What massage is good for fibromyalgia?

5th July 2018

Fibromyalgia is characterized by chronic pain, cognitive imbalances, and tiredness. Depending on the sensitivity level, a light massage such as those offered by Swedish massage, Shiatsu, cranial-sacral therapy, reflexology, and myofascial is often beneficial. Deep tissue massage and hot stone massage are also known to be very effective against fibromyalgia when the two techniques are complemented.

  • Reflexology: points in the hands and feet are stimulated which causes a general body relaxation. It makes use of light pressure applied in short bursts.
  • Swedish massage: the entire body is massaged with the use of kneading movements and long strokes.
  • Cranial-sacral therapy: the overall muscle function can be improved by applying pressure to the key areas of the skull and the lower spine.
