Boost Your Immune System With Massage
By Ric Chamberlin, LMT

A Challenging Season
We are currently in the cold and flu season, the time of year where our bodies can become weakened
due to the season change, making us vulnerable to virus and bacteria. Even a healthy person can find
season change a challenge. Add to that the effects of stress which greatly impairs our immune system.
It's a fact that people under stress get sick more often than people experiencing little stress.

Massage To The Rescue
There is an easy tool to improve a compromised immune system AND reduce stress so the immune
system isn't weakened.
Regular massage can improve your bodies immune system, reduce stress, and provide the sense of
balance and well-being you need to survive this challenging season.

How Can Massage Improve the Immune System
  • Studies have shown massage increases the activity of the immune system:
  • Increasing the natural killer cells that destroy viral infected cells.
  • Increasing oxygen to the cells.
  • Increasing blood circulation.
  • Increasing lymphatic circulation, flushing toxins out of the cells.
  • The bodies ability to utilize nutrition is enhanced.

Stress Is Reduced
Massage has a calming effect on the nervous system. Breathing is improved. A sense of balance and
well-being can be achieved.
When you add the other benefits, Release of Endorphins, the "feel good" hormones, reduction in
anxiety and depression, and an easing sore muscles and joints massage is a winner!
