i have found that "deep tissue" massage is not good for lupus suffers.
the reason behind this is that deep issue works on the layers of muscles, and these are inflamed.
this massage irritates an already inflamed muscle, making it more severely inflamed.
soft aromatherapy massages are good,
as these do not work as deep into the muscle layers.
this type of massage helps to align the muscles, without inflaming them.
the effectiveness of this soft tissue massage is a lot shorter,
but it is a very relaxing method. and relieves a lot of built up stress points.
When you're stressed, You eat Ice cream, Cake, Chocolate & Sweets. Why? Because stressed spelled backwards is DESSERTS.
