How Massage Can Ease PMS Symptoms

Women experience a number of physical and emotional effects from their menstrual cycles. Our hormones are falling out of balance, sometimes causing us to feel both overjoyed and miserable within a short time span. Some women feel excruciating back soreness from barely moving, and the pain can be so bad that they might be immobile for hours. However, the many types of massage offered at LaVida Massage of Livonia can be geared toward soothing your abdomen and overall body pains to bring you some relief. 

During your massage session, your massage therapist will focus his or her attention on your most painful areas. You’ll be directed to take deep breaths while different levels of pressure are applied to ease your pain-points. If you’re like most women, you might also be experiencing aches throughout your back, arms, and legs. Your massage therapist can spend time addressing all areas on your body that are causing you discomfort to give you the most effective session.

One thing found to be very beneficial for menstrual cramps is the use of essential oils. They are a naturally soothing alternative to over-the-counter medications that can have a significant impact on mood and wellness. Aromatherapy can be very calming and helps enhance the beneficial effects massage can have on PMS symptoms.

Some of the essential oils offered by LaVida Massage of Livonia for aromatherapy include:

  1. Peppermint - Helps with exhaustion, headache, and nausea 
  2. Lavender - Eases stress, anxiety, and depression
  3. Eucalyptus - Soothes muscle and joint pain 
  4. Lemon - Used for nausea, depression, stress, insomnia
  5. Tangerine - Aids to relieve anxiety, dizziness, low energy, anger
