YES, Absolutely! I suffer from Fibromyalgia and my massage therapist Phil Adamczyk does more for me in an hour that the physical therapist does in an hour. I feel that my muscles are looser and have less pain when he is done. Phil will work on all the tight or sore areas so I come out feeling refreshed and not in more pain. I travel 3 hours one way to Townsend, WI to have an appointment with Phil, but both myself and my husband feel it is worth it. The physical therapist only works on one area and that area usually hurts more when she is done.
