Lupus Awareness Month: Massage Benefits for Lupus Patients

May is Lupus Awareness Month—making it the perfect time to spread the word how massage therapy can offer great pain relief to those who suffer from lupus!

What is Lupus?

Lupus is a chronic autoimmune disease, which means the body attacks itself as if it were a foreign body—like a virus—that poses a health threat. Lupus can damage any part of the body, be it skin, joints, and/or organs. According to the Lupus Foundation of America, symptoms of lupus can include:

  • Extreme fatigue
  • Headaches
  • Painful or swollen joints
  • Fever
  • Anemia
  • Swelling in feet, legs, hands, and/or around eyes
  • Pain in chest on deep breathing
  • Butterfly-shaped rash across cheeks and nose
  • Sensitivity to sun or light
  • Hair loss
  • Abnormal blood clotting
  • Fingers turning white and/or blue when cold
  • Mouth or nose ulcers

Not all Lupus patients show the same symptoms. It is known as "the great imitator" or "copycat disease" because its symptoms are often like those of rheumatoid arthritis, blood disorders, fibromyalgia, diabetes, thyroid problems, Lyme disease, and a number of heart, lung, muscle, and bone diseases.

Lupus Pain Relief With Massage

Massage therapy reduces stress, increases energy and alertness, and improves circulation. This makes it a great way for those who suffer from lupus to take back control of the way they feel every day. The S.L.E. Lupus Foundation states that massage:

  • Increases pain-relieving endorphins
  • Reduces inflammation and soreness
  • Alleviates muscle tension
  • Decreases stress

Massage will enable you to move more comfortably and experience less of the exhaustion and physical pain of lupus, therefore increasing your mobility and activity level. Reducing stress is also important for lupus sufferers. Stress can have many psychological and physical side effects, and can trigger lupus flares.

Always be sure to consult your physician prior to trying any kind of massage. If your doctor does recommend massage chair therapy, consider an Infinity Massage Chair! With one of our luxury massage chairs, you can feel better in your everyday life by relieving your lupus symptoms. Our high-quality massage chairs include various massage techniques and features, so you can find the one that best suits your needs.

Please Note: The S.L.E. Lupus Foundation recommends that if you are experiencing a lupus flare up with possible fever, open lesions, a rash, or other signs or symptoms, you should postpone your massage and first consult a medical professional. Deep tissue massage can aggravate lupus. Additionally, the Lupus Foundation of America states that massage may not be appropriate for some people who have a form of the condition called cutaneous lupus, which affects the skin.

  • The doctors said Herpes virus do not have medical cure because the virus is capable of hiding within the human cells, it remains protected from your immune system. Herpes isn’t a special virus – your immune system has the tools to fight it back. But because it is able to lay dormant in protected cells, your immune system is unable to remove it from your body,But with strong reactive herbal medication is capable of getting rid of the virus gradually and totally from your body without damaging any of your cells,natural herbs kills the virus totally not just reducing the out break.
