Fibromyalgia Massage ...
and it's benefits for your pain!

Fibromyalgia massage helps patients naturally deal with the pain and symptoms associated with this disease.

If you have been diagnosed with this disease, or if you know someone who has, you know the intense pain it can cause. But, specialized massage techniques are proving to greatly decrease pain and muscle tension.

Learning how to give a massage to help with the pain, might also help to lower the stress and anxiety symptoms as well. 

About Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia is a severe pain in the muscles and the fibrous connective tissues (tendons and ligaments). It has been associated with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, or CFS.

It often causes severe muscle tension and tightness in several "hot spots" throughout the body. The tightness can feel like bound up muscles and may sometimes radiate heat and be sore to the touch.

This Massage for Fibromyalgia DVD contains step-by-step instructions on how to massage a person with this disease, as well as informative details about the health benefits for the patient/client.

This is a clip of that DVD:

Benefits of Fibromyalgia Massage

Massage is great to help loosen muscles that are chronically tight, tender and sensitive. It helps to calm nerves and release the stress of dealing with the pain.

Some physicians have associated a change in barometric pressure, such as rain or cold temperature changes, to dramatically affect the exacerbation of symptoms. Others associate vitamin or nutrient deficiencies to be the source that causes pain spikes.

For whatever the cause of this disease, studies have shown that regular massage greatly impacts quality of life for many patients, especially if the therapist is trained in these specialized techniques.

By working the 18 major pain points or "hot spots" for this massage, the regular therapy allows the muscles and connective tissue in the body to truly relax and release some of the inflammation associated with this disease.

Other Resources For Help

About Me

A few things about me and the creation of Massage Education Guide....

After 20 years of practicing massage, I decided to create an online resource for people who want to learn about massage, and how to relax our minds to release anxiety and stress.

I have had many clients come for massage, only to discover they just needed to talk, or they needed to cry, and let go of pain or worry, or stress, in a place they felt safe

Life has changed a lot over the past 6 months, and going to a spa may not be an option financially, or even safe, with social distancing guidelines.

Finding a way to relax our minds, and release stress and tension at home, is critical for a healthy immune system, as we find our way through this pandemic.

I've created a spa recipe book, filled with easy at-home spa ideas, to help you relax and release stress from your body at home.

Now, because of this virus, I teach folks about the benefits of massage products, essential oils, body scrubs, bath bombs, and other make-at-home goodies that help us de-stress in the comfort and safety of home ... to relax the mind and body, and make life so much better!

What's my passion? Massage therapy always and forever is my love, but helping people learn how to relax at home, is a very close second!

So, let's learn how to relax, to release stress, and rock this pandemic together!

Solo Build It!
