Fibromyalgia & How Sports Massage Can Help

Do you suffer with Fibromyalgia? Are you based in Doncaster, Rotherham, Sheffield or the surrounding South Yorkshire area?

Your local Sports Massage Clinic is here to help you! At Body Advance, I’ve made it my mission to help those with chronic pain conditions. Whilst there is often no cure, I want to help people live normal, full lives!

Fibromyalgia associated pain can be carefully and systematically managed through a range of techniques.

Deep Oscillation Therapy creates biologically effective oscillations in the treated tissue & is known to have a gentle effect on tissue components. Treatment with Deep Oscillation Therapy promotes mobilisation and alleviates muscle stiffness. But, one of the key characteristics of this therapy is its pain-relieving qualities, often allowing the patient to reduce oral pain-relief.

Manual Lymphatic Drainage, or MLD, is my speciality! It is a gentle, soothing, rhythmic hands- on technique. It’s known to provide pain relief & encourages healing between connective tissues. I work by applying circular movements to the skin in direction of the lymph-flow & this helps activate the bodies lymphatic system, removing toxins & calming the nervous system. In time, MLD can work to decrease discomfort caused by Fibromyalgia.

Finally, Myofascial Release is a technique where I use precise hand placements to find pain trigger points, and work to release & stretch your body tissue to a new range. This helps to alter any restricted ranges of movement you’ve been experiencing & the restorative effects can be quite astounding. The key is to find your pain trigger point, and not just an area of tenderness. By doing this I’m easing the discomfort at its source. Fibromyalgia is a life-long condition. And, whilst slower & restful days are encouraged, it doesn’t have to be a total lifestyle limiter. I want to work with more people throughout Doncaster and South Yorkshire to get on top of their chronic pain conditions.
