The power of touch for those suffering with Fibromyalgia

Pain can make it difficult to enjoy everyday activities,but for fibromyalgia patients, pain can be constant, interfering with sleep, work and daily tasks. According to the American Chronic Pain Association, fibromyalgia affects more than 6 million Americans. The origins of this disorder are still relatively unknown.Though there is no cure, massage therapy may be one way to make life a little easier for people with fibromyalgia.

Massage and Mesothelioma

What Massages will help Mesothelioma Patients Feel Better?
The American Cancer Society endorses massage as "one of the most supportive and helpful complementary therapies available to patients," yet not all forms of massage will be appropriate for mesothelioma patients. Clinical therapeutic massage is the ideal type of massage for cancer patients. They are administered by a professional massage therapist who has been specially trained to work safely and effectively with cancer patients. Although massage is generally safe, cancer patients have different requirements than healthy individuals.

Why Touch is needed in our society now more than ever!

ShareModern day society, especially in America, is deprived of touch. We barely even say hello to one another anymore. That is why Massage Therapy is such a needed healing modality in our world. Touch has been scientifically proven to be one of humans essential needs to thrive and live a healthy and happy life. Babies that aren't touched enough fail to grow and don't develop properly. Adults that aren't touched enough become depressed and angry, shut down and alienated from society. Non-sexual but loving touch, which is what massage therapy is, reminds people of what it feels like to connect with another human being on a deeper level.
