January 16, 2010


John James, LMT

Fibromyalgia massage therapy is now very popular with fibromyalgia patients. In a 2005 survey of over 2000 people with fibromyalgia, including Dallas Metroplex respondents, a significant majority said that they considered massage therapy as the treatment option of choice.

Our Fibromyalgia Massage Therapy Is Hands On

Fibromyalgia symptoms range from from “generalized achiness” to  trigger point sensitivity to completely debilitating pain over the entire body. Our fibromyalgia  massage therapy  manipulates your muscles and soft tissues in order to provide relief from pain, relieve stress, increase your flexibility and also provide you a peaceful, relaxing experience. Done with the hands, a variety of techniques from Myofascial Release, CranioSacral Therapy and Reflexology are blended into a unique, pain-relieving experience.

Massage Gives Pain Relief

Massage therapy is one of the most beneficial treatments for fatigue and pain caused by fibromyalgia. A 1996 research study reported decreases of pain symptoms in 38% of patients after receiving just ten 30-minute sessions of massage therapy for fibromyalgia pain. It is clear from this study and others that significant pain relief is possible with a program of fibromyalgia massage. A significant improvement in their sleeping was also reported: fibromyalgia sufferers slept longer periods of time, and, they were less disturbed by a variety of sleep disorders, after fibromyalgia massage sessions.

Benefits of Massage Therapy

Specific benefits of massage therapy for fibromyalgia reported by our patients include:

  • improved blood circulation in the muscles, facilitating muscle repair
  • enhanced flexibility
  • better range of motion
  • reduction of stress and incidence of depression
  • significant pain relief
  • reduced stiffness
  • better sleep patterns.

As part of our fibromyalgia massage sessions we provide Nutritional information and recommend specific techniques gleaned from over a decade of successfully facilitating Fibromyalgia support groups.

We would be happy to discuss your personal circumstance and fibromyalgia symptoms. Please call to find out how we may be able to help; there is no obligation:
