For me this made the difference from being unable to work for 20 years because of chronic pain and fatigue to becoming a therapist again.

Microcurrent therapy is safe, gentle, non-invasive, and no side effects as you can get from medication.
The Alpha-Stim is FDA cleared for the relief of depression, anxiety, insomnia and pain. (The FDA is the Food and Drug Administration in the USA similar to NICE in the UK). There is currently (2017) a UK research study about the Alpha-Stim being done by Prof R. Morris at the NHS Improving Access to Psychological Interventions (IAPT) service.
The NHS are now using the AID to treat anxiety in the IAPT service at Leicestershire with Nottinghamshire taking it on soon.
The body is full of nerves and cells communicating with electric currents. Sometimes when there is pain etc. these do not work properly.

Pain, fatigue and anxiety doesn’t just rob you of enjoyable rest – it also takes away from your ability to do so many of the basic tasks of life such as work, improving quality of sleep, going out, shopping, vacuuming and gardening. Whether its Arthritis, Fibromyalgia, ME/CFS, Back pain, Stress or Past injuries, Occupational Therapy helps you regain your independence.
Linda keeps up-to-date with the best therapies. For example, in January 2017 she did a course by Dr Jonathan Kuttner a Pain Consultant, in trigger point release and understanding how to reduce the effects of 'Central Sensitsation'. Central sensitisation can happens to anyone who has been in chronic pain for more than 3 months. The nerves that carry pain messages can be altered and sometimes in unexpected ways. This doesn't mean the pain is all in our brain (imagined), the nerves are misbehaving but we can do something to reduce the impact of these nerve messages. In November 2013 Linda attended a Masterclass in Fatigue Management to enhance her skills in helping people increase their energy levels. At a Fibromyalgia conference in 2014 she learnt new ideas on how changing your posture can stop pain. Linda is currently editing a booklet for the charity FMA UK about 'Working with Fibromyalgia'. Do you know what 'Reasonable adjustments' to ask for and can you get a grant to buy equipment?
