How Massage Can Help with Cold and Flu

Massage can help reduce recovery time from a cold or flu from over 10 days down to as little as 2, in some cases even 1 day.

Our immune system fights off viruses and bacteria but the it also can be compromised for any number of reasons. Massage Therapy can increase the body’s capacity to fight off bacteria and prevent illness as studies have shown. The best way to fight against flu is to prevent it and massage does a great job in this matter.

Massage Therapy Orlando helps prevent the flu in several ways:

  • Reduces the stress thus helping your body focus more on fighting the infection
  • Improve blood and lymph circulation consequently the elimination of “intruders” is more effective.
  • Increases the overall health and this leads to better immunity
  • Makes it easy to get rest, which is a boost to your immunity.
  • Boosts lymphatic drainage which can help relieve sinus pressure, head/nasal/chest congestion, stuffy nose, eye pressure, breathing problems, sore throats, coughing, headaches, body aches and neck stiffness.
  • If you are a physical active person, one massage per month, during the flu season, will help you drastically reduce the chances to be infected with Influenza.
  • If you are an inactive person, a few massage sessions per month will be best for your health.

It is important to remember that although massage can reduce recovery time it may worsen your symptoms. If you already have a cold or flu and have a fever, you should wait until the fever passes before getting a massage because it will raise your temperature. The fever is a good sign that your body is fighting the virus and should be left alone to do it’s job.

“Getting a massage can do you a world of good.  And getting massage frequently can do even more.  This is the beauty of bodywork.  Taking part in this form of regularly scheduled self-care can play a huge part in how healthy you’ll be and how youthful you’ll remain with each passing year.  Budgeting time and money for bodywork at consistent intervals is truly an investment in your health.  And remember: just because massage feels like a pampering treat doesn’t mean it is any less therapeutic.  Consider massage appointments a necessary piece of your health and wellness plan, and work with your practitioner to establish a treatment schedule that best meets your needs.”
