Fibromyalgia is a disorder characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain accompanied by fatigue, sleep, memory and mood issues. Researchers believe that fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way your brain processes pain signals.

Symptoms sometimes begin after a physical trauma, surgery, infection or significant psychological stress. In other cases, symptoms gradually accumulate over time with no single triggering event.

Women are much more likely to develop fibromyalgia than men. Many people who have fibromyalgia also have tension headaches, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, irritable bowel syndrome, anxiety and depression.

While there is no cure for fibromyalgia, a variety of medications can help control symptoms. Exercise, relaxation and stress-reduction measures also may help. (Source:

Treatment with Traditional Chinese Medicine

In traditional Chinese medicine, good health depends upon two things: an unobstructed flow of energy and a balance of vital energy. Any health issue can occur when the energy flow is blocked or the vital energy is out of balance. One analogy would be as a traffic jam of energy inside the body, which results in health problems such as fibromyalgia. We use Ping’s meridian massage and acupuncture together to get better results.

Ping’s meridian massage is pressure along the meridians to clear up the body’s traffic jam, make energy and blood flow like a river and re-balance the vital energy in the body. Acupuncture is hair-thin needles that are inserted into the skin at specific points along the meridians to re-direct and unblock stagnant energy. The massage reaches a much wider surface area and acupuncture focuses on deep and specific points, using both techniques together is a unique, holistic and alternative treatment, the effective results are much greater than just single one.

Our regular treatment procedure is first Ping’s Meridian Massage would be performed to improve circulation and relax the mind and body. Second, needles would be inserted into the specific acupuncture points.

With the above treatment, our fibromyalgia patients get good results. It helps by relieving widespread musculoskeletal pain. It also helps to relax the muscles, reduce stress, improve sleep, boost the energy level and is good for general health. Some patients stay pain free for awhile.

Taji, Yoga, Pilates or Yogilates can help with physical and mental overall well being.

Healthy diet may help detoxification, improve health condition and boost the body’s own healing power. Please check to make healthy drinks.
