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.
