Mickel Therapy is a talking based treatment, developed in 1999 by medical doctor Dr David Mickel for M.E./CFS, Fibromyalgia and other chronic conditions. The therapy is based on the hypothesis that the Hypothalamus gland in the brain – which normally regulates everything in the body – can become overactive creating a wide range of symptoms.
It is thought that this happens as a result of accidentally ignoring emotions which leads the emotional brain to enlist the help of the hypothalamus to get our attention by sending us symptoms; it is the emotional brain’s way of shouting louder at us to evoke a reaction.
Mickel Therapy gives people the guidance and tools to effectively listen to their body, translate symptoms back into emotions and take appropriate action. When we do this, the need for symptoms and, therefore the symptoms themselves, should disappear.
