Treatment of Fibromyalgia

Alternative Medicine

Acupressure

If specific tender points are particularly painful, you can use acupressure to help calm them down. Simply find the spot with your fingertips and press, gradually increasing the pressure. The spot may initially feel sore, but within a few seconds, the pain should start to ease off, and you will feel the muscle relax. For hard-to-reach places on your back, you can lie down and roll your back on a tennis ball. 

The following acupressure points are particularly useful in fibromyalgia:

bulletGallbladder 20, 30, 31, and 34 are instrumental in strengthening and enhancing circulation to the muscles and tendons. 
bulletLiver 3 quiets the nervous system and relaxes muscle cramps and spasms. 
bulletPericardium 6 relaxes the chest and upper digestive tract, and helps relax the mind. 
bulletThe combination of Spleen 6 and Stomach 36 enhances the absorption and transport of nutrients.
