Ugh!! The dreaded cold and flu season is here. Sneezing, scratchy throat, runny nose, aches and pains, and fever and fatigue—it’s enough to make you want to stay in bed until spring. But with the onslaught of germs you have to endure this time of year, you’re no doubt asking, “What can I do to ‘flu proof’ myself?” Believe it or not, an RMT in downtown Vancouver could be the ticket to a healthier happier winter season.
Want to skip seasonal suffering?
Staying healthy during the cold and flu season can be tricky. Sure, we all know the basics—washing your hands regularly (remember the count to 15 rule, or sing the Happy Birthday song twice rule), eating nutritious food, getting enough sleep, and avoiding stress (blah, blah, blah). But did you also know that getting some massage therapy is an excellent way to fend off cold and flu?
Preventing colds and flu with the help of registered massage therapy Vancouver?
So, how does it work? When it comes to keeping nasty bugs at bay, a healthy immune system is key. Research has shown that massage therapy boosts the activity of disease-fighting white blood cells in your immune system, helping your body combat bacteria and infection—and skip the misery.
An RMT in downtown Vancouver can also work wonders for your circulatory and lymphatic systems, which in turn will help prevent and manage seasonal illnesses. Getting regular massage treatments promotes better blood, fluid, and lymph movement to help remove harmful intruders from the body.
Reducing cold and flu symptoms with an RMT in downtown Vancouver
Massage therapies are also great at reducing cold and flu symptoms. This effective treatment can help relieve sinus pressure, congestion, coughing, headaches, breathing problems, and body aches and pains. Just because the cold and flu season is here, doesn’t mean we have to scurry off to the nearest drug store and stuff our medicine cabinet
full of quick-fix remedies, such as decongestants, cough suppressants, and painkillers. Now is the perfect time to take a hands- on approach to seasonal illnesses. If you truly want to get the jump on colds and flu, massage therapy will help keep your immune system in tip-top shape.
