Men’s Health Movember – Nov 2022

We were fortunate to be able to enjoy such a beautiful autumn season this year. BC broke so many high temperature and low rain records. As winter approaches we need to find ways to stay active and healthy. We are now into November, otherwise known as ‘Movember’. What exactly is Movember all about? Well, it’s about men’s health.

Movember is an annual event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men’s health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer, and mental health.

Men’s health is in crisis. Men are dying on average 5 years earlier than women, and for largely preventable reasons. A growing number of men – around 10.8M globally – are facing life with a prostate cancer diagnosis. Globally, testicular cancer is the most common cancer among young men. And across the world, one man dies by suicide every minute of every day, with males accounting for 69% of all suicides. []

I have had many male clients who see how massage benefits their health. Some men still feel that things like massage are for pampering women. The benefits for both women and men far exceed simple pampering. Massage is great for promoting better sleep and reducing stress. These are probably two of the best reasons to get a massage! Massage also greatly helps sore muscles, especially in the neck and back. Why not put the pain medication down and see how a regular massage can greatly improve your health.

Creative Wellness Solutions provides a convenient massage with innumerable benefits on a comfortable massage chair. You do not need to climb onto a table or remove clothing and no oils are used. You can choose from a head and face, upper body, or legs and feet massage, or any combination.
