Chronic Fatigue and Massage Therapy

Posted on February 27th, 2015 by Shari´ Parks

Chronic fatigue syndrome, commonly known as CFS, is certainly an illness that leads to severe and many times disabling exhaustion and fatigue. Also accompanied by pain in various parts of the body. Chronic fatigue can last for months or years. The exact cause is unknown; however some of the factors can be allergies, a malfunctioning immune system, or chronic infection.

If this is you, there are a variety of alternative therapies to select. Three of the most common treatment choices are massage therapy, acupuncture and yoga.

Massage therapy can reduce stress-related symptoms, improve circulation, and increase your overall sense of well-being. Acupuncture stimulates the body to heal and protect itself from negative forces. Yoga encourages breathing techniques to give the body energy.

Whatever method you select CFS is a condition that can be managed; restoring optimal health and pulling you out of exhaustion that you may have experience for far too long.
