Fibromyalgia syndrome is a chronic disorder commonly characterized by widespread musculoskeletal pain, fatigue, and localized tenderness. It is a condition where there are no measurable findings on x-rays or lab tests and is simply diagnosed by a patient’s symptoms and physical examination. Research suggests it’s a “malfunction” of pain signals in the body. According to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) in 2005, fibromyalgia is estimated to have affected approximately 5 million Americans.
Hypnotherapy for fibromyalgia and other musculoskeletal disorders is quickly becoming one of the most impressive interventions for symptom relief:
A significant reduction of pain and dysphoria was found following Hypnosis in a study of 19 patients with a variety of musculoskeletal disorders.

As many alternative approaches are explored for sufferers of fibromyalgia, the most targeted areas of improvement are pain and stress. Hypnotherapy has proven time and time again to be an effective method of pain-management and stress-reduction.
