A  Acupuncture & Chinese Herbal Medicine Clinic

TCM Solution - Fibromyalgia

Natural Therapies - Acupuncture, Acupressure,  Traditional Chinese Medicine

Fibromyalgia (FM or FMS) is characterised by chronic widespread pain. Fibromyalgia symptoms are not
restricted to pain. Other symptoms include debilitating fatigue, sleep diturbance and joint stiffness. In western
medicine, its exact cause is unknown. However, according to the theories of Chinese medicine, fibromyalgia
follows patterns of imbalance associated with Qi (vital energy), organs and energetic qualities of the body
leading to pain syndromes.

Fibromyalgia responds extremely well to Chinese medicine because Chinese medical therapies treat
energetic imbalances in the body. In our clinic, we found following patterns are quite common:
  • Liver Qi Constraints
  • Cold, Damp toxin
  • Or/and Wind toxin
  • Qi Deficiency

We address the symptoms of fibromyalgia and its underlying causes. Our strategy is to

  • Resolve the Constraints and expel the Wind, Cold and Damp toxin
  • Treat any underlying factors contributing to the development of Constraints
  • Provide symptomatic relief by stopping pain

Together, acupuncture, herbal remedies provide a helpful treatment option for patients diagnosed with
fibromyalgia.

The power of Chinese medicine is in a personalized treatment. Therefore A comprehensive consultation is a
must in order to find what your individual under pattern condition is and then decide what acu-points to select
and what herbs to mix up to make right customized acupuncture treatment and herbal remedy.
