Acupuncture for Fibromyalgia

Using Acupuncture for Fibromyalgia

Acupuncture for fibromyalgia is extremely effective. Rarely do I see it on its own, but rather in conjunction with other symptoms, most commonly fatigue.  In my practice I regularly treat mild fibromyalgia resulting in decreased quality and enjoyment of life, to severe fibromyalgia resulting in disability and high levels of pain meds. Either way, acupuncture for fibromyalgia helps.

Our definition of pain in TCM is simply “blocked Qi”, meaning, something has caused there to be poor, or blocked flow of the energy flowing through our channels and muscles. The key is to get to the root of why each person’s Qi is blocked: is it stress? Perhaps weak digestion leaving inadequate nutrients to get to the tissues? For each person, there will be a different underlying cause, but finding and resolving it is the key to improving not just the muscle pain, but all other symptoms that are also connected to the underlying cause.
