Massage Chair for Menstrual Pain Relief

While more research is needed to determine more exactly the causes of menstrual and pre menstrual pain and the efficacy of massage as treatment, much has already been established. A study published in the Journal of Psychosomatic Obstetrics and Gynecology investigated a variety of therapies for symptoms.
For this study, researchers from the Touch Research Institute in the University of Miami School of Medicine recruited 24 women aged 19 – 45 years and suffering from opens in a new windowPMDD (premenstrual dysphoric disorder).
The women were randomly assigned to either massage therapy or relaxation techniques (breathing, stretching and yoga-like exercises etc.).
The results supported massage therapy as effective treatment:
