I’ve been a little remiss in keeping up. The world’s cutest, best boy is now gone from Earth; our 15 yr. old cute-faced lab that you see here on my site. Love you forevermore…..
Well, what I learned from my research, and the last class, is mainly these 2 points: fibromyalgia is actually a syndrome b/c it is so complex AND a massage therapist should avoid deep pressure, even if a patient requests it. Deep pressure will feel great, probably (for people with and without fibromyalgia, and there are only a few maladies that contraindicate deep pressure), during the session, but the patient will hurt, probably, for a LONG time after.
My last continuing education class is tomorrow night! I’m off to start researching on something I find interesting on massage therapy for people with fibromyalgia!
I can’t wait to see what the summit says about back pain, massage therapy, and massage therapists! Hope this month goes by very quick!
I just registered for Associated Bodywork and Massage Professionals’ and World Massage Conference’s Back-Pain Summit next month!!
