Chronic Fatigue Syndrome is an illness that affects a person’s nervous system

What is Chronic Fatigue Syndrome (CFS)?

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterised by prolonged, profound fatigue or tiredness, sleep abnormalities, pain and other symptoms that are made worse by exertion and stress.

These symptoms don’t go away with rest and there is no underlying medical condition that explains them adequately. Fatigue can be so severe it will interrupt work, family, and social activities.

Symptoms of Chronic Fatigue

Other symptoms may include depression, weakness, dizziness, headache/migraine and digestive complaints eg nausea, irritable bowel syndrome, appetite fluctuations

Problems with concentration and memory, confusion, and sensitivities to light, noise, and emotions are reported. Symptoms can vary from day to day.

The exact cause of CFS remains unknown (there is no single test to confirm the diagnosis) but there is thought to be a few contributing factors such as viral infections, stress and/or trauma which can precede onset. It will be different for everyone.

Every person’s symptoms & factors are unique

Also, every person will have a unique combination of symptoms and factors that can exacerbate them.

Kinesiology will help you to isolate your contributing factors and prioritise your interventions for healing. The body can heal itself given the correct conditions, so it is with kinesiology we bring them about.

Stress, trauma, nutritional imbalance, chronic dehydration and many other things are brought up in a balance. We then formulate a plan to work towards including gradual, incremental exercise prescription and diet change.

Do you think you’re suffering from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome?

I have been studying and practicing for 20 years and I’ve learned a lot about the human body and how it reacts and heals itself.

A lot of what we have been trained to treat doesn’t work in reality for everyone. Every person is unique and requires a customised treatment program for their own individual symptoms and needs.

My unique approach combing physiotherapy, with kinesiology and gut health addresses the many facets that contribute to chronic fatigue syndrome.

If this article connects with how you, I’d be more than happy to discuss your situation in person.

Both my husband and I have been seeing Amanda now for almost 10 years – she is very professional and is able to diagnose the real issues quickly. Amanda also has a deep knowledge of the body and knows exactly what type of exercises and rehab to give you. I always feel great improvement once I have seen her and know I am back on the road to recovery. There have been a couple of times where I couldn’t even walk but Amanda really helped me through those difficult times. I would recommend her to anybody.


I have suffered from chronic back spasms ever since i had my second baby. I am happy to say after seeing Amanda and have some Kinesiology my lower back pain diminished very quickly and I am now back to normal and even signing up for the gym. I thoroughly recommend Amanda to all of my friends and family.


I just wanted to say a big thank you for your treatments. I’ve had great results with you as a Physiotherapist & even longer lasting wellness with the combination of all the modalities you practice. I always come away from my treatments feeling amazing. Also after all the years of trying to conceive we are pregnant with our first baby. I believe the balancing we did around conception helped us in a big way. Thank you


Amanda was able to help me see the things contributing to my pain which was more than just physical. This was very surprising and refreshing to me. My job has a lot of inherent stress and I definitely appreciate the tools and process Amanda uses.
