Flu Fighters- Prevent The Flu

Along with other healthy choices in your life, regular massages are a key factor to help protect you from the flu and other illnesses.

Along with a healthy immune system activity, massage also helps promote better circulation and drainage from your lymphatic system. The lymphatic system helps to eliminate waste and toxins from the body. This is extremely helpful when your body is ill and already trying to remove toxins.

Creating a relaxed environment through massage can help to reduce stress, allowing your body to repair itself and ward off infections. get lots of rest, treat yourself to a massage and eat well. These factors alone will provide a great motivation for your immune system to rock it!
