1. Massage Therapy as a Gift 

When you want to give the gift of massage to a mother, one would prefer that it is from a professional therapist.

It does not just last for an hour but it is something that helps eliminate preexisting pains, strains or anything else in between. This is the gift that extends to a long time. 

Researches have indicated that massage is very effective in preventing and treating a range of physical and psychological conditions.

The phrase ‘massage therapy’ interprets broad techniques that differ in the way we use touch and pressure to manipulate someone’s muscles and soft tissues. 

The age-old techniques are a form of manual therapy that improve health and wellbeing in many ways, such as:

  • Therapeutic effect on the mind and body, 
  • Increases circulation
  • Activates the nervous system
  • Relieves stress
  • Relaxes
  • Relieves pain & physical dysfunction 
  • Prevents future injuries

2. Pelvic Health Physical Therapy for Women 

Extremely beneficial therapy that corrects several problems you cannot pinpoint. Very often, the dysfunction of the pelvic floor muscles cause symptoms such as:

  • Urinary problems, like urinary incontinence, frequency, urgency, painful urination, difficulty in starting, stopping or fully emptying the bladder.
  • Bowel problems
  • Faecal incontinence
  • Unexplained pain/ Pelvic pain
  • Pain in the genital area
  • Rectal pain
  • Painful or difficult intercourse

Pelvic Floor muscles control the urinary & reproductive system including muscles, ligaments, nerves, and connective tissue.

They play a vital role in women’s health by providing support for the bladder, genitals, uterus, and anus. PFT improves sexual function and cures many issues.

3. Prenatal and Postnatal Therapy for Women 

This is a specific branch that pertains to pregnant women and new mothers.

Childbirth and pregnancy take their toll not only on the body but also on emotions and stress levels.

As a thank, you, give your special woman a pleasant gift, her own time in which she can relax and rehabilitate.

Post and prenatal physio address various issues related to the uterus, the abdominal muscles, headaches, neck strain, backache, tight hamstrings, and so many others. 

All women are different and have myriad hardships, pains, or sensations that physiotherapy can entirely improve.
