I have severe ME , bedbound mainly. A friend knows someone who has recently trained in masage therapy who would be willing to come to the house. But I'm a bit worried it would make me worse and wonder if there is any advice I could give her, other than just saying I'm very unwell!. A newly qualified person might not be suitable for me but it would be free and she is apparently very quiet which is essential. Has anyone had massage therapy? has it helped? hindered? and what kind would you recommend?. Many thanks in advance for any replies. I don't use the pc very often but would like advice before I accept the offer of massage. I have tried Bowen which didn't help.
