As a woman, you give a lot of yourself at work, at home, or both. But you aren't made to give unendingly without replenishing. The stream of giving must come full circle, completed by receiving. By committing to care for yourself with massage therapy, you boost the physical and emotional resources that support you in doing all the things you want and need to do.
The Power of Touch Research demonstrates that human beings need touch throughout their lives. Massage is skilled touch that can benefit almost everyone, no matter their age or situation. The best known and perhaps most underrated of these benefits is stress relief. The ill effects of unrelieved stress are well-documented, and relaxing with massage can have a wide range of positive results. It can help restore your energy, relieve anxiety or depression, and increase immune function. Allowing yourself this time and place to rejuvenate can restore your sense of optimism, and help you cope with daily aggravations and emotional crises alike. At its most nurturing, massage can even support your sense of connectedness with others while affirming your feelings of worth.
Help for Specific Conditions The physical and mental benefits of massage can help improve a variety of conditions.
Headaches. Whether your headache is from eyestrain, long work hours, or emotional stress, massage provides welcome relief by kneading away tension in the head, neck, and shoulders.
Pre-menstrual syndrome. Massage can soothe emotions, ease low-back tension, and decrease the pain of menstrual cramping.
Insomnia. Massage decreases muscle tension and calms the nervous system, preparing you for more comfortable, deep, and restorative sleep.
Arthritis. Relaxing massage can help you cope with both the physical and mental stress of arthritis. It can also relieve muscle tension and increase flexibility for more comfortable movement in your daily activities.
Support Through Life's Stages
In adolescence. The safe and soothing touch of massage can help a girl become more accepting of physical and emotional changes, and teach her to release tension in a healthy way.
During pregnancy. Massage can reduce discomfort in muscles of the back, hips, and legs caused by increased or redistributed weight. Gentle stroking can lessen excess fluid retention.
