Research goes further with looking at beneficial massage techniques For example, techniques that start from smooth and gentle massage, to using techniques such as myofascial, trigger point, acupressure and deep tissue.

Article for eCAM, when looking at massage therapy claims that technique using -myofascial release helps to reduce sensitivity to pain at tender points in patients with fibromyalgia, “and so improving their pain perception. Release of fascial restrictions in these patients also reduces anxiety levels and improves sleep quality, physical function, and physical role. Massage-myofascial program can be considered as an alternative and complementary therapy that can achieve transient improvements in the symptoms of these patients”.
