Fibromyalgia (Cfs) Connections

Below you will find various relationships to the concept of and potential clinical approaches for fibromyalgia (cfs). It is critical to appreciate that in Chinese Medicine (and most related systems), treatment for "fibromyalgia (cfs)" is rarely designed with the resulting "fibromyalgia (cfs)" exclusively in mind.

For non-practitioners, we recommend reading treating the "cause" and not the "symptoms" for more on the overall approach and the importance of the TCM diagnostic system in formulating treatment approaches.

A potential range of underlying factors and approaches for fibromyalgia (cfs) are described in our acupuncture protocol page - "acupuncture for chronic fatigue/fibromyalgia - treatment protocols " .

Some acupuncture points are considered "empirically" related to a specific condition or diagnostic pattern. While this would rarely, if ever, dictate the entire composition of a treatment, the following points should be considered, possibly even more so within the context of acupressure:
