Treatments for Period Pains
Use aromatherapy body rubs, bath oils, compresses and vapours to combat the physical and emotional symptoms caused by period pains and PMS.
Combat PMS with a regular full body massage during the two weeks before menstruation. Use a blend of essential oils that encourage relaxation.
A self massage of the abdominal area, hips and lower back will help to relieve the pain and discomfort of periods. To get the best out of your massage, remember these simple techniques :
- Featherlight strokes in figure-eight movement over the abdomen are best.
- Massage pressure points in the lower back.
An aromatherapy massage to the neck and shoulders containing chamomile and lavender will soothe irritability and tearfulness, two of the conditions most commonly associated with Premenstrual Syndrome.
Perform an abdominal massage by using featherlight strokes. Include clary sage in the massage blend to relax the muscles located within the uterus.
