Fibromyalgia is a condition that is diagnosed when 11 of 18 tender points are found in specific locations on the body. Other symptoms associated with fibromyalgia include fatigue, jaw pain and tightness, tension headaches, memory and concentration problems, numbness and tingling in the hands and feed, and reduced ability to exercise.
Specialized acupuncture techniques such as trigger point acupuncture can be very helpful in releasing the tight and painful places associated with fibromyalgia. Acupuncture is also very helpful in decreasing stress and increasing deep relaxation both of which are extremely helpful in alleviating the many associated symptoms of this condition. Acupuncture can be used in conjunction with Chinese herbal medicine and lifestyle changes to help treat the underlying problems and in treating the disease more from the root.
