"Hi Kay,   Thank you for repling.  According to her doctor, the masses behind her knees are from her FMS.  She likes it super super deep and she states that is the only thing that gives her relief. "

Fibromyalgia and Chronic Myofascial Pain Syndrome

Hi!  I have a client that has FMS and CMP.  She has geloid masses on the back of her knees that cause her severe pain and when she comes in for a massage she wants very deep tissue behind her knees (along with her neck and hips) - Has anyone had any experience with both of these conditions? Would love to hear from you.  Thanks, Kerry

Purchasing Hot Stones

I am looking into purchasing hot stones and I have heard that Basalt were the best ones to buy, but then I heard that seastones were better, because they hold the heat longer. I also heard that you can go to the beaches in New England to get them. Anyone have any suggestions, ideas, best place to buy stones, what they like and why? Has anyone seen the difference between basalt and seastones? Thanks for any info you can share.
