Massage and Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)

For patients with Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS), massage is one of the most recommended alternative therapies for treatment of the symptoms of CFS.


CFS is a systemic disorder that affects hormonal levels, the immune system and the brain itself. Massage therapy is proven to be beneficial and effective for some patients in reducing anxiety and restlessness and also in improving sleep quality. Massage is a great option for patients with CFS who are not well enough to exercise.

Physical manipulations of the skin and muscles help promote good circulation and help to ease the symptoms of Chronic Fatigue Syndrome.
