I strongly doubt fibroid massage can cure fibroids, but it’s been my personal experience that massaging my fibroids has provided relief and momentarily softened up the tumors to where they’ve made my stomach protrude less for a minute.
Massaging your fibroids away
I was already trying fibroid massage before I discovered massage is an actual therapy being used as a possible aide in the treatment of fibroids. You can get professional treatment from people trained in the art, but if you’re like me and can’t afford the expense, you can always do the massages yourself.
What I do is basically just use my fingers to gently press and massage my fibroids. The first time I tried it I was lying on my back on the floor after exercising and I noticed that I didn’t have to rise up in order to see over my stomach; but it wasn’t that the fibroids had gone away. The massaging seemed to make them disappear momentarily.
My fibroids sometimes get pretty high up in my chest right under my rib cage, making it difficult to sit. At other times it feels like I’m carry around a stomach full of hard grapefruit sized rocks. Massaging the fibroids relieves some of that pressure and eases the strain on my body from having to try to sit while something feels like it’s lodged under my ribs. It also leaves my stomach a little flatter for a short time, but the effects have never been permanent or terribly long lasting..
Perhaps a consistent ritual of massaging fibroids in conjunction with whatever other remedies you try could result in more long-term control over the impact fibroids have on changing the size and shape of your abdomen.
