Massage for women


How massage helps women
Massage for transitions and PMS

If you are a woman, massage can help support you in many of your transitions from adolescence, motherhood and beyond menopause.

How can massage help?

Massage offers the time and space to relax. During a massage, you breathe deeply and let go of anxiety and irritability. Massage helps eases headaches and neck tightness. It can release tension that restricts circulation and causes pain.

Massage relieves tension in muscles around the joints, making movement easier and less painful. Keeping muscles and joints moving may be the best thing you can do to maintain healthy movement and your feeling of well-being.

Massage increases energy and the ability to focus. Improved circulation to the brain results in increased energy and ability to concentrate. At the same time, massage improves sleep. Less anxiety and muscle tension will make it easier to relax when you are ready for bed.

Massage helps moisturize your skin. Massage uses high quality oils and lotions that are good for your skin.

Finally, massage promotes a positive body image. We massage therapists are in the business to help people enjoy their bodies more fully. Each session should allow you a feeling of reconnecting with and honoring your body.

Especially for PMS

If you suffer from premenstrual syndrome, massage may help. In a study at the University of Miami's Medical School, women suffering from PMS experienced reduced anxiety, depression and pain immediately after receiving massage.

If you can't get in for a massage when you have PMS symptoms, have a friend or family member press with heels of the hand down the muscles on the sides of the spine from waist to sacrum (the triangular bone at the bottom of the spine). Press through clothing, or use a little oil on bare skin. Aromatherapists recommend blending a few drops of lavender, clary sage and geranium essential oils in your massage oil to further aid in reducing pain and other symptoms.
