No matter how much sleep you get or how healthy your lifestyle, the pain from Fibromyalgia can be unbearable.
Are there mornings you wake up in so much pain that you can hardly move, and the only relief you can find is in strong pain killers prescribed by your doctor?
The pain may subside for a few hours, but the side effects are ever present never allowing you to lead a normal life.
Neurofeedback has been successful in alleviating such symptoms for many fibromyalgia sufferers. It targets the pain at the source, the brain.
Neurofeedback, unlike pain killers that must be taken for long periods of time –perhaps a lifetime, is completed in 30 – 40 sessions.

When you cut your finger, the injury turns on pain sensors in that area. Usually, the signal stops when the cause of the pain is resolved — your finger heals. But with chronic pain, the signals keep firing even after you’ve healed. Neurofeedback can help areas of the brain involved in pain processing, pain perception, and/or pain memory. This allows the reduction or even elimination of pain.
