Of course, massages feel absolutely amazing, but do you know what they are doing to help you???
Massage Therapy is a physical manipulation with two main goals:
1) Increase blood flow and lymph circulation.
2) Relax soft tissue helping to release nerves.
Massage also helps our bodies release chemicals, as well as push the delivery of oxygen and nutrients to our muscle cells.
Some Acupressure points on the body can be easily found by ourselves to temporarily relieve pain. For instance the two points below found under the corner of our collar bones (Lu 1 and Lu 2).
Relieve guilt, depression, anger, and help yourself breathe.
When pressure is applied for a period of time to these points, we can help our lungs, chest, and emotions all at once. Aid your breathing, open a constricted feeling chest, and let out concealed emotions by holding these points.
Acupuncture is recommended for all animals who may need it and especially for animals with muscle and joint problems.
The big plus with this type of natural medicine is that it produces no harmful side-effects to the animals.

Garlic, for your Good Health...
What do you think when you think of garlic?
..Maybe you love garlic..
But if you don't, below we give you a few reasons why you should!
Included in garlic's therapeutic qualities is the ability to help keep our blood pressure low.
This is caused when our red blood cells produce and release the sulfur compound found in garlic, hydrogen sulfide gas (H2S). This sulfate aids in dilating our red blood cells, ultimately controlling our blood pressure. Garlic carries many other forms of sulfate as well.
Something to keep in mind is the sulfur garlic provides. Studies show the average person to have low sulfur in their daily diet. Garlic is the perfect way to help steer away from sulfur deficiencies.
Garlic has been shown to reduce Cholesterol and prevent blood clotting.
Ajoene is a disulfide in garlic that has anti-clotting properties. Ajoene helps prevent the platelets in our blood from becoming very sticky. If our platelets become too sticky we have higher risks of them clumping together and forming blood clots.
Keep inflammation at bay.
Aged garlic extract has been used to reduce inflamed airways during an instance such as a minor allergic reaction. Diallyl sulfide (DAS) and Thiacremonone in garlic carry these anti-inflammatory properties.
Acupressure is the process of stimulation by rubbing or putting pressure to a single area for a short period of time for relief. When done on different but specific points on the body, Acupressure can help alleviate all types of short-term conditions. Relieve eye strain, insomnia and stress, menstrual pains, nausea/vomiting, headaches, and even arthritis and sciatica pains by holding pressure to that area.
