Massage Therapy For Colds Symptoms

Colds, or upper respiratory tract infections, are the commonest cause of illness in children and adults. Most colds are caused by a virus - there are over 200 types of viruses that can cause the common cold (that's why it's not possible to be immunised against a cold).

Colds are more common in the winter months. Cold weather by itself does not increase the chance of getting a cold, but people are in closer contact with each other because they stay indoors and are more likely to infect each other. The viruses which cause colds are spread by sneezing, coughing and hand contact.
