Will massage help me? Or will it hurt?


Massage can often ease muscular aches – at least for some people. It can help to break up the rope-like knotted muscles so typical of myofascial pain. But be careful – many people with fibro report that they find massage to be more painful than pleasant. Before spending money on a professional massage, have someone lightly massage your neck and shoulder area and see how it feel. If it hurts, think twice about going for the expensive job.
