It’s allergy season here in the Mid-west again! With a mild winter, people started to sniffle and itch in mid-March! There is a visible yellow powder coating on vehicles and other outdoor surfaces. It’s time to head to the corner pharmacy for some antihistamines, right? Maybe not…
I have had a long history of allergy issues, and I am happy to say, for now, I’m doing quite fine, thank you! I have waded in the waters of eliminating diets, which have worked to some degree (eliminating sugar and dairy), and used neti pot techniques. But after taking a Tian Di Bamboo Massage CEU Workshop last fall, I noticed that I have not had near the problem I have had before! The part that had results involved rolling the calves with a stick of bamboo.
The two things I noticed were:
1) My nose immediately began to drain volumes and volumes of ick, and once emptied, my nose has been a happy camper ever since.
And 2) I never realized just how tight my calves had always been! Wowie!
For upper respiratory issues and allergies, grab a rolling pin from your kitchen, or an extra pipe from your garage and go to work rolling the back of your calves! … And keep some tissue handy…
When the nasal passages are cleaned out, you will feel much better! I have also had reports of success treating upper respiratory illnesses with calf rolling. Try it out!
If you would like me to work on them for you, contact me. : – ) Mandy
