Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Now Recognized and Helped with Massage
Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome have been little-understood by the medical community for some time. It’s only recently that they are now recognized by the medical community as real and actual disorders. For years the medical community assumed it was all “in your head” or merely came from an underlying emotional disorder.
The Spokane region has an abnormally high incident of these disorders and as I have family and friends affected, it has always been one of my focuses.
Anyone suffering from either a diagnosed or undiagnosed case can tell you it’s a very real and debilitating condition. Living with pain and/or constant fatigue is extremely draining every second of every day and effects every aspect of your life.
With the experience of treating family members over a long period of time and seeing what massage can do for these disorders, I hope I can offer you a reprieve.
I was taught that patients with Fibromyalgia would need a very light touch, especially on the tender points. However, I’ve found that there are those who need a deeper pressure to “work out” those points. We can work together to find just the right pressure and frequency of treatment to help you feel better and attain a healthier outlook and lifestyle.
The massage itself is also very supportive and comforting. The main focus is on making you feel more comfortable in your day-to-day life.
Every person with Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is unique and I want to facilitate whatever you feel fits your personal needs the best.
If touching or being touched anywhere is a painful experience for you, massage may not be a good option. However, if the highly sensitive areas are on specific parts of your body that I can avoid, massage can still be very beneficial.
If you have any questions, please contact me so we can discuss your unique needs.
