Fibromyalgia isn’t foxy. But, the Fibro Solution is!
Co Founder of TCM Hub and of Fibro Solution, Licensed Acpuncturist, Chris Volesky, is an expert in helping people suffering from Fibromyalgia. As a child, Chris dealt with chronic pain and debilitating migraines. Being involved in a couple of car accidents didn’t help his pain much either. Excessive use of acetomenophins eventually led to him getting pancreatits in his early 20’s. Luckily, his Chiropractor suggested he try Acupuncture. And this fascinated him, leading Chris into studying Traditional Chinese Medicine for himself.
He received his Masters Degree of Oriental Medicine from Northwestern Health Sciences University. While there, he had the privilege of doing acupuncture for multiple clinics, the Salvation Army, and the Courage Kenny Rehabilitation Institute, where he treated people suffering from brain and spinal cord injuries. Chris was also fortunate enough to be one of only a few practitioners who had the chance to work in-patient at Woodwinds Hospital, specializing in post-surgical pain management.
Later on, he was hired by CMC-NorthEast hospital where he saw patients in all areas of the hospital (neurology, post-surgical, oncology, etc.). He created a treatment program designed to help those suffering from fibromyalgia syndrome and other autoimmune diseases.
Today Chris runs a successful TCM practice in Longmont, CO and teaches other Acupuncturists how to support, serve, and treat those suffering from Fibromyalgia.
