Fibromyalgia is a painful and debilitating condition that impacts and disrupts the lives of many people. The symptoms of this condition include: varying degrees of pain, extreme tiredness and fatigue, muscle stiffness and difficulty sleeping. While unfortunately, there is currently no known cure for the condition, there are a number of measures that can be taken to help ease these symptoms and make the condition much easier to live with. Our expert acupuncturist Ian Felix has many years of experience in the treatment of Fibromyalgia, and is dedicated to helping people overcome the debilitating effects of this condition.
While the acupuncture itself is effective, Fibromyalgia treatment is also aided by positive lifestyle changes. Ian will provide specialized nutritional advice to help make the body better able to tolerate the pain and maximize energy. This will make coping with the condition at its worst much more doable, and most importantly will minimize the conditions ability to interrupt your daily life.
Graded Exercise Therapy is another highly useful treatment, which is also pivotal in forming a complete treatment. When carried out correctly, it creates an anabolic effect and helps release a Fibromyalgia T-Positive hormonal response from your body, making you more tolerant to the stresses and strains of the condition. The key to effective Fibromyalgia treatments is to find the perfect mix of different treatments to best alleviate the specific symptoms, unique to each person.
The unique aspect of Ian’s method of treatment is the use of acupuncture, which has been shown to be effective in alleviating the pain and other adverse symptoms brought about by the condition. By pinpointing various body points and auricular points to stimulate the release of endorphins, your body will provide you with its own natural pain relief which helps make the condition a great deal more manageable.
Fibromyalgia effects different people in different ways, and Ian’s extensive experience in acupuncture treatment allows him to find the appropriate level of pain relief for each client, helping them overcome the symptoms and regain control of their daily lives.
