This trial has been organised independently by Melanie at Ryding2Health Ltd Invercargill. We were interested to find out whether there was evidence that MLD could help manage symptoms for sufferers of fibromyalgia because we see so many people with this diagnosis in our massage clinic (usually to receive deep tissue massage). We had read research online that suggested that it could be the best form of massage to treat fibromyalgia but we had no evidence of this on a personal level.
All the participants of the trial have had a formal diagnosis. They have all agreed to a minimum 4 weeks of treatment – at least one 60 min treatment per week. All participants are not currently actively participating in any other complimentary therapies to treat their fibromyalgia and have agreed to let us share their results on social media and for marketing purposes, if the results prove to be positive.
None of the participants have previously tried MLD as a form of treatment for their fibromyalgia. Read More
