Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Mind-Body Medicine

Mind-Body medicine is based on the theory that we can directly influence what goes on in our body. In mind/body medicine, we are deliberately using the pathways of connection between mind and body to influence what goes on in the body. We are exploiting the mind/body connections to make things happen in our favor. 

The person with CFS is likely to encounter several different forms of psychological services, and mind/body techniques may be a part of any of them. Possible forms of psychological help include:

Individual or family therapy
Group therapy
Hypnotherapy and medical hypnosis
Imagery and visualization
Relaxation

The term mind/body medicine covers a variety of techniques you can use to help the mind influence the body. The basic tools of mind/body medicine include relaxation training, meditation, imagery and related approaches. These are frequently used in the group and individual therapy programs.
