Our body’s immune system works hard for us day in and day out. Each day we are put in contact with dirt, germs, bacteria and more just from doing normal daily activities such as going to work or school. One way to thank your immune system for all the hard work it does, and keep it functioning to the best of possible level, is to receive a massage. Your immune system can be weakened by stress, poor eating habits, lack of sleep, or many other common occurrences.
When your immune system is weakened you are more likely to get sick which can cause a wide array of other health issues. By indulging in a massage, you can boost your immune system and its functionality. Studies have shown that massages are able to increase the immune system’s cytotoxic capacity, which deals with the body’s “natural killers cells” – the cells that are first to defend against invading illness and decrease the amount of T-cells.
Another positive result that a massage can have on the immune system is increasing the ability of your body to fight against bacteria and infection and enhancing the body’s capability of getting nourishment to the areas that most need it. By boosting your immune system stress reduction will be a natural side effect.
