Therapeutic Massage for Women
As a woman, you are likely pulled in many different directions from the demands of work, home, and social activities. Massage therapy helps you reduce stress and provides a way to relax through life’s changes. Massage can also reduce pain caused by illness, injury, and hormonal changes.
Massage balances the central nervous system so that your body is not in the “fight or flight” made all day. It helps reduce stress related conditions such as anxiety, depression, insomnia, and headaches. When you feel renewed and restored after a massage, daily aggravations seem less important and it is easier for you to cope with life’s challenges.
Massage can help you through premenstrual symptoms such as cramps, water retention, low back pain, and helps calm your emotions.

Fibromyalgia which affects mostly women, is chronic widespread muscle pain thought to be caused by overactive nerves. Sometimes it is treated with prescription drugs that have a very long list of serious allergic reactions ranging from swelling of the face, mouth, and throat to suicidal thoughts and actions. Massage therapy is a much better choice in treating the symptoms of fibromyalgia. Specific massage techniques relieve “trigger points” and release endorphins, the body’s own natural painkiller. Massage restores blood flow to tight muscles and pushes lymph fluid through constricted areas to be processed by the lymph nodes.
Decreased fatigue and insomnia help restore the body’s balance and ability to rejuvenate and heal during sleep.
Regular massage therapy is a wonderful lifestyle choice for chronic fibromyalgia.
