Ease Your Pain with Massage
Everyone knows that massage feels good.
But, did you know it is also a great way to ease your pain?
I have been getting massages for years now. My husband bought me a couple 1 hour massages back in about 1996 or so for a gift and the first time I laid on the table I was uneasy and not sure what to expect. The thought of someone, other than my husband, putting their hands on my body was a bit scary and embarrassing. But, after a few massages I was more relaxed and started to look forward to the next time I could lay upon that table and just let my mind shut off and my body relax.
Back before I found out I had Fibro I would treat myself to a massage about once every 3 months or so. I did them for relaxing more than anything. Well, now that I have Fibro I do get a massage on a regular basis. About 2 times a month or as my pocketbook allows. My body hurts day in and day out and massage really helps to ease my pain.
Between my massage sessions I have found a few things to help me ease the sore muscles and stiff area’s of my body. There are many sport creams, rubs, etc., on the market today but there are not many I have found that do any good. I have been using my Young Living products and find they work better than anything else I have ever tried. Onces like Ortho Ease Massage Oil, or Deep Relief Roll-On work great for easing muscle pain. When I say I have tried them all, I am serious. I used to have Dr’s and friends/family tell me about this or that product on the market and I would buy it and try it and be so unhappy with them. These two relieve my pain from a hard workout and help ease my Fibro pain.
Massage is great for anyone, and I highly recommend you get one if you never have had one. I have even had a couple of my massage therapists use the Deep Blue while massaging me. That helps it to soak/absorb into the skin and gives a longer lasting effect on my sore body. A massage can help relieve back pain, relieve muscle tension and stiffness, reduce muscle spasms, relieve tension related headaches and eyestrain, increase relaxation, relieve stress, promote mental clarity, reduce anxiety, reduce heart rate, lower blood pressure, improve blood circulation, improve lymph flow, boost immune system, improve skin health, improve posture, enhance athletic performance, help you sleep better and more.
I have a few massage therapists I really enjoy going to. And, I found another therapist who does a hot oil treatment that is really unique and beneficial. Do you get massage? How often?
