The main symptom leading to a diagnosis of fibromyalgia is widespread pain. While all-over pain is common, the pain can also be more localised, for example in the hands and arms. It can vary in location of the body and may be occasional or constant.

Treatment types

A mixture of phototherapy, ultrasound and magnetotherapy complemented by TENS, if desired.

Method of action


Provides an analgesic effect.

Phototherapy — red light

Mitochondria within the skin cells are able to absorb red light particles. This can help the cells produce more adenosine triphosphate (the energy source of all cells).

Red light therapy helps to:

  • Reduce inflammation in the cells, both at the area of use and throughout the system.
  • Reduce pain in the nervous system.


Magnetotherapy offers an anti-inflammatory and anti-swelling effect on top of its ability to reduce pain and improve blood circulation.


The electrical impulses reduce the pain signals going to the spinal cord and brain by temporarily ‘switching off’ the nerve endings of the affected area — thus, helping to relieve pain and relax the muscles. These impulses also stimulate the production of endorphins, which are the body’s natural painkillers.
