Menopause occurs at the natural end of a woman’s reproductive cycle. So why not treat it naturally? Both aromatherapy massage and regular massage treatments may reduce menopausal symptoms and aromatherapy massage may be more effective than either therapy alone. Other integrative therapies that may help alleviate menopausal symptoms include acupuncture, meditation, yoga, foods rich in phytoestrogens, such as soy, and black cohosh (a popular alternative to prescription hormonal therapy). Be sure to talk with your health care provider before adding any botanicals to your health regimen and ask about the right dose for you.
