How Reflexology Helps Fibromyalgia

March 13, 2018

Fibromyalgia is characterized by chronic, widespread pain and tenderness in the body. It is difficult to diagnose because there are no diagnostic tests or x-rays that can detect it, and the symptoms of fibromyalgia mimic symptoms of other medical conditions. Research shows that incorporating reflexology into a treatment plan is an effective, non-invasive option for relieving the symptoms of fibromyalgia, such as:

  • All over pain and deep muscle aches

  • Trigger point pain

  • Fatigue and exhaustion

  • Sleep problems

  • Brain fog

  • Morning stiffness

  • Digestive problems

  • Headache/Migraines

As with any chronic pain condition, reflexology is also able to address the secondary complications that arise from the stress of being in pain.  Accessing the nervous system (which is connected to every organ, system, and gland in the body) through reflexology is a very relaxing experience, and is proven to reduce stress. It promotes a sense of well-being and good overall health.Therefore, it can help:

  • Difficulty sleeping

  • Irritability/anger

  • Depression

  • Anxiety

  • Perhaps guilt of not participating in social events, family functions, etc
