Body Treatments for Men and Women

Modern life can be stressful and that is why there is an increased need to relax. A spa can offer a variety of relaxing treatments for men and women of different ages. A body massage can provide some much needed relief from strain and stress. Shiatsu and Swedish massages offer some of the best benefits when it comes to relaxation. These traditional massages target the back area, which is lined with sensitive nerves coming from the spinal cord. There may also be full body massages that focus on the limbs.

Acupuncture is often integrated into a full body treatment at a spa. This ancient technique involves the insertion of very thin needles below the skin of a client. Once inside, the needles target connective tissue and nerves of the peripheral nervous system. There may be a feeling of being numb due to the targeting of nerves throughout the entire body. A massage Montreal treatment may combine acupuncture along with some herbal products such as tea and extracts available in supplement form. Massage et massotherapie Montreal is another option of relaxation for individuals that compete in sports at high levels.

After an intense match, an athlete needs to cool down and relax the body in order to avoid any injuries. Therapeutic massages can be used to target large muscle groups in the arms, legs, thighs and back. Athletes also get their muscles warmed up before a major competition with innovative massages techniques that are available at modern spa settings in Canada.

 

The Path of Testosterone

If you are considering a Nature’s Plus testosterone supplement or just feeling the effects of lower natural testosterone levels in your body, it is interesting to take a look at the path that testosterone is going to take over the years. This is slightly different for everyone, but there is a general trend that can be observed, which stays true for almost every man in the world. Understanding how this works can help you to see what your body is doing and why it is happening.

You should know that testosterone is very important to the growth and development of your body. It helps to push your body into puberty. Therefore, the levels begin increasing around age 12. In just six years or so, by the time that you reach age 18, you testosterone levels are going to top out. This is the highest that they will ever be in your life.

After that, the levels begin to drop again. Most men do not notice any change at all until they are around 40, but the levels have been sinking slowly from around age 25. After they hit age 40 or 45, men may begin to notice that they have less energy or a reduced sex drive. Since your body is no longer growing, it does not need to produce as much, and this trend continues on into old age. When you get to be 80 years old, your testosterone levels are quite low, only half of what they were at 18.

October, Movember, December

With just a few days left of October, people everywhere are looking forward to the dawn of November. No, not for even colder weather, but for the beginning of Movember! If you haven’t heard of Movember yet, and think it’s a mere typo, where have you been!?

movember

Movember is a month of moustache growing that thousands of men take part in to raise money for men’s health causes. The event runs in support of prostate cancer, testicular cancer and mental health charities – all worthy causes by anyone’s standard.

Talking about such sensitive issues is something that most men try to avoid, sweeping them under the rug and pretending they aren’t there. However, the reality is that these risks are very real – just look at some of these facts:

  • Over 100 men a day are diagnosed with prostate cancer in the UK
  • The most common cause of death in men under 35 is suicide
  • There is a 14% higher chance of men developing cancer than women

Established in 2003, the event has been a fantastic way to draw attention to some of these serious health risks men face. The great thing about Movember is you can have a laugh whilst funding vital research at the same time.

Make sure you sign up to Just Giving to maximise the ways people can donate to the cause. Once you’ve done this, all you’ll have to worry about is what kind of moustache to grow. Handlebar, Dali, Super Mario – the possibilities are endless.

Ladies can feel a little left out during Movember, but there is no need! Remember the saying ‘Behind every great man is a great woman’? Well, behind every Mo Bro is a Mo Sister! Show your support to your nearest and dearest moustache grower by helping them raise funds and awareness.

There are a number of ways you can get behind the cause. Your Design stock a fantastic range of personalised gifts that will be great for showing your support. Why not treat the office Mo Bros a personalised mug with ‘I moustache you a question’ printed on? Or, how about sporting some funky moustache earrings?

Whatever you do, and however you do it, just make sure you get involved in this worthwhile event.
