Relaxation therapy can be a beneficial tool for people suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS). This is mainly because of the following reasons:

  • Stress Management: CFS patients often experience heightened stress. Relaxation therapy helps in reducing stress levels, enabling the body to function better.
  • Improves Sleep Quality: People with CFS often have disrupted sleep. Techniques in relaxation therapy can help improve the quality of sleep, contributing to overall well-being.
  • Promotes Mental Well-being: Those with CFS frequently struggle with depression or anxiety. Relaxation therapy can foster positive thoughts and feelings, promoting mental health.
  • Boosts Energy Levels: By reducing stress and improving sleep, relaxation therapy can indirectly boost energy levels, combating the constant fatigue found in CFS.

Relaxation therapy techniques such as deep breathing, meditation, progressive muscle relaxation (PMR), and visualization/ guided imagery can go a long way in managing the various aspects of CFS.
