Massage For Men – Top Treatments
Work. Eat. Sleep. For too many of us, this is what the daily routine boils down to. This hectic schedule can have adverse effects on the body. Untreated and persistent stress, tense muscles and even a lack of relaxation can wear the body down.
Fortunately, these symptoms of time-poor lifestyles can be eased with something as simple as a massage. While massage is of benefit for both men and women, women are often more likely to address their health issues and indulge in massage to treat themselves.
A lot of men shy away from massages because they either get embarrassed that they will be seen by their male friends, or they simply are uncomfortable in what is seen as the female environment of the day spa.
However, men can definitely benefit from regular massage. One of the biggest benefits of massage is the feeling of calm and tranquillity that it can offer. Stress is a big problem for many men and is often left untreated, but things like taking a moment to let one relax and making time for the self can be a great help.
A massage can be a great way to unwind, especially if you’re in a stressful and demanding line of work. So what styles of massage would suit a man? Here we list our top treatments that will help you reap the benefits of massage therapy.
Swedish or relaxation massage is the style that comes to mind when most people think about massage. As the best-known type of bodywork performed today, one of the primary goals of the Swedish massage technique is to relax the entire body. But Swedish massage therapy goes beyond relaxation. Swedish massage is wonderfully beneficial for increasing the level of oxygen in the blood, decreasing muscle toxins, improving circulation and flexibility while easing tension. Receiving regular relaxation massages can result in significant decreases in levels of the stress hormone cortisol; massage can also boost the immune cells that help fight colds.
Deep tissue massage therapy is similar to Swedish massage, but the use of deeper pressure is great for releasing chronic muscle tension. The focus in deep tissue massage is on the deepest layers of muscle tissue, tendons and fascia (the protective layer surrounding muscles, bones and joints). Ripple’s Russian deep tissue massage uses unique techniques such as creating friction (where the top half of the fingers are used to massage along the back) and also involves the rocking and movement of the body to release stress. This style of massage is very effective for reducing stress as it encourages surrendering your body to the massage, so that your body learns to relax and unwind. It is a very slow, peaceful style of massage that is perfect for males wanting to escape the stresses of modern living. You will find your mood uplifted and your body greatly relaxed after a session of deep tissue massage.
- Sports massage
Remedial massage is a deep tissue style massage, ideal for treating muscle tension or chronic pain. For men who are athletic and do a lot of regular and intense training, remedial or sports massage can help to hasten muscle recovery, making hitting those weights again the next day a little easier. The movements of massage also help to encourage better blood flow and circulation and this helps to flush out any unwanted waste and toxins from your body. This style of massage therapy is geared toward athletes of every kind, from world-class professionals to weekend joggers. Focusing on areas of the body that are overused and stressed from repetitive and often aggressive movements, regular massage promotes flexibility, reduces fatigue, improves endurance, helps prevent injuries and prepares your body and mind for optimal performance.
In traditional Chinese foot reflexology, gentle pressure applied to points on the feet, known as reflexes, can be used to stimulate energy flow and release any blockages. The belief is that our feet contain a “map” of the entire body: every organ and body structure relates to a precise point on the top, side or sole of the foot. Foot reflexology massage can be a deeply relaxing and therapeutic treatment for those suffering from plantar fasciitis, ankle injuries or even everyday work and play. By applying traditional Chinese massage techniques to the foot, calf and upper leg, this will not only help relieve toe pain, ankle pain, plantar fasciitis and common forms of arthritis, but can also decrease stress and anxiety in the entire body.
Indian head massage, or Champissage, is a massage therapy that is based on the ancient healing system of Ayurveda. Indian head massage focuses on treating the patient using massage techniques on the face, head, neck, upper arms and shoulders. It uses gentle massage strokes on these areas to stimulate the nerves, loosen up tight muscles, and relax superficial tissues. There are multiple benefits to receiving regular head massages, including: relieving muscle tension; improving circulation; relieving insomnia; promoting healthy hair growth; improving mental performance; and promoting a deep and lasting sense of peace and tranquility.
Hot stone massage is a specialty massage where the therapist uses smooth, heated stones as an extension of their own hands, or by placing them on the body. Enjoy the sensation of smooth, heated volcanic lava stones and hands as they glide over your body in a sequence of long, slow strokes. The heat from the stones penetrate deep within specific areas, relieving aches and muscle tension. This beautiful treatment is ideal for promoting detoxification, improving circulation as well as alleviating anxiety. Hot stone massage can be enjoyed all year round; however it is a definite favourite during the cold winter months.
This is definitely a treatment for the coffee aficionados. Imagine the delicious aroma of freshly roasted ground coffee, combined with a wonderfully relaxing massage. This is definitely not your typical floral-scented massage, and you will leave smelling like coffee and not a field of flowers. Incorporating our specialty Ripple coffee oil, choose your preferred style of massage and surrender to the feeling of relaxation and rejuvenation. We recommend combining your massage with a relaxing foot reflexology massage and a stress-busting Indian head massage.

Massage for men
Ripple caters specifically for men with our Blokes massage treatments.
A lot of men shy away from massages and beauty treatments because they either get embarrassed that they will be seen by their male friends, or the often floral scents used in day spas. Or they simply are uncomfortable in what is seen as the female environment of the day spa.
So we are Ripple wanted to create a massage for men where our male clientele can enjoy the indulgent day spa experience without any hassles or embarrassment. At Ripple we offer a mobile experience, meaning that we can come to the privacy of your own home, so that you can chill out and relax. We also have come up with a great manly scent using sandalwood that leaves you smelling more like a bloke and less like a field of flowers.
We have some great tips for you if you want to book in your first male massage with Ripple Massage.
Massage for Men Tip 1: Always have a shower before your treatment so that you are all fresh for the therapist and your muscles are loose and warmed up.
Massage for Men Tip 2: Don’t eat too much before your treatment. Big greasy meals are just going to make you feel bloated and considering you spend half your massage on your stomach; you will probably spend a lot of time focusing how uncomfortable you feel and how your digestive system is working over time. Stick to something light and healthy.
Massage for Men Tip 3: Let the therapist know of any injuries or of any areas of the body that you are particularly tense so that the therapist can treat you accordingly.
Massage for Men Tip 4: Make sure to let the therapist know how hard of a massage you are after. You can go for a relaxing style or maybe you need a deep tissue massage to target tension.
Massage for Men Tip 5: Make sure to remove any chains or watches. Jewelry gets in the way of the therapists carrying out their massage techniques properly, and therefore should be removed. Also the oils used in the massage can react with the jewelry and can cause them to tarnish- and we don’t want that happen.
Massage for Men Tip 6: Don’t get a massage if you have sun burn. You will just be uncomfortable and in pain and the therapists will also probably feel at a loss on how to massage you without bring discomfort.
Massage for Men Tip 7: When your treatment is done, drink of lots of water. Your muscles will have released a heap of toxins during your male massage, so you need to help flush these out via drinking water.
Massage for Men Tip 8: Don’t get up too quickly from your treatment as you will most likely feel a little dizzy from all the toxins that would have been released
Massage for Men Tip 9: Don’t book in any gym time for after your massage. Your body needs time to recover and relax after the treatment and with the release of toxins; you may be in a strange state to focus on your session. Take some time after your treatment to just relax, watch a movie, have a bath, read a book. You just took time and money out to have this treatment so make the most of it.
Massage for Men Tip 10: Book in further treatments. Whether you have issues with tension or you just need to relax, male massage is great way to help keep your body intact and keep your mind clear.
