Talk-colloquium in Albox to commemorate Fibromyalgia Day

The Albox Town Hall has commemorated this Monday the World Day of Fibromyalgia, a disease whose origin is unknown, which mainly affects women and, in most cases, the first symptoms appear after the third decade of life.

The activity, held in the Federico García Lorca Hall, was organised by the Department of Equality and Health, directed by Eva Vanesa Águila, in collaboration with the Almanzora Women’s Fibromyalgia Association.

A Talk – Colloquium under the title “Making the invisible visible”, in which different aspects of women’s health were addressed and in which professionals who work with women in the municipality of Albojense who suffer from this disease took part.

Antonio Teruel, on behalf of Sano Center, provided his knowledge on the importance of leading a healthy life and the benefits of strength work on ageing. Isa Sampedro, from Centro de Psicología ARAL, on patient care from a psychological point of view. Ana Rodríguez, from Fisioterapia Vitea or Juani Gómez, therapeutic yoga instructor.

In addition, Pepi Juárez, from the Fibromyalgia Association itself, spoke as a patient of the disease. Councillor Eva Vanesa Águila, in her capacity as a psychologist, was responsible for introducing the different themes: menopause, vitamin deficiency, hormone substitutions for a good quality of life, seasonal outbreaks and the state of mind and nerves in fibromyalgia patients.

The event was attended by the Mayoress of Albox, María del Mar Alfonso, who had words of encouragement for the women who live with this disease and the Association that represents them; “I would like to take advantage of this meeting to thank you for the work you carry out. With your Association, patients suffering from this disease can feel supported and have a place to go for help and information. We at the Town Hall will be attentive to your needs and we will provide the help you require”.

The activity is part of the special programme organised by the Municipal Women’s Information Centre to mark Women’s Health Month, which is commemorated on 28 May and which also includes a laughter therapy workshop, convivial gatherings and breakfasts, a workshop on vases using the stained glass technique to be held next week and a Master Class in urban dance for young people.
