The winter months seem to be synonymous with colds and flu. It is probably not a coincidence that our increased sugar intake (which depresses our immune systems) between Halloween and Valentine’s Day does not help to ward off the bad bugs.

She was practicing a type of bodywork developed by Thomas Griner which is now called Neurosoma.
