Fibromyalgia is a chronic pain disorder causing widespread pain, fatigue and sleep disturbances. Reflexology is proven to be very beneficial to alleviate pain and other symptoms associated with fibromyalgia. Overall, reflexology improves body circulation, releases toxins, eases muscle tension and stimulates energy. There is a map of the body on your feet and by applying pressure to these specific trigger points it can help the areas where the pain is located in the body.
Here’s how your first session would go...Your feet will be examined and they will tell us where the pain and troubled areas are located in your body. It's not always just where you feel it. Since fibromyalgia affects the entire body, the feet can be rigid and tight. As I work on the feet, the areas of concern may include: neck, back and hips, arms and legs, head, and front chest area.
In one particular case, a client came to see me because of overall body pain and painful feet. Once I started working on their feet, the trigger points were very noticeable. The client returned 2 weeks later for a follow up assessment and their sleep had improved, their head was clearer and their feet hurt less. The client’s quality of day-to-day life improved so much that they decided to continue treatment on a monthly basis. They continue to report improvement.
Pain associated with fibromyalgia often makes getting a good night’s sleep a struggle. Reflexology can also help the body to relax and that helps to achieve a more rested sleep. Remember that conditions develop over time and therefore treatment is needed on an ongoing basis to get best results.
