1 CEU Credit – NCCAOM and California
*No Florida Credit Available
What You’ll Learn: In this revolutionary training from our 2019 AcuGrowth Symposium, Dr. Kimberly Thompson shares what she’s learned in over 10 years of specializing in Fibromyalgia treatment. She’ll explain how Western medicine falls short for many patients, and why acupuncture should be a first-line treatment for chronic pain. You’ll learn to make sense of fibromyalgia within AcuGraph, and how to use an integrative, multimodality approach to bring relief and encourage longterm healing and wellness. In Dr. Kimberly’s words, EVERY acupuncturist should specialize in fibromyalgia, because it really can make a difference for patients.
Instructions: While viewing course materials, please consider these questions:
- According to Western medicine studies, Fibromyalgia Syndrome (FMS) is a “complex pain syndrome” which is difficult to diagnose. The main symptom of fibromyalgia is pain. List five other symptoms a patient with FMS is likely to present with.
- Fibromyalgia is difficult for Western practitioners to treat. List four common “Standard of Care” treatments typically used by Western medical doctors.
- Based on what you learned from this lecture, please explain why Western medical doctors typically fail when treating patients with FMS.
- According to current clinical research studies, fibromyalgia requires a “Multi-Dimensional” approach to treatment including acupuncture. Please share how your expertise as an acupuncturist can help bridge the gap between Eastern and Western medicine.
When you have completed the course work, you will be required to answer these questions on the course worksheet prior to receiving your end-of-course assessment for credit.

What About California Credit?
If you need California credit, our California Provider number (#1028) will also be listed on your NCCAOM certificate. Many practitioners find this is all they need to satisfy requirements.
We can create a separate California certificate if necessary. Reach out to us via firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
