WHY TO AVOID MASSAGE WHEN YOU HAVE A COLD!

The common cold is a viral infectious disease of the upper respiratory tract which affects primarily the nose.  Massage has a profound effect on the body’s circulatory system, facilitating the movements of fluid throughout your body. This is not good news if you are in the acute phase of the cold (typically the first 2 or 3 days of the cold). By moving fluids, massage can spread the cold through the body much more effectively than would happen naturally.
