Everybody has had a tummy ache in his/her life. When you were little, mom might have given you a dose of Pepto-Bismol or Kaopectate and put you to bed. Stomach cramps are a common problem and usually are not terribly serious. But they can be terribly uncomfortable especially when they recur over and over. Fortunately, there are techniques Sean’s Massage Center can use to help your body remedy the causes.

 

Sean McGrath offers a variety of methods to help ease the discomfort. Ailments in the digestive tract might be the result of constipation, Crohn’s disease, irritable bowel syndrome and about 40 other causes. Some require complex medical treatments, but many are easily treatable with message therapy or another form of alternative healing.

 

Treating period pains at Sean’s Massage Center

  • Swedish massage therapy is one technique that can be used in treating certain digestive disorders. This uses lengthy strokes with light to medium pressure on the select areas surrounding the area being disturbed. This and other massage techniques can be used in coordination with trigger point therapy when focus is on a particular location, a specific place in the abdominal musculature or soft tissue that needs to be stimulated.
  • Reflexology is another remedy used to relieve painful digestive problems. This technique stimulates certain “nerve zones” (pressure points) in the feet or sometimes the hands. Reflexologists tell us every function in the human body is connected to your feet – and in some cases – to the hands also. Massaging the right location on your feet or hands can help relieve discomfort in your digestive system.

 

Other treatments for period pain

 

Acupuncture has been around for more than two millennia as an effective treatment practiced by Eastern healers. The staff at Sean’s Massage Center can offer this ancient technique as a remedy for most digestive discomfort. The practitioner uses tiny needles to stimulate natural “acupoints” on the human body.

 

Studies have shown that patients feel at most a slight prick, or nothing at all, when being treated by a professional. When the appropriate “acupoints” are stimulated, certain muscles are relaxed, blood flows as it is supposed to and the pain subsides. In the cases of chronic recurring pain, a series of treatments might be necessary.

 

The heated stone therapy offered at Sean’s Massage Center works to relax muscles with warmed and oiled stones placed along the targeted areas, often coordinated with cooler stones to create the needed balance in the blood flow. It has been found effective in relieving digestive disorders and a host of other problems.
