Here is the correct link for the email I sent out a few weeks ago. Some people were not able to access the video – so here is one I believe everyone can access.

New research published in Clinical Rheumatologyconcludes that acupuncture is effective for the treatment of fibromyalgia (FMS). Fibromyalgia is a medical condition involving pain, increased sensitivity to stimuli and fatigue.
Other symptoms often include sleep disturbances, joint stiffness, digestive complaints, numbness, tingling, headaches, anxiety and impaired cognition. The overall presentation of fibromyalgia is that of body-wide pain and tenderness. In this new study, researchers find that acupuncture provides “beneficial effects” for the treatment of fibromyalgia.
Other studies support the same conclusions as those reached in this recent modern research.
In a study from the University of Maryland School of Medicine (Baltimore), researchers conclude that “real acupuncture is more effective than sham acupuncture for improving symptoms of patients with FMS.” In another study published by the Department of Anesthesiology at the Mayo Clinic College of Medicine in Rochester (Minnesota), researchers conclude, “We found that acupuncture significantly improved symptoms of fibromyalgia. Symptomatic improvement was not restricted to pain relief and was most significant for fatigue and anxiety.”
