Read this one through your skeptic glasses -- it's a press release:

CINCINNATI, Sept. 6 /PRNewswire/ -- Fibromyalgia patients worldwide are seeing rapid improvement in their symptoms from a high-tech medical device indicated for depression, anxiety, insomnia, and pain.
The device employs two distinct technologies, Microcurrent Electrotherapy Technology (MET) and Cranial Electrotherapy Stimulation (CES), to treat psychological and physical symptoms. It has been used by professional sports teams, such as the Dallas Cowboys and Indiana Pacers, and pain specialists to treat pain disorders successfully. Recently, rheumatologists have begun prescribing it for their fibromyalgia patients who are reporting significant results.
"The results are so positive in such a difficult-to-treat population that one becomes skeptical," says Robert S. Katz, M.D. of Chicago, IL while responding to a study on the device. "However, it is hard to dispute the present data. 90% of the patients treated with the CES reported improvement in quality of life."
. . . Marilyn Lins, M.D., of Utica Neurological Surgery, Inc. in Tulsa, Oklahoma said that the results she has been obtaining have been close to miraculous. A pain specialist, Dr. Lins reported on several fibromyalgia patients who have had sufficient pain relief to resume normal activities with as little as two 20 minute treatments per week. . .
Uh huh. We shall see.
But have any of you heard of this thing?
