“Massage Fights Disease-Massage therapy increases the activity level of the body’s white blood cells that work to combat viruses. According to research from Cedars-Sinai, participants in a Swedish massage group experienced significant changes in lymphocytes, which play a large role in defending the body from disease.”
Lymphocyte is a white blood cell in the lymphatic system. With this above information I’d like to also add that Body Brushing stimulates the lymph system helping to produce more white blood cells and antibodies. I just added Dry Brushing as an add on for services. I highly recommend.
Please continue to read my post. I’ll be adding many helpful tips on how to take care of your body in very well researched and practical ways. I also want to start posting suggestions on affordable products to have in your home for self care. My 1st suggestion is Epsom Salt. I’ll post on the wonderful benefits of this Magnesium based substance, something you may have just thought a Grandmothers folk lore. Some of my findings will be theory and some will be fact. Please feel free to ask any questions or just be in the conversation. Thanks for tuning in!
Stay in tune and be well,
