  • Therapies: joint and soft tissue mobilisation, acupuncture
  • Mindfulness and other motivational & cognitive techniques
  • Alpha-Stim


  • Pain education - to beat pain and gain control you must understand it.
  • Mobilisation, massage techniques and acupuncture - for pain relief, to reduce stiffness, ease movement and gain a good sense of your body; all important in the recovery process
  • Specific exercises - to mobilise tight & stiff body regions, to develop normal control of movement; gradually progressed
  • General exercise - to progressively build up your tolerance and confidence for daily activities and your chosen exercises & sports
  • Alpha-Stim® - to effectively manage fatigue/stress related disorders. Alpha-Stim® technology uses mircrocurrent, and is not like a TENS machine. The results are long-lasting and cumulative. We currently only offer Alphastim for patient with Fibromyalgia and/or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.


  • Mindfulness & focused attention training - to gain control over your attention and emotional regulation; there has been a spotlight placed upon these techniques in recent years due to their effectiveness in stress and pain. We teach and practice mindfulness and other cognitive methods as a way of reducing the emotional aspects of pain, to directly tackle stress and to optimise performance
  • Graded exposure & pacing - there are often particular activities that are challenging, painful and sometimes avoided for fear of causing damage or harm. With new knowledge of pain and confidence to move we can gradually re-engage with these activities. Pacing means that we set a baseline and work towards your goal.

Fibromyalgia and Fatigue Management at the Chorley Clinic

Our specialist practitioner in fatigue management is able to offer comprehensive programmes designed to individual needs, encompassing pacing, sleep management, stress management and the use of ACT/Mindfulness and other cognitive techniques for the management of chronic fatigue. We are now able to incorporate Alpha-Stim® for the treatment of Fibromyalgia and Chronic Pain Fatigue at our practice.

How can the Alpha-Stim® help Fibromyalgia?

We currently only offer Alpha-Stim for patients with Fibromyalgia and/or Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.


Alpha-Stim® is a gentle, non-invasive treatment. Unlike some drugs, it leaves the mind alert. It uses tiny microcurrents, close to the level of electricity that naturally occurs in the body. The microcurrents produce residual and cumulative results that encourage the body’s systems to work better, such as improving circulation and helping the cells function. It helps to promote Alpha waves which lead to calm and alert feelings and these reduce the over-active ‘fight and flight response’ that increases pain and prevents restful sleep in fibromyalgia.


Alpha-Stim has been clinically evidenced as an effective treatment for all types of pain, long term chronic conditions, such as Fibromyalgia, CFS/ME, and associated stress, anxiety, depression and insomnia. For further information of the extensive research base, please click on the link below.
