That is great Caren. My psycologist does massage as part of her treatment. I don't get them a lot, we seem to talk too long, but I can always have one if I want to. That is so cool, I bet that you feel a lot better.

Good for you!!!

Oh my, my therapist would never do that............how grand Karen. :-)

A massage would be great.  Also a facial comes with a massage of your arms and shoulders and neck, back of neck...........oooooohhhhhhhhh.

I need one now.

Thanks

Should we ask for a manicure while we are at it, or a waxing of some sort?LOL...

My psychologist gets a lot of fibromyalgia patients. She is also my psychiatrists nurse. So it works out really well for me.

Hugs,

Oh wow, a massage AND therapy..I'm jealous! I think the facial would be good too..they are soo luxuriant and relaxing. We could finish off with chocolate dipped strawberries..

No pedicure for me..my feet are all blistered and gnarly from all the jogging I do..nasty side effect but well worth it.

No waxing! smhair

I am such a spoiled girl! My sweet sweet husband massages something on me every single night. Because I also suffer with osteoarthritis and Fibro. When the anxiety hits hard, I will lay down with the fan in my face and he will softly rub my back until I feel better.

And absolutely 100% I will not share him:)

Massages are awesome. I use massage envy (www.massageenvy.com). Physical therapy helped my w/my fibro back pain. My primary doc signed off for 3 months of it. She used this warm electronic vibrating thing (get your minds out of the gutter)! It relaxed my muscles and helped my back pain.
