In people with severe symptoms, fibromyalgia can be greatly incapacitating and interfere with daily tasks.
This new therapy uses an immensely low level magnetic field (EMF) administered by a specifically designed device called the Resonator™ created by Dr. Jerry L. Jacobson, along with the assistant therapeutic regulations intended to improve a number of signs and symptoms of fibromyalgia and other disorders and diseases which include atrial fibrillation, Parkinson's Disease, Alzheimer's Disease and osteoarthritis.
Currently a lot of people with fibromyalgia seek out alternative therapies to ease their symptoms.
