Learn how to ease painful symptoms with massage therapy

Scottsdale, AZ (PRWEB) May 12, 2010 -- Fibromyalgia has quickly gone from being an unknown and misunderstood condition to being one of the most widely studied chronic conditions in American medicine. New treatments, medications and preventions are being developed every year to help fibromyalgia sufferers. A popular and effective treatment for individuals with fibromyalgia includes regular massage therapy. Massage Envy, the nation’s largest therapeutic massage provider helps individuals by reducing the pain and fatigue associated with the disorder and improving blood circulation.

Fibromyalgia syndrome is a complex, chronic condition of widespread muscular pain and fatigue. In addition to pain and fatigue, symptoms include sleep disturbances, restless legs and leg cramps, impaired memory and concentration, nervousness, depression, disorientation, headaches and cold intolerance. Massage Therapy helps reduce the pain, stiffness and tender points caused by fibromyalgia syndrome.

CG Funk, vice president of industry relations and product development at Massage Envy knows about fibromyalgia first hand. She was diagnosed with the condition in 1996 and has managed it through regular massage since then. “Receiving massage therapy sessions on a regular basis has helped me manage and reduce the severity of the symptoms. Massage also helps me sleep better which affects everything else,” she said. “It keeps muscles flexible, improves circulation, encourages easier sleep and reduces the often debilitating pain that accompanies this disease.”

“When beginning a massage therapy wellness plan to treat fibromyalgia, remember to consult a physician first,” said Funk. “Read all you can about the disease and start receiving weekly massage. Ask for light or medium pressure Swedish massage to start off with.”

Funk also recommends warm water tub or hot tub soaks and avoiding cold when possible. In addition, she suggests light activity every day and mild yoga or stretching classes.

Massage therapy is an effective, affordable and conservative approach when compared to other options. Benefits of massage therapy addressing fibromyalgia include:

 
  • Improved blood circulation, which increases the flow of nutrients and eliminates waste products
  • Improved range of motion and increased flexibility
  • Deeper sleep, which is important to managing fibromyalgia since the body restores itself at night
When proper massage therapy is coupled with physician-guided care, individuals can find relief from the symptoms of fibromyalgia.
