Massage therapist to discuss 'Overcoming Fibromyalgia'

Tammy R. Mawhinney, a Lewiston-based licensed massage therapist specializing in neuromuscular therapy and relief of chronic pain, will discuss Overcoming Fibromyalgia at 6 p.m. Feb. 24 in Room 204 of Carnegie Science. The public is invited to attend free of charge.

Fibromyalgia syndrome (also called “FMS” or “FM”) is a complex, chronic condition that causes widespread pain and profound fatigue as well as a variety of other symptoms. Its effects are felt primarily in muscles, tendons and ligaments throughout the body. Unlike arthritis, however, no inflammation accompanies fibromyalgia, and the joints of the body are not directly affected.
