Offering Fibromyalgia/Chronic Pain Management through Therapeutic Massage and Reiki Energy Work

Fibromyalgia (FM) is a chronic musculoskeletal conditions which causes widespread pain throughout the entire body which can include:  tension headaches, fatigue, joint stiffness and sleep disorders.

FM can also often mean feelings of aloneness - like the world doesn't understand how you feel.  Even your own family can forget that you hurt all the time.  Yes, some days can be much better than others - but the tenderness and the stiffness - the achiness and the lack of getting a good nights sleep - they are always there - always lurking in the shadows waiting to pounce...causing one of "those" days - you know the ones - the days when you can't even force yourself out of bed.  The days when your "pain has pain".

Its difficult because those of us with FM look normal.  There are not any outward signs of the disease.  No one can "see" our muscle pain.  We go to our health care providers hoping that we will finally find one that truly "gets it".  One that can provide some answers along with a bit of compassion.

Recent research has supported the need for FM patients to not only use traditional health care in their treatment plans but to also include some Complementary and Alternative Medicine or CAM regimines as well.  One of the most used and beneficial of these CAM modalities is Massage and Bodywork.
