In brief: Never heard of it
Within allopathic medicine, we lean towards sleep-wake cycle maintenance, exercise, and physical therapy as the mainstays of treatment for fibromyalgia.
Antidepressants such as Cymbalta also work well, as does lyrica (pregabalin). Tca's such as notriptyline are used successfully, and nsaids are indicated. Narcotics are contraindicated for fibromyalgia as there is no evidence to support its usage.

In brief: Theory
Fascial distortion therapy and orthopathy are theories among many about myofascial pain (and fibromyalgia).
They are not standard of care, as there is little supporting research. Unfortunately, fibromyalgia has no known cure and treatment theories abound online, promising results. Be a cautious consumer of treatments that are unfounded. Some may exacerbate your condition rather than remedy it.

Sadly, that desperation is what many use to try to rip you off. Just be careful. As for proven treatments for fibromyalgia, the best results come from a mix of gentle but consistent exercise, pacing yourself with rest breaks, a flexibility and strengthening program (yoga is a great example), postural retraining, correction of sleep abnormalities, and support of others. Meds can also help.
