Fibromyalgia – Massage techniques to combat the disease

Fibromyalgia is defined as an extremely painful and inflammatory chronic syndrome that affects thousands of people annually. This condition of chronic pain is characterized by a musculoskeletal disorder, which can present changes in the fascia, muscle and joint of the human body and still cause stress and anxiety.

Patients with fibromyalgia present with fatigue and generally feel very tired when performing simple daily activities due to the sleep impairment that the disease can cause.

Studies show that fibromyalgia occurs in 5% of the American population, 10% of the Brazilian population (low social class) and reaches the population between 30 and 60 years.

Currently some institutes use massage techniques to combat the disease, since massage can boost the circulation stimulus and release of anti-stress hormones.

Patients undergoing treatment say that it is possible to decrease more than 50% of the pain caused by the disease, so the technique is ideal for those who prefer to seek non-pharmacological therapies that consist of educating the patient to improve their current life situation, stimulating health and well-being without the use of medicines that can cause damage to your body.
