Spring comes in with that crisp breeze, the fresh morning rain, buds on the trees, tulips and daffodils blooming. You want to take it all in, smell the clean, lush air and the vibrant blossoms. Only there’s one problem: your allergies. Your eyes, nose and throat itch, you can’t stop sneezing, you’re congested and your nose is running at the same time, and you can’t seem to get any relief. Before you reach for your allergy medication, or nasal steroid spray consider a massage and the benefits of aromatherapy as a natural alternative for seasonal allergy relief.

Seasonal allergies are the body’s immune response to harmless substances like grass, pollen and mold. The body mistakes these allergens as threats and stimulates an immune response to produce antigens to attack these substances. When this happens we experience inflammation, watery eyes, itchiness, congestion and all those other typical symptoms of seasonal allergies.

So how can massage help with allergy relief? First and foremost we can help relieve some of that pressure buildup in the sinuses. With a facial massage pressure and congestion are released and most clients often experience immediate relief from some of the most uncomfortable symptoms of seasonal allergies.

Another method that we employ at Peace of Mind Massage is Swedish massage. Long, gliding strokes will increase circulation and lymphatic flow. Think of a Swedish massage for seasonal allergies like a fluid flush for your car. This technique stimulates the circulatory and lymphatic systems as well as helping the body remove waste and calm the nervous system. A facial massage combined with the stress relieving benefits of soothing Swedish massage can make a world of difference to those with seasonal allergy symptoms.IMG_3404

In addition to the relief of massage, we often enhance a seasonal allergy relief session with the healing benefits of aromatherapy. Chamomile, frankincense, eucalyptus, peppermint, basil, lemon and tea tree all work on the body in powerful ways. Separately or in combination, these essential oils can act on the body topically or just through inhalation to reduce inflammation, unclog the sinuses, act as expectorants for phlegm and excess mucus, support the adrenal glands, improve circulation, support lymphatic drainage, and to disinfect and remove airborne pathogens that can cause allergies. We use a high grade, organic and ethically sourced brand of essential oils. Read their story here.

If you suffer from seasonal allergies, think twice before turning to medications that often cause drowsiness, irritability, dry mouth, dizziness and more side effects. Consider the natural relief of massage and aromatherapy. Our expert massage therapists can help soothe symptoms and teach you self-care massage methods that you can use on your own. You can also find essential oils for seasonal allergies in our store so you can take home nature’s own medicine. Schedule today and beat the seasonal allergy blues so you can start enjoying spring!
