Meetings are held every first Friday in the month from 7.30pm to 9pm. It’s a supportive, friendly group lead by Steph Knight who welcomes all to share information, compassion and ideas. It has a positive ethos cultivated to improve and help those with chronic hidden pain illnesses.  The cost is £1 per person attending which includes refreshments.

Oxygen Therapy for Fibromyalgia, CFS and ME

Oxygen Therapy involves breathing pure oxygen under gentle pressure. It is also known as HBOT.

Some people find that Oxygen Therapy helps to:

  • Reduce pain
  • Increase energy
  • Accelerate healing
  • Combat infection
  • Reduce inflammation

In a clinical trial, in Israel, 48 people with Fibromyalgia completed two months of Oxygen Therapy. Every one of those 48 people experienced an improvement in their Fibromyalgia. (Source: Rice University, 2015)

Researcher Ben-Jacob said: “The results are of significant importance since, unlike the current treatments offered for fibromyalgia patients, Oxygen Therapy is not aiming for just symptomatic improvement. It is aiming for the actual cause.”

Sharon H has ME. She said: “I’ve been going to the Oxygen Treatment Service in Letchworth for over a year,” Sharon adds. “The day after my treatment I feel so much better. My head’s clearer, I’m walking faster and I can think more clearly. Plus – I’ve met some great people. Oxygen treatment has worked wonders for my ME and my social life!”

Brian H has had extreme pain long term.  He had APS Pain Reduction Therapy with us in Letchworth. He said: “I did the six week Pain Reduction Programme. It worked well for me.  I have had pain free mobility for the first time in nine months. I finished five weeks ago. So far I am still pain free, despite moving furniture last week!”
