What do I need to do to prepare for the treatment?

There is free video which can be viewed here where Dr Mickel explains his concepts around the creation of all the symptoms experienced with the conditions such as ME/ CFS and Fibromyalgia.

Dr Mickel’s book, is available to purchase and this provides a very useful introduction.

Reading the website, book and watching the video will provide a useful introduction and mean that when you attend for your first session the practitioner can answer any questions you have around this and then quickly move onto starting the process with you.
