I have a sports massage regularly, tho i must admit at first i was in agony for days and i was bed bound for a few days after, however i persevered and now have one regularly, im not sure if theres a great benefit, but it helps me relax. the only problem i find is that i am reaally tired for a few days afterwards.
everyone reacts differently, but its certainly worth trying if you can afford one. i go once every 6 weeks, it would be nice to have one every month if i could afford it !

:( I have tried a massage but as others have said before even the gentlest of massages I find painful. I find soaking in a warm bath or using my wheat bags more relaxing and beneficial. Others who have posted on this site however have found a massage beneficial and I am all for any treatment that helps to relieve someone's pain.....pauline

I tried massage once years ago for my stiff neck and back, what a mistake that was, I was so ill after that..... I have been on the guaifenesin protocol for a good few years now and there is a process called mapping that records all the lumps and bumps on a blank body map, it's a tool to see how we are doing on the protocol, our lumps and bumps slowly disappear over time. Now this is a very gentle procedure and all the mapper does in run her hands very gently over our muscles, which we all know are hard, well this had me in bed for days after my first one, the pain was awful, so I know that what ever anyone tells me about massage is rubbish, because it just makes things worse.

I was told to try having a massage by my doctor but found it uncomfortable and sometimes painful, I find that some days even my skin feels sore to touch :cry: and even a gentle massage was agony. Also, I found massage caused me to have severe migraines the day after :cry: so gave up having them.
I have found that laying in a warm bath helps :D as well as using my hot water bottle on my back and neck when I am particulaly sore and stiff. I have also found that sitting up straight in my computer chair is better for me than sitting on the sofa and quite often wheel it round to watch TV. :D

:( I heard someone talking about indian head massage the other day and it sounded as though it could be quite painful. Is it a vigorous massage or a gentle one? Have thought of trying it myself........pauline

massage

Postby cat123 » Wed Oct 24, 2007 11:37 pm

indian head massage is like a butterfly touch so soothing.what hurts is lieing on the massage saddle contraption!most undignyfied!!!what with yer boobies hanging over the sides , i diddent know where to put my self!your neck is surrported,so at first you are lulled into thinkin that its going to be comfortable.but as we fibos know ,we cant sit still for long.but no matter how you try to get comfy on these massage thing beds they realy hurt. but the massage is that good you wont want it to stop.my good friend brought me the massage for my birthday.........she meant well!wait till you hear about my spray tan.it gets better
