This is a training session designed to educate fibromyalgic patients on their vicious cycles. The vortex questionnaire can reveal up to three types of vicious cycles in a given patient. The training can be done on a basic level in 5 minutes. In depth psychotherapy could be added. The author believes that vortex education training should be a standard part of fibromyalgia treatment, but formal studies would be required to full substantiate this claim.

The training begins by explaining to the patient which vicious cycles were found in them based on their questionnaire. The next step is point out which had the highest score, so that the patient can begin to start organizing their mind to take on their most severe vicious cycles first.
