Some people may experience a profound fatigue, which is all encompassing, affecting daily routines, and not alleviated with rest. This tiredness is called “chronic fatigue syndrome,” commonly abbreviated to CFS. Coping with CFS can lead to feelings of anger, guilt, anxiety, isolation and abandonment. The feelings can lead to an increased stress level and exacerbated symptoms, which can make management and recovery more difficult. One treatment that can be beneficial to sufferers of CFS is massage, which can greatly improve the quality of life.
