Fibromyalgia, an economically burdensome condition, is no fun. At. All. It’s a mystery, albeit extremely painful issue for a lot of people. From personal experience, massage helps FM symptoms tremendously. Not just physically, but mentally and emotionally as well.
Research has reported that up to 90% of individuals with FM have used at least one form of complementary and alternative treatments to manage their symptoms. Massage therapy, as one of these treatments, has been widely used for FM. It can improve pain, anxiety, depression, and sleep disturbance.
Massage therapy, used consistently for five weeks, has been shown to have beneficial immediate effects on improving pain, anxiety, and depression caused by FM.
Massage is extremely therapeutic in helping a FM sufferer to calm down and relax, reducing emotional stress, which in turn reduces physical, muscular stress. Be sure to tell your therapist that you have FM, and work with them to ensure a comfortable pressure. Deep, painful massage, is not recommended for clients with FM. Keep it light, soothing and therapeutic.
