It might start out as a sniffle one day and coughing the next as you are sure it is just seasonal allergies. Unfortunately, the stuffiness in your sinuses, wheezing in your chest and fever signifies a fall cold. The cold season has arrived and people are trying to find every type of method to deal with the symptoms for the next several days.
Dealing with Colds
The common cold is created by viruses. Since the virus changes and mutates year after year, there is no cure for a fall cold as people are left with treating the symptoms. While medication is ideal to treat fevers, one of the more difficult symptoms to treat is congestion. This problem creates mild to severe respiratory problems such as wheezing, coughing, throat irritation, chest pain and stuffy sinuses.
An ideal treatment for this congestion is not found in over-the-counter medications. Instead, breathing in moist air such as steam helps to open up clogged passageways in the chest and throat. By opening up these passageways, coughs can be more productive in clearing out the congestion so you feel better. You also have open airways as you can breathe easier.
NYC Day Spa Ideal to Alleviate Fall Cold Symptoms
Wet saunas offered at a NYC day spa such as Aura Wellness Spa can help to relieve many of the respiratory symptoms created by fall colds. In a sanitary environment, people can relax and breathe in the steam that can work to clear out passageways. The steam surrounds your body, creating a state of peaceful serenity, as you don’t have to rely on any costly machines to create the steam for you at home.
Going to a NYC day spa ensures that you undergo steam treatment during a length of time that helps with the congestion symptoms. While you may try to improve the air environment at home with humidifiers and vaporizers at night, you aren’t getting enough steam for a through detoxification. You are too busy at work, taking care of the kids, or doing house chores. Trying to spend 30 minutes in a hot shower or with your head over a bowl of hot water simply isn’t feasible or comfortable when you have a million other things to do.
Yet by spending a day at a NYC day spa, you can have a relaxing day in the steam from a wet sauna to help loosen the congestion. In addition, you can receive one of the best massage therapies NYC has to offer to help treat muscular pain or discomfort associated with colds or flus. When you leave, you will be able to breathe easier, feel refreshed and relieve muscle aches.
There are a number of different massages to select from that could help with your cold symptoms. Finding out the types that are offered and speaking with the knowledgeable massage therapy staff allows you to narrow down your choices so you can make the most out of your visit at Aura Wellness Spa.
