I had deep tissue massage yesterday. I knew it was a no-no and she said so too, but I was so tight I needed to have the kinks worked out. She said people with fibro shouldn't have one like that because they will pay for it later. I figured, I was in so much pain already, I may as well have an hour or two of feeling good and feel good it did. It hurt but felt good a the same time. I am sore today though. Some spots are super tender, but it was worth it to me.
My hands and feet have been a HUGE problem, she put hot stones on them for me and that was just delightful. I wish I could say today they all feel better, but the ball of foot pain is just as bad and so are my hands. It's so frustrating.
I am tired of this pain.
I have massages regularly. My therapist does a combination of deep tissue and relaxation. I am usually sore and even tired the next day but by the 2nd day, I feel better and feel so much better in the long run. I hope and pray you feel better tomorrow.
i had deep tissue for almost 2 years. had to stop due to another health thing. still do a bit on my fanny. i give myself 2 days to let all those toxins they release out. by day 3 i feel much better, or did. giggle.
it depends on what your goal is. mine was for waking up my muscles and toning them thru massage. now i do what zen calls fluff and buff with a bit of tuff. giggle.
remember every body is different. like you i have to get those knots broken up. they regrow but for a bit i feel good. days 4 to 6 are my best. listen to your body. she knows what she needs.
do some heat and small walks today. also drink half a gallon of water. for feet next time ask for a salts cleansing. those help my feet more than stones do.
rest and relax. breath deeply. take a nap. giggle.
I would like to try yoga too! I will also get the gear and see if it helps thanks for the idea! Haven't tried massage yet, too expensive and I don't want hubby to do it because I pinch nerves so easily If he messes up I'm in for it! I'll wait for the lottery and then a professional
yoga is good for the mind and body. brings and restores harmony to our oneness. enjoy girls. you won't regret it. just be sure if a position does not feel safe to do it minimally. it's not a contest of you against the dvd. giggle. it's peaceful slow meditative movement.
did i mention i love it? giggle.
