Do you suffer from seasonal allergies, or do you get to suffer from "stuff" all year long?
Either way, we have all the tips and tricks at Heal. in Altamonte Springs to have you felling better in no time.
As spring shares her beauty and rebirth, she also shares the itchy, watery eyes, sneezing, and never ending runny/stuffy nose...
If you're in Central Florida, you know all too well about pollen season. It not only brings blooms, but also plenty of coughs, sneezes and wheezes.
Then there are the grasses, or household "stuff" like mold, dust mites, or our beloved pets, all of it messing with our respiratory systems.
3 Ways to Naturally Relieve Allergy Symptoms
If the Orlando allergy season is taking a toll on you, and you’re tired of reaching for allergy medication and feeling drowsy, you’re not alone!
Did you know that natural options exist that are much safer and effective?
1. Dry Salt therapy
Dry Salt Therapy, also known as Halotherapy, is an all-natural, safe and drug-free remedy to take care of allergies and other respiratory conditions. Salt has natural antibacterial, anti-fungal and anti-inflammatory benefits aiding in loosening excessive mucus. The properties in Dry Salt Therapy make it a gentle and effective modality to take care of all the yuckiness of allergies, seasonal or otherwise.
Naturally find relief from seasonal allergies, bronchitis, sinusitis, headaches, COPD, eczema, and more through Dry Salt Therapy. One of the advantages of our salt booth at Heal. in Altamonte Springs is you only need 20 minutes to feel the benefits.

2. Facial Massage
Allergies often produce headaches and of course, sinus pressure and congestion. A facial massage uses gentle finger pressure on the head, cheekbones, and around the eyes to help stimulate the release of mucous.
Massage also generates a calming effect through the stimulation of the parasympathetic nervous system, reducing the body’s level of stress hormones (cortisol and adrenaline) often found responsible for an allergic response.
3. Essential oils
Essential oils can do more than just create a pleasant scent in your home, they can also support your allergy symptoms. Many essential oils contain anti-inflammatory properties, and work like antihistamines. Use oils in your favorite diffuser, or infused into your next massage. One of our massage therapists at Heal. in Altamonte Springs can help choose the best oil for you.
Our Three Favorite Oils for Relieving Allergy Symptoms
Peppermint essential oil is an excellent decongestant. Inhaling diffused peppermint oil can almost immediately unclog the sinuses and offer relief to scratchy throats by reducing inflammation. It can also act as an expectorant and provides allergy relief in addition to relieving symptoms from colds, coughs, sinusitis, asthma, and bronchitis.
Lemon essential oil works as a natural antihistamine. It can relieve excess mucus, and cool down inflammatory reactions. Lemon is also known for its antibacterial properties. Lemon oil helps support the respiratory system, and lymphatic drainage, which can relieve a stuffy nose, and helps to relieve coughs.
Eucalyptus essential oil is anti-inflammatory with a menthol-like feeling. When rubbed on the chest and back, it can help break up mucus and phlegm, clearing out the sinuses to breathe better. Goodbye, stuffy nose!
Not all oils are created equal, and not all should be used directly on the skin without a carrier oil. Speak with one of our team members here at Heal. in Altamonte Springs, we'll be happy to help select the right oil for your needs.
