Fibromyalgia (FM) is characterised by chronic widespread pain. Its exact cause is unknown but is believed to involve psychological, genetic, neurobiological and environmental factors. Other symptoms include debilitating fatigue, sleep disturbance, and stiffness. Some patients also report difficulty with swallowing, bowel and bladder abnormalities, numbness and tingling, and cognitive dysfunction.

Shiatsu College Dublin runs a workshop specifically aimed at therapists working with FM clients. The workshop is run over 2 days with the emphasis on ‘working with fascia through lightness, soft touch & energy release’

This workshop is for qualified massage practitioners only and carries 40 CPD points from IMTA (Irish Massage Therapists Association)
