Fibromyalgia is a musculoskeletal pain and fatigue disorder that causes individuals to have
pain in muscles, ligaments, joints, and fibrous tissues in the body. In addition, fibromyalgia is
often very difficult to treat and a mixture of treatments might be needed to help with control
your symptoms.


Surveys suggest that 66% to 99% of patients with fibromyalgia are using at least one
complementary therapy such as acupuncture or massage because pharmacologic therapies
provide insufficient relief of symptoms and are not curative” (Clarke, 2004).

1) Spinal glial (white matter) cells

2) Targets central nervous system
