Prevent Cold and Flu - Get a Massage

November 5, 2015

 

Research over the past decade or so has shown that receiving regular massage has benefits to your immune system.  Participants in the various studies had improved immune function and reported fewer colds or flu.

 

This is especially important for people with compromised immune systems, like people with HIV or undergoing cancer treatments.

 

It doesn't even have to be deep tissue work - gentle to moderate pressure Swedish massage was all that was needed to give the immune system a boost!

 

Keep yourself healthy this winter - schedule regular massage!
