Fibromyalgia is a long-term condition characterized by chronic widespread pain and a heightened and painful response to pressure (allodynia). Other common symptoms include increased sensitivity to pain (hyperalgesia), fatigue, muscle stiffness and poor sleep quality. Fibromyalgia is seven times more common in women than it is in men and about 1 in 25 people will develop it in the course of their life. The exact causes of fibromyalgia are still unknown, but are believed to involve a combination of psychological, genetic, neurobiological and environmental factors. There is currently no cure for fibromyalgia, but there are several treatments that can help relieve its symptoms and make the condition easier to cope with.

In the past few years, an increasing number of people affected by fibromyalgia have resorted to acupressure in order to ease its symptoms in a completely natural fashion—no painkillers, antidepressants or other obscure medicines to ingest. Acupressure boosts blood circulation and stimulates the brain to release endorphins and oxytocin, thereby relieving pain and muscle tension and facilitating sleep.

Similarly, magnet therapy has been employed for centuries to relieve pain through the healing power of magnets. When placed on the skin, in fact, magnets not only improve peripheral blood circulation, but also reduce inflammation—which can be extremely helpful in alleviating many of the symptoms of fibromyalgia.

Today, it is possible to simultaneously enjoy the benefits of both acupressure and magnet therapy thanks to our exclusive  Magnetic Mysa . Its special, negative-polarity, permanent bio-magnets, in fact, do not only amplify the pain-relieving and circulation-boosting properties of acupressure, but also have an anti-inflammatory effect in their own right. And this makes our Magnetic Mysa ideally suited to relieve several of the symptoms of fibromyalgia in a rapid and effective manner (please click here for further information).

Please note that we are now able to offer two improved versions of our Magnetic Mysa: the brand new  ThermoMag Mysa Duo  and  ErgonoMag Mysa . The former extends the beneficial action of acupressure and magnet therapy to the neck and shoulder region, whereas the latter is ideal for all those suffering from a spine curvature disorder (scoliosis, kyphosis, etc.) thanks to the special lumbar support ( Mysa Hot ErgonoPad ) it comes with. Furthermore, both models allow their users to reap the benefits of heat therapy too.

The Mysa range of acupressure mats and pillows is by far the most complete on the market: there is surely a model perfectly suited to your needs.

And remember: if you are with Mysa, you are well...
