We are a small, start up  organisation dedicated to improving the health and wellbeing of all kiwis affected by Fibromyalgia. We run online and in-person support groups, and we are currently developing a FMS management curriculum you can use from the comfort of your own home.


Beginning in 2014 as, Fibromyalgia Aotearoa New Zealand was founded with the vision of wellbeing for all people with Fibromyalgia. While Fibromyalgia is never easy, we believe that with the right treatment and support, people affected by FMS can live fulfilling and healthy lives. Our mission is to support this vision by providing up to date, evidence-based information; online and in person support groups; Fibromyalgia training; and wider Fibromyalgia advocacy. We are currently funded in whole by our founder, but while we are a new start-up organisation, the demand for our services is only increasing, with more people getting in touch every day with requests for information and support. As such, we are currently expanding our services to include more in-person and online support services.

We’re here to support

Fibromyalgia Aotearoa New Zealand is dedicated to supporting all people affected by Fibromyalgia, and associated conditions. While our support groups are for people with lived experience, we also have resources available for family and community, as well as health professionals. It takes a team to manage Fibromyalgia, and we make sure we’re all on the same page.

For Patients

We provide online information, as well as support groups to help you manage your fibromyalgia. You can join a support group in person, via teleconference, or on Facebook.

We believe that with the right support and strategies, it is completely possible to be healthy and well with Fibromyalgia.


For Community

If you’re a friend, family member, or other member of the community looking to see how you can support people with Fibromyalgia, you’ve come to the right place. We have a number of ways you can make a difference.

If you’re interested in supporting FMANZ through volunteering or raising awareness, we’d also love to have you!
