    The interest in massage for gout continues to grow.

    I’ve summarized the latest information in Massage for Gout Relief. However, questions continue to roll in. Only today, I was asked: “Can I manually massage out gout crystals in my toes?”

    Now, that to me sounds very dangerous. Inflamed tissue should not be massaged, and I urge you to carefully read the advice I summarized on the page above.

    Our original discussion about superficial and deep gout massage therapy:

    Massage Therapy for Gout

    Massage therapy is very helpful in the management of gout by promoting blood circulation to the affected area and thereby reducing inflammation and swelling. As gout is caused due to poor diet and lifestyle hence the massage therapy will only be of benefit when it is used along with diet and lifestyle modifications.

    Importantly, you should understand the difference between superficial and deep massage. These distinctions are important when massaging gout sufferers. If your massage therapist cannot explain the different types of massage, and how they affect your gout, then you should seek a new therapist.

    Which brings me to a question of my own: Do you know a good gout massage therapist? Please share your gout massage story here so that other gout sufferers can benefit.
