While many of us joyously celebrate the arrival of Winter, those with seasonal allergies may be a little less eager to see that the season is upon us. Seasonal allergies, formally called “season allergic rhinitis” affect sufferers with a variety of unpleasant symptoms (i.e running nose, itching eyes, post nasal drip). These complaints can lead to more severe problems such as asthma or sinusitis. In a recent study at the University of Ohio it was found allergies were substantially worsened by stress and anxiety and that the effect of the stress/anxiety actually lingered causing the next day of symptoms to be even more severe. This brings about an interesting correlation with Reflexology and why it has been found to relieve allergies in clinical studies as well as in testimonial case studies. Since reducing stress can be effective in reducing the severity of allergies, and since Reflexology reduces stress, it is logical to conclude that Reflexology can be an effective tool in reducing the severity of allergies as well!
Allergies are a reality for many this time of year but new research has allowed us to see how we can offer the body a helping hand in its seasonal battle. De-stress this season with a relaxing reflexology session and enjoy being pampered while your body gets an added boost in living gracefully with the allergy symptoms.
We may not be able to alter the stressful sit we can situations in life but we can alter how cope. Reflexology starts with a calming action that brings relief to tense nerves, knotted muscles and busy minds.
