    What is Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS)?

    Fibromyalgia Syndrome is a complex and chronic disorder characterised by widespread musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, sleep disturbances, and tender points. It can greatly affect your quality of life, making everyday activities challenging and diminishing your overall well-being.

    How Can Acupuncture Help?

    Acupuncture is an ancient practice rooted in Traditional Chinese Medicine that focuses on restoring the balance of energy, or “qi,” within the body. By inserting thin, sterile needles into specific points along the body’s meridian pathways, acupuncture stimulates the body’s natural healing mechanisms and promotes a sense of well-being. Many individuals with FMS have reported significant improvements in pain levels, sleep quality, and overall functionality through acupuncture treatments.
