Massage Therapy for Women

The power of touch goes much deeper than the physical body; touch has the ability to facilitate change on the emotional, energetic and spiritual level as well. As  massage therapists, we have noticed how emotional stresses manifest in the physical body. It has been our goal at The Red Tent to help women find the link between their mind, body, and spiritual path.

Massage is one of the oldest healing arts. Chinese records dating back 3,000 years document its use. The ancient Hindus, Persians, and Egyptians applied forms of massage for many ailments, and Hippocrates wrote papers recommending the use of rubbing and friction for joint and circulatory problems. Today, the benefits of massage are varied and far-reaching, massage therapy has proven beneficial for many chronic conditions, including low back pain, arthritis, bursitis, fatigue, high blood pressure, diabetes, immunity suppression, infertility, smoking cessation, depression, and more. And, as so many of us already know, massage also helps relieve the stress and tension of everyday living that can lead to disease and illness.

Massage for Breast Health

The Red Tent’s Breast Health Program

Essential to every woman’s beauty routine is the care of her breasts. A simple and nurturing way women can encourage healthy, vibrant and beautiful breasts is with Breast Massage.

Yet most women at some time in their life experience symptoms like congestion and tenderness in our breasts. Most women will experience during their lifetime conditions related to the breast. This includes premenstrual breast pain, swelling, tenderness, fibrocystic breast lumps, discomforts with breastfeeding, scar tissue or problems with any breast surgery and just simply recovering gracefully from mastectomy and breast reconstruction surgery.

Breast massage may be an important therapeutic modality for easing or preventing breast related conditions. Life cycle changes are associated with a variety of breast discomforts. Massage therapy is a gentle and effective way to promote breast health and help relieve breast tissue symptoms.

We are all concerned about monitoring for breast tissue changes. The massage therapist is also a skilled palpator who can support the routines of regular breast monitoring.
