Massage for Fibromyalgia

Absolute Body Balance
Best Raleigh Massage









Have the aches and pains of fibromyalgia robbed you of your energy and vitality? If so, then massage therapy might be just what you need to help put some spring back in your step. Research has shown that receiving massages on a regular basis reduces stress and pain and helps the body function in a more well-balanced way.

What is fibromyalgia? It is said to be a chronic painful condition that produces musculoskeletal pain and tenderness at specific locations in the body, pain and swelling in the joints, chronic sleep problems, and fatigue. Recently, massage therapy has become extremely popular among fibromyalgia patients. Massage works to reduce pain; eliminate stiffness; increase blood circulation to the muscles, allowing for faster muscle repair; and improve sleep patterns among a number of other health benefits. Massage helps manage the pain in fibromyalgia sufferers because it stimulates the central nervous system by enhancing the production of certain pain blockers, including endorphins and serotonin. These hormones work to counteract pain signals conducted by the brain; thus, dramatic pain relief in the client.

Ask your therapist what type of massage will work best for you, but most will advise a Swedish massage would work best for most clients starting out. This will allow your therapist get an overall assessment of your problem areas. The routine can consist of light to moderate pressure and stroking of the head, neck, shoulders, back, arms, hands, legs, and feet. As you progress with your massage treatments, your therapist may suggest having some myofascial work performed, which will help relieve tightness in the connective tissue or fascia. When done properly, it may decrease the connective tissue’s pull on bones, allowing muscle fibers to relax and lengthen. Your therapist may also carry out some passive stretching; another approach to reducing muscle tension and spasms. Your therapist will perform the stretch while you fully relax. This increases range of motion and helps with the loss of flexibility often seen in fibromyalgia patients.

There are many different fibromyalgia treatments available and each person needs a customized treatment program. Adding massage once a month or every other week can dramatically help with your symptoms and alleviate the pain. It’s important to work with your doctor to find a new combination of approaches that fit your lifestyle while addressing your unique needs. Remember, in the area of soreness reduction nothing works faster than massage!

Absolute Body Balance offers a new client special so you can try one of our licensed experienced massage therapists for only $55 at your first one hour massage. By appointment only, 919-84109344 or www.absolutebodybalance.com.

Summertime Massage

Absolute Body Balance
Best Raleigh Massage

Summer is here! Many of us are increasingly active with more daylight hours and thoughts of a better beach body so we are doing more and maybe even doing some new exercises and fitness routines. We may also be experiencing new aches and pains from muscles and joints that haven’t been utilized in quite this way for many months. This is a good time to consider massage therapy to keep you going and to keep your muscles, bones, and connective tissue in good working condition. The benefits of massage include:

Relieves stress, pain, pain induced anxiety, and muscle congestion
Improves range of motion increasing flexibility and muscle tone
Improves sleep patterns
Improves metabolic waste removal strengthening immune function
Improves alertness
Reduces swelling
Clears thinking
Encourages faster healing time
Relieves tension headaches
Provides a sense of well-being
Reduces fatigue
Supports white blood cell proliferation aiding our immune system
Reduces depression
Relives symptoms of nausea and vomiting for the cancer patient
Enhances body image

A professional massage therapist will apply the perfect techniques to muscles and joints to release tightness, cramping, spasms, and knots. Sometimes you only need a “specific massage” – working on the shoulders, neck, arms, back or legs rather than a whole body massage. These specific massage sessions are just as effective in providing the benefits of massage, feel great and can be thirty to sixty minute long.

Keep yourself going great all summer, schedule a massage to be at your optimal best so you can do whatever with greater ease and comfort. Absolute Body Balance in Raleigh offers a new client special, $55 one hour massage for your first session. Try massage at a discount, 919-841-9344, by appointment only. www.absolutebodybalance.com
