Fibromyalgia pain relief

When I first started in Chinese medicine in the early 1990’s fibromyalgia was a rare diagnosis, only really as Western medicine was still trying to work out what was causing it. Acupuncture can be an effective treatment for this condition, however it is by no means an instant fix as the needling prompts the body to heal itself and this can often take time.

A 2012 study showed that acupuncture significantly improved pain and symptoms of fibromyalgia. Also finding that acupuncture did not have any side effect and was tolerable.http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3518980/

In addition to medical treatment, there are also regular activities that help symptoms. Gentle exercise and walking daily helps. For something a little more focused try adding Tai Chi (or even Wing Chun) to your daily routine as this can help a lot. See the latest research here:
