Fibromyalgia

Acupuncture for patients with Fibromyalgia in Seattle

Fibromyalgia is an autoimmune disorder that affects the muscles and soft tissue. It is characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain with specific tender points or trigger points. It is usually accompanied by fatigue, sleep disturbance, memory and mood issues. Researchers believe that Fibromyalgia amplifies painful sensations by affecting the way the brain processes pain signals. Acupuncture, lifestyle changes and stress management can help alleviate the symptoms associated with Fibromyalgia. At Awakenings Acupuncture, we specialize in the holistic treatment of Fibromyalgia in Seattle.

How Can Acupuncture Help Fibromyalgia?

Acupuncture is an effective and safe technique that is thousands of years old. We use single use, hair-thin, sterile, disposable needles in specific points of the body to alleviate the symptoms of a variety of medical conditions, including Fibromyalgia. Most Fibromyalgia patients are highly sensitive and acupuncture is a gentle technique that is well tolerated.

Acupuncture and Traditional Chinese Medicine helps with:

• Alleviating muscle soreness, inflammation and pain
• Increasing circulation of blood and lymph
• Increasing energy, improving sleep and memory and balancing mood
• Relaxation

Additionally, acupuncture releases endorphins that reduce pain, therefore, it is an effective pain relief treatment especially for patients with a chronic condition like Fibromyalgia. Whether you have been suffering with Fibromyalgia symptoms for a long time or have just been diagnosed, our Fibromyalgia acupuncture service in Seattle can provide you with relief.
