Fibromyalgia is a disorder that causes muscle pain and fatigue. People with fibromyalgia experience extremely tender points on the body. Tender points are specific places on the neck, shoulders, back, hips, arms, and legs. These points hurt when any type of pressure is put on them.
People with fibromyalgia may also have other symptoms, such as
- Trouble sleeping
- Morning stiffness
- Painful menstruation
- Tingling or numbness in hands and feet
- Problems with thinking and memory (sometimes called “fibro fog”)
The cause of fibromyalgia is unknown. Anyone can get it, but it is most common in middle-aged women. People with rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune diseases are particularly likely to develop fibromyalgia. While there are a few medications on the market that can help manage symptoms, there is no cure for fibromyalgia.
Always see your doctor first. If you are not receiving relief for Fibromyalgia after going to a physician and having tried the few conventional medications, maybe an alternative approach can help. Alternative methods can even permanently relieve the pain of Fibromyalgia.
The alternative approach to treating Fibromyalgia is using different energy techniques. Since a person with Fibromyalgia can experience excruciating pain with the least bit of pressure, there are methods of using combinations of several energy modalities (such as Reiki, Quantum Physics, and Energetic Touch) “off the body.” Using these “off the body” techniques has a unique way to gently nudge the damaged nerve fibers to smooth out any inflammation and then become able to send and receive correct nerve signals. Through light touch or “off the body” techniques, a stable rhythm of information is sent and received through the central nervous system. This can form an improvement in the nerve responses and a general sense of wellbeing. Most receive partial relief, and sometimes a client has left a session completely pain free.
