5 Reasons To Get Dad a Massage
Welcome back to the Remedi Spa blog! Last month, we explored some of the best reasons to get your mom a massage for Mother’s Day, and now, it’s Dad’s turn. Many often think of spa massages as a luxury treatment for women, but that is simply not the case. While relaxing, massage therapy treatments are incredibly beneficial to all people’s health, offering benefits that include natural pain relief, stress relief, and improved sleep patterns. Because Father’s Day will be here before you know it, here are some reasons why you should consider giving your dad the gift of massage.
Effective Pain Relief
Massage is a healing art that has been used for centuries to treat numerous pain symptoms. A deep tissue massage can loosen muscles and address tension and pain, especially in the neck, back, and shoulders. A massage therapist will apply deep pressure according to your dad’s pain tolerance, addressing specific pain points in the body that can give your dad some much-needed pain relief from working hard every day.
A relaxing massage is effective for controlling stress caused by everyday life, work, kids, bills, and so on. A Swedish massage is a perfect stress relieving therapy, which involves the use of light to medium pressure, gentle kneading, sweeping strokes, and other calming massage techniques that are meant to release tension in the neck, shoulders, back, and other parts of the body. Your dad could probably use an hour or two to relax, rejuvenate, and recharge during a massage. What’s more, getting regular massages to relieve stress and tension can help lower his blood pressure, which can be heightened as a result of stress and anxiety.
Aids Injury Recovery
Whether performing home repairs, doing yard work, working too hard on the job, or being a weekend warrior, dads tend to hurt themselves a lot. Massage is effective for encouraging the body’s natural ability to heal. What’s more, muscles respond to stimulation and pressure, which can help lessen the pain caused by an injury, while also focusing on the root cause of the pain. Massage gets the lymph circulation flowing, which brings restorative nutrients to damaged tissues and removes toxins from the muscles that contribute to pain.
Great for Athletes
If your dad is active, whether an athlete or a fitness enthusiast, getting regular massages can improve his physical performance. Massage therapy relieves tensions in muscles, joints, tendons, and ligaments, thus improving flexibility and range of motion. This can help your dad stay a lot more active for longer periods of time.
Massage is effective for strengthening the immune system. The American Massage Therapy Association (AMTA) reports that getting regular massages can boost the body’s natural immune function while improving mood and enhancing overall wellness. Therefore, massage can help prevent illnesses such as the common cold and other seasonal ailments that your dad may catch at work, or from the kids bringing a cold home from school. The AMTA states that massage increases the body’s white blood cells that fight off harmful viruses. Give your dad the gift of staying healthy during cold and flu seasons, even those that sometimes come up during summer.

With all of the benefits that massage provides, giving your dad the gift of massage for Father’s Day will only improve his overall wellness, relieving any aches and pains, reducing stress, aiding in healing, and improving flexibility.
