A Guide to Massage for Fibromyalgia

What is Fibromyalgia? 

Fibromyalgia is a chronic condition marked by widespread musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, and tenderness. Those suffering from it often face challenges in managing pain and maintaining a good quality of life. Unfortunately, there is no cure. The precise causes of fibromyalgia are unknown and the condition is often misunderstood and misdiagnosed. However, those living with fibromyalgia don’t need to feel helpless. Managing symptoms and living a comfortable lifestyle is achievable with the right tools. 

A soothing massage is one of the most effective fibromyalgia pain relief methods. In this article, we'll explore how specialised fibromyalgia massage chairs and fibromyalgia massage guns can provide at-home solutions for those needing comfort and relief from symptoms. Let's explore at-home massage therapy and pave the path to a more pain-free life.

At-Home Fibromyalgia Treatment Methods

Fibromyalgia may result in painful symptoms that require quick and immediate relief. A doctor or massage therapist visit might be days or even weeks away. What’s more, they can be costly! That’s where at-home treatments come in. 

Gain relief from fibromyalgia with the power of at-home massage therapy. Two excellent options for cost-effective, at-home treatment are specialised massage chairs and massage guns.

Fibromyalgia Massage Chairs 

Masseuse Massage Chairs are designed to help soothe fibromyalgia symptoms. These chairs offer more than just relaxation. With advanced SL-Track technology, they deliver targeted, full-body compression massages that mimic the human touch of a masseuse. Designed to address the specific challenges of this condition, these chairs offer a deep tissue massage for fibromyalgia that reduces pain, relieves stress, and improves your overall well-being.

The Masseuse Massage Chair collection has an option for every need and budget, from the luxurious Therapeutic Dual Pro® to budget-friendly options like the Physio+® and the product review award-winning Ultimate Chiro®. With extra-long SL-shaped curved rails, these chairs offer comprehensive massage coverage that contours to the natural shape of your spine. Independent rollers constantly knead the neck and shoulder area, and can be manually adjusted for personalised comfort. Combine this with the Hot Stone therapy function for deep massage benefits in the upper body.

Fibromyalgia Massage Guns 

If you’re seeking on-the-spot relief, Massage Guns offer a portable solution designed to alleviate fibromyalgia symptoms. These massage guns mimic the technique of a trained masseuse, delivering repetitive, high-pressure pulses into sore muscles. Quick and efficient, they provide relief without the need to schedule professional massages.

If you’re uncomfortable with hands-on massages, a personal massage gun allows you to target specific areas and control the intensity to your liking. You can address muscle soreness quickly, reduce pain and increase flexibility.

The Theragun Pro, a robust commercial-grade device, and the lightweight Theragun Elite stand are the leading models in this range. Explore the unique benefits of massage guns and experience immediate precision relief on the go.

The Effects of Massage on Nerves & Soft Tissues

Massage therapy, whether through specialised chairs or portable massage guns, can have a positive impact on nerves and soft tissues, providing relief for people with fibromyalgia. Let’s look at how this happens:

Loosen and Relax Muscles:

Massage, especially deep tissue therapy, targets tense muscles common in fibromyalgia, promoting relaxation and reducing stiffness.

Increased Circulation:

Massage improves blood flow and enhances oxygen and nutrient delivery to muscles, which is crucial for fibromyalgia management.

Endorphin Release:

The kneading motions of massage trigger the release of endorphins, offering a natural remedy for fibromyalgia pain.

Reduce Cortisol & Stress:

Massage aids in cortisol reduction, relieving stress that often adds to fibromyalgia symptoms.

In your day-to-day life, regular massages can translate to:

  • Increased flexibility
  • Reduced muscle tension
  • An overall sense of relaxation

Massages reduce cortisol and stress, promoting a healthy and comfortable lifestyle. Improved circulation provides oxygen to the muscles, easing the strain of daily activities. Likewise, the release of endorphins relieves pain and improves your mood.

Most importantly, these benefits extend to better sleep. Relaxation and pain relief create the right environment for restful, rejuvenating nights.

So, how often should you get a massage for fibromyalgia? As we all know, massages are a great way to nurture both mental well-being and physical health. For people living with fibromyalgia, regular tailored sessions can provide consistent relief. Consult your GP to determine the optimal frequency and duration for managing your symptoms effectively.
