My boyfriend recently qualified as a massage therapist. He's been doing a combination of Swedish and Hot Stone massage on me once a week for the last 4 weeks and the effects are amazing! My muscles pain has receded to all dull ache, I have more mobility and my sleep has also improved. Certainly the night of the massage I go into a deeper sleep than I've had in years. I've tried acupuncture, physio, hydrotherapy, heat therapy and just about everything else for my fibro but this is the only natural therapy that's had any impact at all. Has anyone else tried massage and found it's helped?

Oh you lucky thing
It's such a shame the NHS don't take massage as seriously as things like physio. In the USA it's treated in exactly the same way and health insurers will pay for it (but at least we don't have to pay for health insurance - what a nightmare that would be). Thank you for the good wishes, I'm hoping the wedding falls on a good day - my dress won't look quite the same with me crawling down the aisle x
