Tres Belle Spa: 4 Tips To Avoid Getting Sick November 16 2015

There are many different ways to avoid getting sick this flu season. If you still get sick, building up your defenses now, can help speed up your recovery time. We all know those people who never seem to get sick. Here are 4 things that they likely do:

Ginger

1. MASSAGES

Studies show that massage reduces your heart rate and lowers your anxiety. Reducing stress allows your immune system to function at full strength. Try a massage once a month and think of it as a little vacation for yourself. Tres Belle Spa is offering massage Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays. Our table is heated which will enhance relaxation and healing.

2. WASH HANDS FREQUENTLY

Hand-washing is the number-one action you can take to avoid the 1 billion colds Americans come down with annually (not to mention the bacteria, such as E. coli and salmonella, that cause foodborne illnesses). This fact is from Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

3.  GINGER

Not only does ginger help easy queasy tummies, it helps to drastically reduce your risk for heart disease. Ginger used in cooking or taken in powder form everyday can greatly reduce your risks of catching cold. We suggest this crazy delish Ginger-Aid. Get 10% off on days you visit the spa.

4. GARLIC

If you're already taking garlic to ward off vampires, you're ahead of the game. Garlic is a powerful antioxidant with antimicrobial, antiviral and antibiotic properties. It also provides decongestant and expectorant effects. PASS THE GARLIC BREAD.
