Women are known to crave luxurious pampering services from head to toe. Hair salons, nail shops, day spas are very popular.
Well, Men like to be pampered too. Especially after a stressful day, strenuous week or grueling month. Whether the stress and tension comes from the grind of the every day living, keeping up schedule, meeting quotas and dead lines, dealing with difficult people while trying to keep up a good attitude or physical activity engaged in, like athletic activities, house, yard or other household and family responsibilities.
I applaud all you men for all you do.
You are a committed man, working on you goals and dreams for you family, your career your community and beyond.. That requires energy put forth that you give from your body, your mind and your spirit into what you focus on. That expansion of energy can and will deplete your energy reserves . .We will call the 'giving'. Just like your cell phone needs to be recharged regularly, so does you body, mind and your spirit to to be recharged regularly. That recharging we will call that receiving.
Receiving that recharging vital energy is why men's need to be pampered.
Being pampered is a way of receiving energy. When a man receives that replenishing energy he will be not only in a good mood but can and will be much more effective in all he does. Just like a cell phone or a flash light works better when the battery is fully charged.
The pampering is a way to receive energy in an authentic, sincere experience. Some of this can be derived the love from family, your children or entertainment, sports, favorite meal... These things could and should recharge and energize you in certain ways.
However it does not expel the deep tension and contraction in your physical body that has been storing in your muscles, joints, your neck, shoulders & spine,. your jaw, throat, chest, heart & lungs, your internal organs, your G.I.system (gastrointestinal tract, or what is commonly know as the digestive tract).
Your whole body requires the attention and the expertise of a qualified, trained, experienced, licensed, professional. Who is also authentic, sincere and intuitive.
So begs the question, Who is the right person and how do I find the right person for me?
There are several avenues you may will want inquire about.
Perhaps you want a personal recommendation. Please remember, many men will keep close to their vest like a best keep secrete their favorite Massage Therapist, unless you pursue the answer to the question "do you get therapeutic massage? Who gives you you the best energy, How about Availability, muscle relaxation, pain reduction, attention to detail. intuition, education, certification, licensing, personality, location, cleanliness, amenities, peaceful environment, them how about tandem massage / 4 hands massage"these are all valuable inquiries. If you close friends can not give you a good recommendation then ask some of these questions hen you speak, text or email a potential massage therapist candidate. I am sure you will be able to make the right choice by hearing the answers and detecting the tone and energy of these answers. I recommend to engage in comfortable conversation to get a feel for the therapist you will choose.
You can ask about any spa services like manscaping/ hair removal, sauna / eucalyptus stem, table body scrub / body shampoo, men's foot & hand care/Reflexology, scalp therapy, men's facial, sunless...These questions are important.
But what is most important to you? What are your priorities?
Many of my repeat clients return because they receive superb care by a well educated, experienced, certified, licensed Massage Therapist and receive not only excellence in physical treatment but also like the same day or next day availability in a clean quiet private studio with easy access to the freeways, off street parking in a safe upper middle class area, Then there is the fact that I see only one client at a time and space 30 minute prior to and after each client so just in case my client is running late or requests more massage time or an extra spa service .
