Fibromyalgia and Trigger Point Therapy


Trigger point therapy has been widely recommended to ease Fibromyalgia pain.

Regular massage therapy is suggested to be done a minimum of once a month.

Depending on your massage therapist they can make a difference in pain during the treatment.

I had stopped massages because they had been painful, but my daughter found a place that was able to do a massage for me without pain.

Myofascial Release for Fibromyalgia?


It’s common to hear someone with Fibromyalgia say, “My muscles ache all over my body, all the time.” Lately scientists have turned their studies to the fascia rather than the muscles to understand the cause of Fibromyalgia pain, they’re looking less and less at the muscles and instead focusing more on the fascia.

Evidence that the unique pain of Fibromyalgia may stem largely from the fascia has led to interest in a type of massage called myofascial release. This massage smooths down the fascia which tends to bunch up under the skin and pull on other parts of the body causing the pain.

As with any massage for Fibromyalgia make sure to find someone trained in this type of massage and Fibromyalgia and make sure to speak up if you feel pain during or after.

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.
