Everyone has seen stock photos of a woman on a massage table with big stones set on her back. But have you ever actually experienced a hot stone massage before? This modality is one of the most ancient forms of massage and has been practiced in native cultures from Central America to North Asia. It began being integrated into modern massage techniques in the early 90s in Arizona, and has spread like wildfire to spas across the globe. Many independent therapists now offer hot stone therapy as an addition to their regular massage routine.
Basically, smooth, flat stones are heated in a water bath to absorb warmth. They radiate this warmth slowly and evenly. The masseur may use the stone as a massage tool, or he may place the stones along your chakras or meridiens (energy centers and pathways). Or, he may place them at a particularly sore spot, or ...Read more »

Everyone knows that massage is relaxing. But there is emerging medical proof that it can actually help treat sleep disorders like insomnia. The Institute for Integrative Health Care Studies recently released a report mentioning massage as a very effective treatment for chronic insomnia. While there are numerous components that contribute to sleep, one of the most critical is the hormone serotonin which is produced in the intestinal tract, and then used by the body to create melatonin, which regulates our natural sleep cycle. The University of Miami School of Medicine took part in a study that determined that subject receiving regular massage experienced improved sleep and an increase in seratonin levels.
So if you've been having trouble getting quality sleep at night, regular massages may be just the answer!

Masseurfinder has recently acquired new technology that helps us ensure that the photos you see on Masseurfinder ads are actual, legitimate photos of the therapist. This technology has helped us clear out many ads on the site that were using fake or copyrighted photos, like the photo on the left, which is actually of a famous actor, but a masseur was trying to use the photo to represent himself by just blurring out the face.
As we continue to increase our scrutiny of photos, you, the massage client, can rest assured that when you view a Masseurfinder ad, you are seeing an accurate representation of the massage therapist who will perform your massage.
However, as always, you should also rely on testimonials to help make your decision about which masseur to hire, as it's impossible for us to guarantee, at any given instant, that every photo on the site ...Read more »

Over the past week, Masseurfinder staff have been doing some housecleaning in the Therapeutic category of the site, to improve the level of professionalism reflected in that section. This part of the audit focused primarily on the photos on Therapeutic ads, to make sure they were in line with regulations set by the national certification organizations which administer the tests and certifications that most states recognize for their licensing programs. While many types of massage are offered by advertisers on Masseurfinder, we want the Therapeutic section to be the best place on the web to find spa-quality, professional, licensed massage therapists who actively seek out the male community as their clientele. We will continue to do everything possible to keep this category very professional and respectable, and we hope you enjoy it!

Massage laws and regulations vary dramatically from place to place. Some states like Utah and New York, require 1000 hours of study to be licensed, while 500 hours is more common in other states. Florida, on the other hand, just requires that you graduate from an approved school, and has no minimum hours requirement. 6 states have NO laws regulating massage therapy whatsoever: Minnesota, Alaksa, Kansas, Wyoming, Oklahoma, and Vermont. California has never had a mandatory massage licensing program, but just recently they instated a voluntary program that masseurs can choose to participate in, and have a state-recognized license, but it's not required. (However, many major cities like Los Angeles regulate massage on the city or county level.) Then some wacky states like Oregon are so specific in their massage code that they give specific definitions for internal body cavities which can and cannot be massaged. (You might be ...Read more »
