The Houston Forward Times recently featured an article by Licensed Massage Therapist, Valecia Weeks, in which she outlines the benefits of massage therapy for those suffering from diabetes, both Type 1 and Type 2.
Some of the benefits include:
- Relaxation Massage can help combat the strain put on the body by the disease.
- Improved Circulation This is important for diabetics who often have impaired circulation particularly affecting the hands and feet.
- Myofacial Massage Effects These techniques facilitate greater mobility in the body. This can counteract the stiffness and reduced range of motion experienced by many living with diabetes.

As with any health issues whether it be an injury, illness, impairment, disability, or increased risk factor, it is important for diabetics to share information about their condition with their massage therapist before receiving treatment. Let your massage therapist know about your disease, how you are feeling on that particular day, and about anything specific that may be bothering you. This can help the therapist provide the best care for you.
