arthritis symptoms; broken down scar tissue (inner scar tissue can lead to stiffness, inflammation and spams, so breaking it down is essential).

Where’s the proof?

All thirteen of these health enhancements are scientifically proven. To look at just a couple, a study (featured in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine) looked at blood pressure and deep tissue massage. And in Studies In Health Technology and Informatics, a study compared the effectiveness of deep tissue versus therapeutic massage on chronic back pain, proving that the former was more powerful a tool.
