Fibromyalgia

Chinese Medicine treats all the associated signs and symptoms of the fibromyalgia syndrome very effectively and without side effects. Moreover, Chinese medicine addresses each patient’s symptoms individually and treats the underlying root causes of fibromyalgia, rather than simply masking the symptoms as do many of the existing Western medical approaches.

One of the most recent investigations into the effectiveness of acupuncture for fibromyalgia was presented at the 11th World Congress on Pain in Sydney, Australia, in August of 2005. The trial, conducted by researchers at the Mayo Clinic, found that acupuncture provided significant improvements in a variety of symptoms associated with fibromyalgia, with the effects of care often lasting several months.

According to Dr. David Martin, the study’s lead investigator, “There’s not a cure available, so patients are often left somewhat frustrated by continuing pain and fatigue. Acupuncture is one of the few things shown to be effective for these symptoms.”

The following video by Dr. Bruce Stafford (CMD) is a good description of the treatment process:
