When combining massage with the recommended treatment from a physician many sufferers lead a fairly normal life free from many of the symptoms of this disease.

In a recent study of fibromyalgia patients massage therapy was overwhelmingly selected as the best treatment option. Massage can increase circulation of blood to the muscles, which will aid in delivering nutrients to area for better muscle repair. Massage will also increase flexibility, range of motion, and reduce pain and stiffness.

After just ten 30 minute massage sessions many suffers report a 38% reduction of pain in their muscles.

By purchasing and using a massage chair in their home a fibromyalgia patient can have a greatly improved life with less dependence on medications to ease their painful muscles and joints. A massage chair makes it possible for the fibromyalgia patient to get the relief from the pain they need at their own convenience and in their own home.
