Case Study: Swedish Massage to help Chronic Fatigue, Miss R Watson, Crawley

The problem 

A customer suffering from chronic fatigue syndrome recently attended our Crawley massage centre looking for a solution to her exhaustion and pain. A hectic lifestyle had cut into Miss Watson’s sleep schedule, leaving her with a terrible quality of sleep that had only exacerbated her chronic fatigue syndrome and left her unable to keep up with daily life.

Chronic Fatigue syndrome, or myalgic encephalomyelitis, is a chronic condition that leaves its sufferers feeling incredibly tired all the time, unable to perform their daily tasks, and with widespread muscle and joint pain. It can also lead to poor quality of sleep that doesn’t help with the exhaustion, and trouble thinking due to ‘brain fog’. 

As there is no cure for chronic fatigue syndrome, people with the condition have to look for methods to reduce the severity of their symptoms and improve their quality of life. 

The treatment 

In order to alleviate some of Miss Watson’s symptoms, we arranged regular massage therapy sessions, including Swedish massage. A Swedish massage involves tapping, kneading, and stroking muscles which helps you relax and destress, making it a great tool for those with chronic fatigue syndrome.

We also combined Swedish massage with some deep-tissue massage techniques. As a deep tissue massage focuses on deeper layers of tissue, it can target tension built up over time which helps decrease muscle pain.

These massage techniques aimed to alleviate Miss Watson’s muscle pain, improve her posture, and stimulate blood flow. 

The results 

Miss Watson was able to leave each session feeling refreshed and relaxed and saw a definite improvement in her symptoms. Over two weeks, Miss Watson saw a significant improvement in her energy levels, allowing her to return to her daily tasks and keep up with her hectic lifestyle. As her muscle and joint pain decreased, her sleep quality also drastically improved. 

Miss Watson is now a regular client at Jing Mai and also attends massage sessions at Meridian in Oxted.
