Real Men Get Acupuncture

Let’s keep this simple: A guide to self-care.

Let's start with the basics. . .

YES: You need a pedicure. Why? Because your feet - and probably your partner - will thank you. Softening calluses will help your feet in the long run. Out with the old in with the new, they will not make your feet sensitive but rather keep them agile so you can spend more time doing the things you love. Plus they’ll get a super massage and let's face it you use those babies for just about everything you do; your feet deserve to be appreciated. Do this once every one to two months.

YES: You need a haircut. It doesn't have to be an all day affair. A typical men's haircut at The Loft is about 45 minutes which gives you just enough time to finish your beer.  Here's a hot tip: pre-book recurring appointments for the entire year; certainly never leave without scheduling your next. That way you don't end up looking like your eighth grade photo.

You would never think to keep driving your car without an oil change, tune-up, and decent tires, so why expect that from your body? This is the most important tool you own! Take care of it and it will pay dividends. 

NO:  Massage and acupuncture are not luxuries.  Book a massage at least once a month and think of it like checking your oil. An acupuncturist is like your local mechanic - bring in that body at the first sign of squealing, grinding, popping, or rattling. Never go more than three months without checking under the hood.

ROI: The Hammam is hot and cold therapy to relieve muscle and joint pain, boost the immune system, detoxify the body and promote deep relaxation. It has a dry sauna, steam sauna, and cold options that you can schedule anytime. It's basically your in-town alternative to the hot spring. Access is now offered as a membership.

In the early 1990s, Red Light Therapy (RLT) was used by scientists to help grow plants in space. Scientists found that the intense light from red light-emitting diodes (LEDs) helped promote growth and photosynthesis of plant cells. On earth, it promotes wound healing and tissue repair. Add it to your acupuncture treatment and magically erase that tendonitis or muscle strain. 

Schedule your tune-up today. Appointments can be made online or call 406.586.0530.
