Reiki for Fibromyalgia, yes or no?


Reiki has been suggested as a possible healing power for Bipolar and other mental disorders. Doctors are divided in their opinions on whether it works and the same goes for Fibromyalgia.

Doctors just can’t decide definitively one way or the other. The cost could be prohibitive unless you find it to definitely help.

Give it a try and see if it works or not for you. I have had some Reiki and not sure I can say whether it helped or not. I did find it relaxing though.

Fibromyalgia and Massage


I used to love massage. Nothing like a great massage to soothe my aching soul.

Unfortunately one day the massage was so painful I could barely let her touch me. I finally made it through and managed not to scream at her. I didn’t understand.

Years later I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and I understood why it hurt. 2 of the pain trigger points are right where she was concentrating her massage. I figured my days of massage were over.

My daughter also has Fibro and has massages all the time. She says they help her pain. I finally went to her massage therapist, made sure she understood I have Fibro and had a comfortable massage.

It is possible to have a massage with Fibromyalgia, you just need the right practitioner and type of massage. Always let them know before they start. A good practitioner can give you a healing massage.
