About The Fibro Clinic South West
Hi and welcome,
The inspiration for the clinic comes from Jok Saunders, therapist and holistic practitioner, a fellow fibro-fighter with a mission to support others, to understand the facts and manage symptoms, to have a life with less stress and more energy.
If you’re stuck in the “Fibro-Stress-Loop” and want to get out – You’re in the right place!
When it comes to fibromyalgia we are all different, there is no single remedy or protocol that suits all, that’s why we provide encouragement as well as practical strategies that work for you as an individual. Our range of services include fun and educational workshops, including our very own bespoke Fibro Tool Kit, with regular support and a range of holistic treatments to safely treat symptoms such as:
Chronic pain / Allodynia / Hyperalgesia /Parathesia
Sensory overload and heightened sensitivity (visual/touch/smell/noise/pain)
IBS and digestion problems
Low mood / Depression
Intolerances / Allergies
The Clinic offers Fibromyalgia Support in numerous ways:
We understand the value of SUPPORT and feeling confident that you can share concerns about your illness and how it affects your life. Receiving a diagnosis, learning to live with an invisible chronic condition is a life changing process, grieving, letting go and acceptance of the imposed limitations has a ripple effect throughout, not only our own lives, but also family, social and career. Our very popular support groups are a great way to meet new friends and held in small confidential groups where you can discuss concerns and ask questions, a place to talk freely and feel validated.
Are you looking for Fibromyalgia natural, holistic treatment options?
Fibromyalgia is a complex condition and isn’t always clearly understood. We are able to offer expertise with our range of carefully selected mind- body holistic treatments to help you unwind and relax, perfectly suitable for the fluctuating energy and pain levels, as well as reducing the effects of stress on the body.
Our workshops include the fibro tool kit ~ a bespoke programme addressing the emotional and psychological aspects of coming to terms with fibromyalgia, with top tips to help you to customize your own self-care plan. We’ve also created a series of workshops on mind-body awareness, stress management, health and lifestyle.
Whether it’s a sanctuary to relax, a place to meet new friends or gain new insight and coping skills, we are committed to helping you find the best options to suit your needs.
Jok Saunders, the founder of the clinic, brings over twenty years of experience working in various organisations, NHS and private practice as a holistic health practitioner, trained counsellor, NLP Coach (Neuro Linguistic Programming) and Mindfulness teacher, specializing in stress managment.

In more recent years Jok’s life was turned upside down after being diagnosed with fibromyalgia and then cancer.
