Easing Symptoms in Fibromyalgia with Massage

Liz Garrison, LMT Oct 20, 2014

Generalized pain in a specific pattern all over the body, joint rigidity, headache, spastic colon, sleep difficulties, anxiety, and depression are all symptoms of a chronic disease called fibromyalgia.  In many fibromyalgia patients, massage is rated as the top form of therapy that helps them.

In a study published by the US National Library of Medicine National Institutes of Health, Myofasical-Release Therapy helped patients with fibromyalgia in the areas of anxiety, quality of sleep, pain, and overall quality of life over a placebo group.

Limited studies also show that any type of massage including Swedish can help a fibromyalgia patient improve their sleep patterns and quality of life.

If you have fibromyalgia and are in the Dallas area, your local Elements Massage at West Plano can help.  They offer an introductory massage starting at $49 to get you started and a monthly Wellness Program starting at $59 to keep you going.
