How hypnosis can help Fibromyalgia

Fibromyalgia (FMS) is a frustrating and little-understood illness. It’s called an illness rather than a disease, because there is no specific diagnostic test that confirms or denies its existence. It’s a collection of confusing symptoms which come and go and vary in intensity. Its chief characteristic is widespread pain in the muscles, ligaments and tendons, as well as stiffness, fatigue and non-restorative sleep. While it is not life-threatening, it can be as debilitating as rheumatoid arthritis. It is an illness which frustrates physicians as much as it does the people who endure it.

FMS is a collection of symptoms without a known cause. It affects 5-10% of the population, eight times more women are affected than men, and it strikes all ages. The classical diagnosis for FMS is experiencing pain in all four quadrants of your body that lasts longer than three months, as well as tenderness in at least 11 out of 18 pressure points.

Traditional treatments aim at improving the quality of sleep and reducing pain. Recent research confirms that a multi-disciplinary approach to treating FMS provides the greatest relief from symptoms and the best prognosis. This approach includes improving the quality of sleep, proper nutrition, physical conditioning, deep relaxation and positive mental imagery. No one modality has proven effective more than 40% of the time. However, by combining therapies, the patient can frequently return to a healthier state and a more active lifestyle.

This program for FMS symptom alleviation is non-invasive and is designed to be used in conjunction with your physician’s treatment regime. It is a multi-session program which focuses on easing pain, boosting energy levels, restoring sleep without drugs, releasing anxiety and tension, improving concentration and alleviating other troublesome symptoms. Typical sessions include:

  • Trigger and Relaxation Response
  • Restorative Sleep
  • Pain Relief
  • Overcoming Anxiety and Depression
  • Boosting Energy Levels
  • Improved Concentration
  • Allergy Relief
  • Calming the Dysautonomic Nervous System
  • Increased Flexibility
