WARREN, NJ – Massage therapy promotes positive short-term and long-term benefits to individuals with multiple sclerosis (MS), according to Deanna Cimino of Watchung, New Jersey, who was diagnosed in 2012 with the chronic disease that attacks the central nervous system.
Since 2013, Cimino has seen the same seasoned therapist at Elements Massage of Warren as an alternative to physical therapy and has experienced dramatic results including relief of pain and muscle spasms related to the disease.  Cimino began first having problems with MS in 1998 until it became progressively worse and also suffers from fibromyalgia.  
 
“Massage therapy significantly reduced the pain and anxiety of this terrible disease that I have been battling for over a decade,” said Cimino.  “In addition, it has helped me to relax, improve my sleep and blood circulation.  I not only feel relief right after a massage but over time I have felt my MS is more manageable with regular treatments.  My therapist Natasha at Elements Massage literally “saved me” in helping me cope and sustain a much more normal lifestyle.”
 

“We are happy to help customers such as Deanna who suffer with MS with our massage treatments,” said Elements Massage Owner Ferry Firmansjah.  “With all our customers, we customize-design a therapy program.  In Deanna’s case, we found Swedish massage was helpful in relieving her symptoms of MS but each client’s situation is unique and different techniques or therapists may be needed.”
 
Doctors believe that massage strokes and friction promote muscle and connective tissue fibers to relax and stimulate blood flow.  The effect of this on MS patients can cause profound pain suppression and a greater ease of muscle movement. Although not a substitute for physical therapy, massage therapy has helped relieve muscle spasms, improve blood circulation, alleviate pain and reduce mental anxiety in MS sufferers.
 
With several seasoned therapists on staff, Elements Massage of Warren is offering individuals with MS a 50 percent discount off the regular walk-in rate for massage services during the month of March and April.  In addition, Elements is giving away two free massages every week to clients, who suffer with this chronic disease during these months.
 
Last year, Elements Massage of Warren raised $995 for the National MS Society’s New Jersey Chapter and participated in the MS Walk in Clark, New Jersey.
