Fibromyalgia and Dien Chan

Fibromyalgia is considered a chronic condition that induces pain throughout the body and intense exhaustion. Although deep fatigue and headaches may also occur, the vast majority of them are mainly localized on soft tissues. We face widespread musculoskeletal suffering and sometimes on specific areas or joints.

It is often reported to us that the first symptoms appear after a traumatic incident that may have caused severe psychological stress. But other patients describe pains that accumulate gradually over time without any particular triggering event.

Before embarking on a heavy and medicated process that will congest our organic filters anyway (liver, kidneys, etc.), it is really worth relieving ourselves daily with natural and non-invasive interventions.

Throughout these years of practicing Dien Chan, we have treated many people suffering from fibromyalgia. Our trainer Javier Felipe, who practices in Navarre, has even participated a lot and helped the association of patients suffering from this condition by achieving surprising effects.

And as we always do at the International School of Multireflexology – Dien Chan (ISMDC), he taught the members of the collective how to continue the care themselves to offer unparalleled long-term support.

Most people suffering from fibromyalgia are women, and we find that in the majority of cases, we achieve better results by treating in a yang manner. So we face yin pains; that is to say: cold, diffuse, heavy, deep, dull…

We will then construct a yang treatment

one that warms, energizes, concentrates, lightens, invigorates…

This immediately prompts us to choose multireflex tools with yang effects equipped with spike balls and to organize our bqc·points formulas from the bottom of the face upwards.

The treatment plan

During each session, we address the person by first establishing a list of present pains. We must ask them to list the five most bothersome ones, starting with the most intense.

This type of diffuse pain tends to shift, so it is essential to classify them in ascending order of suffering; what hurts the most at the moment goes first.

It is interesting to note this list because we will consult it throughout the treatment and find that it is not fixed. But above all, it is important to remind our dear therapists to always address the person’s general state first. Since we are dealing with individuals who are rather fatigued by the tension induced by their pains, it is highly recommended to start with the anti-stress protocol.

Very effective, it allows you to quickly relax the nervous system to prepare the body for the treatment.

General state

1| Begin by calming the person if you feel they are in a stressful situation.

— Use the Yin rake nº416 to gently rake the scalp from the forehead to the nape for at least 4 minutes.

— If you are unfamiliar with the Dien Chan anti-stress protocol, here is its practical sheet:

Body step

2| The local treatment involves treating the affected area with a body tool.

— For large surfaces, prefer the Double yang ball nº410. For medium-sized body or facial areas, use the Double mini yang ball nº307.

— We then begin the treatment by “rolling” locally for at least 4 minutes. The motion should be pleasant and not damage the skin. If you feel that the person is very yin, tired, or experiencing severe internal cold, assist the movements of the tool by following them with a hairdryer. The warm air that accompanies your action penetrates deeply.

Reflex step

3| sing the reflex diagrams of Dien Chan, locate the reflex zones of the previously stimulated body part.

With an elegant gesture, make a hundred back-and-forth movements on each region with the small spike ball of the Yin-yang roller nº206.

— If the surface is larger, choose the Double mini yang ball nº307 to speed up a little.


4| In Dien Chan, we don’t treat for long without checking on the progress of the treatment. We must maintain constant communication with our patient.

— Already after the body step, ask if the pain has evolved. Check if it is still present, reduced, or worse.

— If the result is not satisfactory, check that your movements are sufficiently intense or that you have understood the description given.

— If, on the contrary, your treatment seems to be on the right track, have the list of pains redone and compare it to the first one.

It will be very interesting to notice the evolution of the enumeration. Don’t be surprised if the pain that was in second position in the first list has disappeared or receded.

You will be pleasantly surprised to see that some pains have lost their importance. This is a sign that everything is connected and that we are facing blockages of energy flows.

Consider then the first pain from the new list and resume your treatment plan at the second step: the local treatment.

Consolidation of the treatment

5| After treating two or three pains — and not wanting to prolong the session to avoid an adverse effect — we consolidate the treatment using a formula designed to rebalance the internal organs.

— With your Little-hammer yin-yang nº128 (rubber side = yang), stimulate each bqc·point about fifty times.

127· 87· 17· 63· 50· 41· 37· 1· 103· 300+

Enhance your formula by adding 2 or 3 bqc·points concerning the parts of the body you have treated. It’s as simple as using the Faceasit app, which will quickly provide you with all the assigned points for each anatomy.

✔︎ Give a yang sense to your formula by respecting the order of the bqc·points; from the chin to the forehead. The ‘+’ sign attached to the bqc·point name means “the one on the right” = yang.

Do not hesitate to perform Reflexdrainage to help the body eliminate mobilized toxins.


6| We must assign “homework” to do at home. Assist your patient in choosing the body multireflex tool that they will purchase from you. Teach them how to self-stimulate the painful parts of their body whenever they feel the need.

This is the best way to anchor your treatment over time. It will allow you to make faster progress at the next session. Our fibromyalgia care recipients almost always prefer the Double yang ball nº410. Most of the pains are bodily, muscular, and skeletal. With this multireflex tool, they have the opportunity to roll their legs, arms, and even shoulders.

For the back, they will need to find a generous soul, as the ideal is to lie on the stomach to receive the most comfortable massage.

The “Fibromyalgia” kit consists of the Yin rake nº416 to calm the nervous system, the Double yang ball nº410 to treat the body parts, and the Little-hammer yin-yang nº128 to apply the bqc·points formula.
