Did you know that massage can help reduce the symptoms of MS?

  • Fatigue/insomnia
  • Dizziness, pain, pins and needles in limbs
  • Anxiety and depression. 

And the symptoms can vary from patient to patient and from day to day. 

What not to do in a massage: 

  • Deep tissue massage 
  • Too much stretching 
  • Twisting techniques
  • Too much heat in the room
  • Do not treat within 72 hours of the last steroid injection or intravenous treatment.

In the US, in a survey with over 3000 respondants who had MS, nearly 25% sought massage to help with their symptoms. So if you know anyone who has MS, massage is well worth considering.
