Deep Tissue Massage

  • By StillFlaring

    I’ve been receiving deep tissue massages for over 6 years, it would lessen the pain I deal with on a daily basis and I would at least sleep well the night of the massage. It works especially well for my neck pain, hands – and my feet! I think the foot massage is my favorite part!
    (I was finally diagnosed 2 years ago- with aggressive RA, Fibromyalgia and Sjogren’s syndrom. Lucky me – a trifecta! )
    Have any of you tried massage as a relaxant and stress reliever?
