A friend of mine suffers from fibromyalgia, and I don’t use the word “suffer” lightly. Her body oftentimes feels like its in a vise, she’s told me. She is stiff, fatigued and in pain much of the time. May is National Fibromyalgia Education and Awareness Month. You can use the publicity in place for this event to inform fibromyalgia patients about the benefits of massage to their condition. This link to the MASSAGE Magazine article about this event includes links to research on touch for fibromyalgia that we’ve covered.
