Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Adrenal Fatigue – The Causes
Chronic Fatigue Syndrome
CFS, or chronic fatigue syndrome, is a condition characterized by continual tiredness. It is not relieved by long periods of rest, is not directly caused by other conditions, and occurs without warning. The condition can last for weeks, months, or even years.
In today’s fast-paced world, many people suffer from adrenal exhaustion. The symptoms occur as a result of prolonged stress. Chronic stress from school, family, work and other stressful situations can cause the adrenal glands to work past their limits and consequently underperform. Our nutritional choices and lifestyle habits also cause additional stress on the adrenals, as do smoking and alcohol.
Individuals experiencing fatigue report the following symptoms:
- Lack of energy
- Feeling unwell throughout the day
- Lack of motivation
- Finding it hard to concentrate
How Massage Therapy can help
Massage therapy can be a positive treatment to help regulate hormones and relieve the nervous system to reduce the stress response. This can in turn help combat depression and sleep disorders.
In addition to controlling the symptoms of adrenal exhaustion, massage therapy is particularly helpful in alleviating stress and regulating hormone levels as it enhances blood circulation and stimulates the lymphatic system. Massage therapists specifically recommend regular Remedial, Swedish, or Thai massage therapy sessions as an effective cure for fatigue and adrenal exhaustion.
