Fibromyalgia Massage may help people who suffer from this chronic and most debilitating condition. Massage requires the physical manipulation of muscles and tissues to encourage better circulation in these muscles. This will increase the flow of nutrients and eliminate waste products.
The benefits for those with fibromyalgia may be:
– reducing the heart rate.
– relaxing the muscles.
– promoting better flexibility.
– improving the client’s overall sense of well-being.
A variety of massage techniques specific to fibromyalgia may be used depending on the sensitivity levels and tender points of the person. Deep tissue massage may not be suitable for some and therefore a more gentle massage would be adopted.
Because of the sensitivity to touch it is important that communication between the client and therapist is engaged to ensure a comfortable session every time.
Although massage therapy will not cure fibromyalgia, it may be an effective complement to more conventional means of treatment.
It is understood that it can be difficult for some people to travel to a therapist’s clinic. Home visits can be arranged with all equipment provided.
Before any massage therapy is considered it is suggested that medical advice is taken.
