Goodbye Colds / Hello Health – Massage Therapy to Boost Your Immune System
Cold and flu season is coming soon and there is nothing worse than being laid up in bed with the flu. Your immune system kicks into overdrive and you feel horrible until it does its job. Why not boost your immune system BEFORE you catch a cold so you will feel good all season long?
How can you do you that? The answer is simple; massage therapy. The very same massages that can help you relax and ease your sore muscles, can also help you fight the flu virus as well as common colds. Any time you begin to catch a cold or the flu, it attacks your immune system causing it to weaken.
Currently, there isn’t much that can be done about a cold or the flu virus except wait to get better. Utilizing massage therapy as a way to boost your immune system is one way to avoid catching that cold in the first place. Not only does massage therapy help you fight off the common cold, it can also make the duration that the cold lingers much less after the initial onset.
How Does This Work?
Massage therapy boosts the immune system first by reducing your stress levels. Stress can cause a weakened immune system making it easier to develop a cold. Massage therapy also improves your blood flow. This increased circulation helps to battle the cold and flu viruses much more effectively.
Massage therapy can also help your lymphatic system do its job more effectively. The lymphatic system is responsible for eliminating the toxins that build up in your body and a massage can help stimulate this system.
So now that you know how massage therapy can help boost your immune system and keep you healthier throughout the cold and flu season, isn’t it time you booked your massage today? Give the professionals at Return to Glory a call today and be ready for cold and flu season this year.
