Massage: It’s real medicine


There are many benefits to getting a regular massage but the right massage and I will be adding these benefits on future post. Here is one of the benefits, from an excerpt of Massage: It’s real medicine By Kristyn Kusek Lewis of Health.com 2007

“Massage helps ward off bugs by boosting your “natural killer cells,” the immune system’s first line of defense against invading illness. “We know that cortisol destroys natural killer cells,” Field says. “Therefore, since massage decreases cortisol, your immune cells get a boost.” Massage even seems to boost immunity in those people with severely compromised immune systems, such as breast-cancer patients.”

A good reminder, get out your coats, gloves, scarves and get your Massage to prepare you for the winter weather.
