Studies have shown that acupuncture is effective for fibromyalgia (Cochrane Review). When compared to standard care alone (exercise and medication), patients who received standard care plus acupuncture rated their pain 30 points lower on a scale of 0-100. Research shows improvement in many areas after receiving acupuncture: pain, sleep, fatigue, stiffness, global wellbeing, and physical functioning.
When I work with people living with fibromyalgia, I treat the whole person, not just symptoms. I use a variety of modalities and tools to help people feel better. I am skilled in cupping, gua sha, moxibustion, polarity tools, and bodywork. These combined with acupuncture can be very beneficial for people living with fibromyalgia.
One fibromyalgia patient said, “I felt so much better after my first treatment with Lauri. I felt very relaxed and had much less pain.”
