The Magic of Massage Therapy

I was going through intense physical therapy to recover after surgery, and every day I went to bed with sore, achy muscles. Finally, my physical therapist suggest I give massage therapy a try. Massage therapy really helped me relax and unwind after a hard day at physical therapy, but I think it also helped speed my recovery. It helped with blood flow and circulation, and I really felt much better after every session. I liked it so much that I kept going even after I was fully recovered. I started this blog to talk about the magic of massage therapy. It really helped me, and I believe that it can really help others as well. If you’ve been wanting to learn what massage therapy is like and how it helps, you’ll find the answers here on my blog.


3 Reasons You Are Getting Eye Infections

Eye infections are more common than people think. These infections can be very uncomfortable, causing you to feel pain and irritation such as itching. But even more importantly, if not properly treated and cared for the infection can damage the eye. Here are some of the causes of eye infections.

1. Dirty Makeup

Did you know that your makeup bag is one of the dirtiest places in your house? Your eyes have bacteria and dirt on them all day. When you apply makeup you transfer this bacteria onto your brushes and into your makeup. However, even though there is lots of dirt on the brushes and in the makeup itself, few people realize that they need to clean and replace their makeup. For this reason, people get eye infections from their makeup.

If you haven't replaced or cleaned your makeup in a good deal of time, you are overdue. You should also replace and clean your makeup after you have had some sort of eye infection.

2. The Improper Wearing and Use Of Contacts  

Improper use of contacts can also be a cause for infection. Your eye is exposed to bacteria everyday. Luckily, the tears in your eyes help to remove the bacteria from the eye. When you have a contact on your eye, it prevents the eye from fulfilling cleansing itself. In addition, the contact can actually become dirty and keep the bacteria on the eye. This is why it is so important that you understand how to properly care for your contacts and not wear them too long. People who wear their contacts too long without cleaning them correctly and without replacing them nightly risk a very serious eye infection. Luckily, this can be avoided by following your optometrist's instructions about contact use.

3. Allergies

When many people get allergies their eyes will itch and become irritated. Unfortunately, you cannot prevent allergies, but you can control how much you touch your eyes. If your eyes are irritated you might be tempted to touch them. Avoid this temptation, seeing that the bacteria on your hands can easily cause an eye infection.

You should be washing your hands often and if you do have allergies, try using an eye drop that won't only alleviate the pain, but will also help to clean out any bacteria that might have been transferred to the eyes through your hands.

By understanding what causes eye infections you can work to avoid them.
