    Does anyone here with FM receive regular massage? What modality do you like, what works best? Do you experience more pain as a result from massage?

    -I am a massage student and have fibro myself and am having a hard time receiving massage that doesnt hurt...

    I get Shiatsu about every 3 weeks. She was more gentle at first and always respects what I can handle but now she goes deeper and my muscles are responding. much less hard and tight. It really feels good now.

    Some people with FM can't handle massage or can only have it sometimes. Maybe you are in that category. Wait for a while and try again.

    I used to get them weekly, in order to keep working.

    Then I fell and blew my spine.

    Mine with myofascial and deep massage and it was wonderful

    I get occipital release and trigger point release and another one but of course I can't remember what it's called.
