Mud Therapy Alleviates Fibromyalgia Pain
In the May, 2008 issue of the Bastyr Center For Natural Health there is an interesting article on using an ancient treatment for Fibromyalgia. Hot mud pack therapy, is proving effective for alleviating the pain associated with Fibromyalgia. In a study published in Rheumatology International, study participants who had Fibromyalgia were treated with heated mud packs followed by hot baths. The treatment proved effective for improving participants’ pain, fatigue, general health and physical functioning, whereas the untreated group experienced no improvement.
Hot mud?! In January 1985 (I still remember it well), I stopped in San Francisco for the weekend as I was flying from my business on Maui to my home in Minnetonka, Minnesota, to see a close friend. He wanted to show me around and I explained that I was tired, exhausted and really just wanted to do nothing. he said he had the perfect solution and drove me to Calistoga to the hot mud baths. The experience began with being covered in hot mud in a big tub. After about 30 minutes, we got out of the tubs and then showered. Next we sat in the jacuzzi, then on to a hot towel wrap which was finished off with a full body massage. I was so relaxed I could hardly walk out the door. We went to an outdoor cafe and drank tea for about an hour staring off into the countryside. It was in incredible experience that I look forward to repeating.
I have an excellent radio show entitled Fibro What? with Melissa Roth, PhD (Show #14, May 13, 2008, also see my Fibro What? post), where we discuss the benefits of hypnotherapy with Fibromyalgia. Using the Light Switch Self Hypnosis technique is an easy way for you to use hypnotherapy to manage Fibromyalgia and other health issues. Watch Light Switch Self Hypnosis and find out how easy self hypnosis is. You can also watch these videos on Power Minutes: Power Minutes, How To Use Power Minutes, Written Suggestions and Orange Blossom. Fibromyalgia clients tell me that hypnosis is powerfully effective in reducing and eliminating Fibromyalgia pain. I use the Fibro What? protocol developed by Melissa Roth, PhD with Fibromyalgia clients.
