Who says that women are the only ones that need, deserve and appreciate a good massage? Massage is necessary to relieve the tension built up in the body after a hard week of work.  When you are involved in work that requires physical labor, extended periods of standing, strenuous use of the upper body strength and twisting of the body to fit in tight places; it behooves you to take care of your body. There are many types of massage.  Swedish Massage and Deep Tissue Massage are the most well known types of bodywork provided by massage therapists.
