Do You Have Fibromyalgia?
If you have Fibromyalgia, or you suspect you do, you know all too well the frustrating pain that comes and goes and moves around. It doesn’t help that your pain is compounded by the negative effects of everyday stress.
Pain is stressful. It’s a viscous cycle.
Massage can help break that cycle.
Not only can massage help with the pain of Fibromyalgia, but research studies confirm that massage helps calm the nervous system, reduces anxiety, and improves sleep.
At this time, there is no known cure for Fibromyalgia. Each patient is different and treatment plans can include a combination of therapies to relieve symptoms.
Massage is a natural remedy for treating some of the major symptoms and is backed by sound research studies.
The benefits of therapeutic massage for Fibromyalgia suffers include:
- Relief from sore and stiff muscles
- Reduction of stress and anxiety
- Increased restful sleep
- Increased energy
- Increased mood and positive outlook
The Best Time for Massage for Fibromyalgia
The symptoms of Fibromyalgia can vary from mild to severe. Some patients find massage helpful even during severe flare-ups. Others prefer to wait until their pain is at a lower level to receive massage. Your health care provider and massage therapist may be able to help you decide, but ultimately you know what is best for you!
