Fibromyalgia sometimes called fibrositis is associated with wide spread pain, fatigue and stiffness. People with fibromyalgia are found to have multiple tender points on the body, some times as many as 10-11 points are present.
We understand the difficulties faced by the client with fibromyalgia not least the excruciating pain but also the possibility that the symptoms can be dismissed, which can cause added stress.
However there is now increasing evidence showing that fibromyalgia patients have a high number of neurotransmitters called substance P, which is found in the spinal fluid. These transmitters apparently allow pain messages to be sent to the brain even when there is no source of pain.
It was also found that seratonin, dopamine and norepinephrine were lower than normal, seratonin plays a part in the regulation of substance P which is why some of the symptoms found in fibromyalgia are very similar to those of depression.
Not only can hypnotherapy help the body increase the levels of seratonin and maintain the correct regulation of substance P, its also helps you deal with the possible stimulates which may have triggered the illness.
The three objectives you should expect from the treatment are:
- Reduced pain immediately
- Reduced pain long term
- Reduction in suffering from the symptoms
