Finally, spring has sprung and it’s time to shake off the winter blues and enjoy some fun in the sun, although we are questioning if Melbourne got the warmer weather memo. As the temperature rises, so does the amount of pollen in the air and for most of us that means hay fever…… an itchy mouth, blocked nose, non-stop sneezing, a runny nose, watery eyes, headaches and a feeling of puffiness in the face.
Greeting spring with a smile isn’t so easy when you’re dreading the coming barrage of symptoms that accompany this change of season.
The symptoms occur as a results of your immune system responding to foreign particles in the air (pollen, dust, grasses, mould, pet dander) and attempt to expel them from the body, literally the reason we sneeze is to blow them well out of your body! While it’s good to know that our bodies defences are firing on all cylinders, it can also leave us feeling stressed and exhausted.
Taking some over the counter antihistamines can certainly provide some quick relief, but for those who try to avoid taking pharmaceuticals on a daily basis will be happy to know that massage can provide some much needed relief also.
Massage can provide a host of benefits as it helps to aid the movement of fluid through the lymphatic system and increase blood flow. By relieving some of that pressure in the face massage can clear blocked sinuses and relieve headaches. At the very least you’ll walk away feeling nice and relaxed.
Our team recently put together a quick video on how we can help hayfever, while Sam shows how to relieve some of that facial pressure.
