May 22, 2016

Massage can help during the cold and flu season:

  • Massage after 2-3 days of having a cold can help move the virus through your system detoxing and purifying your body.
  • Massage can help improve blood and the lymphatic circulation, helping to boost your immune system.
  • Massage helps reduce the effects of stress making you less susceptible to illness. Cortisol levels are decreased which are responsible for stress and oxytocin levels are raised (the happy contentment hormone).
  • Massage creates positive changes in the endocrine system where hormones are formed . Hormones affect mood desire, depression, alertness, sleep and hunger. A good nights sleep is the key to good health.
  • Massage circulates lymphocytes which are responsible for the destruction of harmful substances within the body.
