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.
I’ll link to the original discussion about superficial and deep gout massage therapy:
If your browser does not show that discussion, you can see the explanation of superficial and deep massage at https://plus.google.com/u/0/+Epainassist/posts/QVc8WuqmEgN. These distinctions are important. 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 story here so that other gout sufferers can benefit.
