We all know that prevention is better than cure. The best way to keep flu, cold and infections at bay is by strengthening our Immune System , the body’s natural defence mechanism.
Research has shown that receiving regular massage, reflexology treatments or practicing yoga can help to boost your health and wellness, flush toxins and increase blood flow throughout the body. These holistic modalities can help to boost the activity of white blood cells that are responsible for fighting off illness and help us heal faster.
The immune system is made up of a network of cells, tissues and organs – the thymus, spleen, bone marrow and lymphatic system – that work together to protect the body. During a Reflexology treatment all of these organs and systems are stimulated to help boost circulation and help them work optimally, thereby increasing their ability to protect the body better. I love to work the face, hands and feet in a treatment, and often include bodywork or massage if duration and budget allow.
Stress is a huge impacting factor when managing our immune system. To include massage, treatments and yoga into your weekly regime can help reduce cortisol levels , curb anxiety as well as to release endorphins (the body’s natural feel-good hormones). Taking time out to breath, getting into your body, stilling the mind are all proven techniques. For more information contact Claire on 082 972 1110 ~ www.clairecoetzee.com.
