What is Fibromyalgia?
Fibromyalgia is a common and complex chronic pain disorder that affects people physically, mentally and socially. Fibromyalgia is a syndrome rather than a disease. Unlike a disease, which is a medical condition with a specific cause or causes and recognizable signs and symptoms, a syndrome is a collection of signs, symptoms, and medical problems that tend to occur together but are not related to a specific, identifiable cause.
Fibromyalgia, which has also been referred to as fibromyalgia syndrome, fibromyositis and fibrositis, is characterized by chronic widespread pain, multiple tender points, abnormal pain processing, sleep disturbances, fatigue and often psychological distress. For those with severe symptoms, fibromyalgia can be extremely debilitating and interfere with basic daily activities. (National Fibromyalgia Association)

Many patients do, however, find that their symptoms persist and find themselves with significant limitations in their quality of life.
The Lightning Process is a training program developed by Phil Parker in London, England. His background in Osteopathy, Coaching, Hypnotherapy and Neuro Linguistic Programming (NLP) set the stage for his interest and insights into the process of translating current knowledge of Psychoneuroimmunology and Neuroplasticity into a practical training program for individual clients. The training program is designed to help individuals afflicted with a spectrum of disorders ‘re-program’ their sub-conscious responses to a variety of stimuli that have been known to disable their lives.
The Lightning Process is a training program that has evolved after several years of refinement. The program helps you take stock of the resources you already have and gives you tools to access them to influence the direction of your life, your health, happiness and wellbeing. The Lightning Process® is built on the belief that these aspects interact and need to be seen as a whole.
