Do you suffer from pain, stiffness, muscle aches, fatigue, poor sleep, gastrointestinal disorders, foggy headedness and depression? Are some days so unbearable that even medication doesn’t seem to help? You may be part of the 6 million Americans suffering from Fibromyalgia and/or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS).
The Western medical model seeks to place a name on these sets of conditions, but even experts have trouble telling the difference between the two. Traditional Chinese Medicine chooses to look outside the box and focus on the root cause of the symptoms rather than just the symptoms themselves. According to the theories of Traditional Chinese Medicine, an imbalance in the flow of Qi can create symptoms that reflect the western diagnosis of Fibromyalgia and Chronic Fatigue. Even the 18 specific points of tenderness used to diagnose Fibromyalgia directly correspond to the location of acupuncture points.

This plan uses not only Acupuncture, but also herbs and dietary/lifestyle advice in order to maintain the balance of Qi in your body.
