In our opinion everyone with fibromyalgia should try acupuncture therapy. In our experience, it consistently helps with the associated pain and sleep difficulty. In fact, the “tender points” common in fibro are actually acupuncture points! When it helps, you should expect fast relief from pain, usually in 2-3 sessions and a course of 4-8 often reinforces the pain relief and improved sleep. Occasional tune-up therapy sessions after that.
