Does Myofascial Release Therapy Help Boost Your Immune System?

Myofascial Release Therapy works as a natural medicine on different body pain such as joint pain, neck pain, back pain, etc. It helps rejuvenate your body but did you know it also helps boost your body’s immune system as well? Many of us aren’t privy to the fact that studies have shown Myofascial Release Therapy works as a booster to increase the immunity of your body.

This is especially important in today’s world, with all these strange new diseases popping up; even the dark clouds of the coronavirus have already spread across the US!  As we grapple with hundreds of thousands of cases of the deadly, highly contagious coronavirus infection, precaution regarding our cleanliness, hygiene, and boosting of our immune system has become an indispensable priority. A recent study was conducted, that included 39 healthy males where all participants were randomly assigned to either a Myofascial Release Therapy group or a control group that rested. After twenty minutes, researchers measured the levels of several types of immune cells: CD3, CD4, CD8, CD19, and natural killer cells. The participants receiving Myofascial Release Therapy had significantly higher levels of CD19 cells, while the control group showed no change in their CD19 cell levels. CD19 regulates white blood cells that are involved in protecting the body against both infectious disease and foreign invaders. Significant changes in other types of immune cells were lacking. Thus a clear inference can be drawn from the aforementioned benefits and significance of that it is one of the most viable, natural solutions to increase immunity. Ergo, boost your immune system so that all viruses and diseases steer clear of you.
