Spring Allergies - self help
help ease these symptoms in under 30 seconds
When spring is in the air, there are also billions of tiny pollens that trigger allergy symptoms in millions of people. This condition is called seasonal allergic rhinitis, commonly referred to as hay fever.
Hay fever can affect your quality of life. It can lead to sinus infections, can disrupt your sleep and affect your ability to learn at school or be productive at work.
Symptoms can include…
So, let’s help ease these symptoms in under 30 seconds...
You may have noticed that if you’re experiencing stress when it’s the allergy season, your allergy symptoms get worse. So anything that relieves stress should help reduce your allergy symptoms.
Reflexology calms the nervous system and carries you to a state of deep rest and relaxation by stimulating reflex points on your feet, hands, face or ears. There are thousands of nerves in these areas. This is why a reflexology session is so blissful.
While reflexology is releasing tension and stress, it also positively touches your organs, glands, and every other part of your body, because each body part has its related point on your feet, hands, face and ears.
Here are some reflex areas on the hands that, when stimulated, help ease the above symptoms, helping you breathe easier. Using your thumb or index finger, simply press and hold each area for five seconds…
Chest… helps release congestion
Sinus… helps open-up blocked sinus cavities
Pituitary… helps stimulate and balance hormone secretion of all other glands
Solar plexus/diaphragm… helps reduce stress and relaxes breathing
Adrenal… helps boost your energy level
Stimulating these areas can help strengthen your immune system, balance the flow of energy, promote wellness and benefit both seasonal allergies and chronic asthma.
Spring is a beautiful time of renewal and new beginnings. Reflexology is a great tool to help you make the very best of this season.
