    in stopping all "treatments", is self massage and rolling a ball under my foot something I should stop? My feet hurt and this is my self massage modality.

    Well stop thinking the ball rolling will help your tms you can think of as a massage self care sort of speak but nothing more....better yet to stop it all together

    Yup, eventually you want to stop it completely. Assuming what you have is TMS you are perfectly healthy and don't need any massage. Physical treatments can drag us back to thinking physically, which is exactly the wrong way to go.

    It sounds like the massage may be an opportunity to slow down and take care of yourself, much like the ideas in days 7, 14, 21, etc. of the Structured Educational Program. If that's true, perhaps you can find another ritual to replace the massage.

    Frankly speaking, my mom has so many how many different devices for self-massage that she will soon be able to open her own massage parlor.
