Fibromyalgia

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 of fibromyalgia include widespread pain, fatigue and cognitive difficulties.

FibroFatigue Program

 

According to Chinese medicine, acupuncture works by restoring balance throughout the body.  It also increases the amount of energy in your body, thus restoring overall health.  It is believed that acupuncture may actually block pain impulses from reaching the brain and increase the level of endorphins in the body, thereby minimizing pain.  In particular, acupuncture seems to increase neurotransmitters and gasotransmitters, which are chemicals that help to reduce pain symptoms and distribute oxygen throughout the body.

Our Approach

At Three Moons Acupuncture, we approach fibromyalgia the same way we do all health issues…holistically and focusing on the root of the problem, not just covering up the symptoms.  Fibromyalgia frequently stems from an underlying systemic problem, meaning that there are other problems in the body that are actually causing issues.  It is our goal to identify the underlying cause and treat everything.

Some of the possible benefits of our fibromyalgia program include overall health improvements such as better sleep, less stress, decreased pain and increased blood circulation.  And Three Moons Acupuncture is leading the way in Southeastern Wisconsin.  Our program incorporates acupuncture, acupressure, herbs, breathing qigong, healing soaks, tai chi, exercises, nutritional guidance and other modalities to help our fibromyalgia patients regain their lives.

Our FibroFatigue Program is a progressive program that is tailored to the needs of the patient.  This multi-level program begins with breath qigong exercises.  The breathing techniques allow the gasotransmitters in the body to perform their function more effectively.  Gasotransmitters assist in the exchange of oxygen and nitric oxide at the cellular level, which is where disease begins.  The symptoms that are felt are actually the end result of any disease that begins at the cellular level.  This is why breathing techniques are the basis of this program.

The goal with our FibroFatigue Program is to allow the patient to become self-sufficient, using fewer medications and being able to perform self-care at home.  Initially, we will require that the patient come in for visits / treatments once a week.  As time and healing progress, the office visits will become less frequent.
