A new mind-body approach for a total healing of fibromyalgia: a case report.

Author information



Fibromyalgia is a severe, chronic and widespread pain syndrome with no definite treatment protocol. Several medications are currently in use to treat this condition. Various pharmacological treatments, as well as alternative mind-body therapies, have been directed towards reducing fatigue and pain, but these treatments have only resulted in a partial relief of symptoms with no long-term or permanent effects. This study shows the results obtained from four female patients suffering from fibromyalgia after undergoing a mind-body treatment in which psychosocial genomic postulates as well as ideodynamic hand movements were the main tools employed in their healing. It is suggested that a mind-body oriented treatment could generate stable and permanent changes that enable patients to experience a total recovery from fibromyalgia.
