Re: rheumatoid arthritis - using a jacuzzi
Therapeutic massage is helpful too. I found that just by having my husband perform a deep massage on my entire body, limbs, arms, feet, everywhere, that immediatly afterwards, I felt relief from being all bound up muscle and connective tissue wise.
it's truly amazing.
My rheumy dr. wanted this performed on me when she referred me for physical therapy but the facility I went to, does not perform this method of therapy. it's a shame because I found it really really works.
it gets the lymphatic system moving which is so important for our organs and body to get the necessary oxygen and blood flow.
I know I live a sedentary life but with all the pain I suffer with on a daily basis, I find it almost impossible to get motivated enough to push myself to do things.
I opt for the massage since I can't afford a jacuzzi or the place to put it.
