Alternative Treatments for Fibromyalgia Pain Relief

There’s no magic pill for fibromyalgia pain relief, and instead it requires a balanced approach consisting of medication, exercise, physical therapy, and these days, alternative treatments, such as laser therapy using the Handy Cure/HandyRx device for at home use. Alternative treatments are becoming a preferred option as these are commonly noninvasive and does not pose the risk of liver damage, unlike some medication. These have been reported to ease pain, fatigue, and other symptoms associated with fibromyalgia. Here, we’ll learn about them, and see how fibromyalgia pain relief can be best achieved.

Dietary Supplements

Many natural dietary supplements are on the rise as alternatives to chemicals commonly found in medicines which are said to pose toxicity levels and affect the liver when used consistently over time. Common dietary supplements in the healthcare market include: 5-HTP which is a building block for serotonin, a hormone that with increased levels, improves mood; SAMe, a derivative of amino acids that boosts serotonin and dopamine, aiding in mood and sleep; Magnesium, an element that with low levels may be linked to fibromyalgia; Melatonin, a hormone that regulates sleep, and when taken as a supplement, provides fibromyalgia pain relief; and St. John’s wort, an herb that is said to be used for fibromyalgia treatment, but still requires research.

A key point to remember when taking supplements for fibromyalgia pain relief is that some of these may have harmful interactions with your prescribed medication, or may cause additional health problems if you also have other medical conditions. It is best to speak with your doctor before mixing health supplements with prescription medicine.


This traditional Chinese medicine technique is said to rebalance the flow of energy in the body by improving blood flow and producing natural painkillers. Acupuncture involves inserting thin needles into the skin to stimulate areas in the body where blood flow can be improved to alleviate pain, in this case, for fibromyalgia. Some say it’s an effective, albeit temporary fibromyalgia pain relief treatment; in some cases it significantly reduced fatigue and anxiety associated with the condition, while in other studies, it was not an effective treatment method.


Massages are commonly used to reduce muscle tension and relieve pain radiating in the muscles and soft tissues. With kneading motions, circulation, range of motion, and production of the body’s natural painkillers can be improved. In some cases, it’s been known to help fibromyalgia sleep better, and improve their mood. With 20 minutes of moderately pressured massage, the flow of chemicals that cause pain can be reduced, allowing patients to sleep better; however, results of studies on massage therapy for fibromyalgia pain relief are still mixed, and few and far in between.

 Handy Cure Laser Therapy

The clinically tested and proven Handy Cure laser therapy device uses low level pulse laser radiation, infrared radiation, visible red light, and static magnetic fields to accelerate recovery of inflamed tissue and improve microcirculation, providing pain relief from fibromyalgia. These energies penetrate deep into the muscles and tissues to reduce swelling, allowing for better blood flow, and promoting faster healing and regeneration of damaged cells and tissues. As opposed to in- or out-patient laser therapy procedures, the Handy Cure is a handheld device designed for at home or on-the-go use, and is a noninvasive and nontoxic alternative to surgery and painkillers. Additionally, it can be combined with other treatment methods for fibromyalgia pain relief, such as using moist heating pads, taking warm showers, and all the other alternative treatment methods listed above.
