Thank you for responding to our post AlwaysRosie. We are still students and are actually not a part of any businesses yet, the flyer spoke of is just an educational handout that explains how massage is an alternative medicine that can benefit Lupus patients.
I did read that massage can make someone worse if it is done during a flare up, and should be done between flare ups.
from what I have learned so far people with lupus may experience, joint pain, high stress, edema, muscle pain, fatigue and other symptoms that vary person to person. what do you see most people experiencing with lupus?
redrose77 I'm glad ur is doing a little better. concerning your back, massage could reduce muscle pain & tightness, increase circulation to the area, and break up scar tissue. muscle tightness and binding can cause a great deal of pain. but wreathe massage could benefit or not depends on what’s wrong with you back, note that if you are in Washington or Florida you insurance may cover massage.
Good points and questions Student03.
redrose77, I just wanted to add that, with your doctor's approval, you might check out your local massage school for massage as they may offer a supervised student clinic at a lower price. In addition to doctor's referral, you might want to talk with your pharmacist to make sure that none of the meds you are taking could be interacting negatively and exacerbating your symptoms. Hoping you find additional relief.
