Relaxation therapy has been proven to be effective in reducing the symptoms of fibromyalgia. As a matter of fact, it can help to also reduce anxiety and depression, which a lot of fibromyalgia patients are also are suffering from. So here are some relaxation techniques that can help alleviate your fibromyalgia symptoms.
Breathing exercises can help eliminate stress and provide your body with enough oxygen. If you are not getting sufficient oxygen, your body won’t be able to function efficiently and this can further aggravate the pain caused by fibromyalgia. Deep breathing relaxation is about focusing on exhaling and inhaling, which you can do by either standing or sitting.
Someone demonstrating Tens machined said I was the tense -ist person he had met. I sleep badly & only manage 2 hrs at a time before paying a visit to the bathroom. I rarely relax but am always tired. Reiiki and reflexology once gave me a night’s sleep but have not had one since. I ate at night a lot, but now have lost 3 stones and no longer have pastry, chocolate spread etc. I drop off during TV programmes though!
