Massage Desensitization for Amplified Musculoskeletal Pain Syndrome
Lotion massage can be completed at any time of the day; however, we want you to try and incorporate this into your daily routine. For example, after taking a shower or before you go to bed at night.
Here's how you complete this activity. Apply the lotion to the area on your body that are experiencing Allodynia. With firm pressure, rub along the specified area for three to five minutes. This is the correct way. This is the incorrect technique.
Great job! You've completed one of the four to five recommended desensitization techniques per day. Try another one! Remember, this can take some time to work so don't give up.
