Ruth's story of CFS recovery

Mickel Therapy has taught me many skills that I know I will use for life

I was diagnosed with severe CFS at 18 years of age. For four and a half years, I suffered many debilitating symptoms associated with this condition. I was housebound, and entirely dependent on my family for support, as the severity of my fatigue left me unable to function. I saw many health professionals and tried […]

Life is exciting and fun again, the way it was when I was a child

I had fibromyalgia/CFS, insomnia, and migraines for a little over two years which had a sudden onset from the swine flu after several more years of slowly developing symptoms.
