Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS) affects an estimated 2 percent of the population. Research shows that as many as 90 percent of people with fibromyalgia have turned to complimentary and alternative medicine to manage their symptoms. Acupuncture, in particular, has become a popular treatment choice and has shown to be an effective treatment for FMS.
Acupuncture is the oldest continually practiced form of medicine in the world, with written records dating back almost 2500 years. It is perhaps the most respected complementary health care system worldwide and has been accepted and promoted by the World Health Organization to treat many illnesses and disorders.
The origins of acupuncture date back to the time when history was not even recorded. The beliefs and main themes of acupuncture can be traced back to the Taoist customs that were practiced around 8000 years ago. The Chinese natives of that time practiced meditation and observed the course of energy inside and outside the body.
