Dear customer and follower

I hope you are keeping well and safe from this pandemic virus.

I am writing to give you some general advice and some suggestions on how to boost your immune system .



I also want to take this opportunity to reassure you that we take great pride in the highest standards of hygiene at The Oxford Massage Centre:

  • We wash our hands with soap and hand sanitiser, before and after each treatment.
  • After each customer, we always sanitise beds with antibacterial sanitiser, we use disposable towels for you to lie on and a disposable headrest and the towel that you are covered with is always a clean one, washed by Oxwash . (They are an award winning eco-friendly laundry service based in Oxford who are re-engineering the laundry process from the ground up; their aim is for zero net carbon emissions for the whole process, from collection, through washing and back to delivery).
  • Cristina and Russell are fit and well and both are using masks if needed.

At OMC we always aim to provide an excellent treatment to each of you at all times.
We are grateful for your custom and we thank you for the trust you put in us.  

Here are a few immune boosters:

  • Increase beta-carotene intake or provitamin A is a natural colorant in many fruits and vegetables, which has an intense antioxidant effect: Carrots (juice is an excellent source of beta-carotene protection for the lungs or simply eat it) , chard and spinach, mango, apricots, pumpkin or squash, sweet potatoes, squash or yams
  • Broccoli - a powerful antioxidant that is also anticarcinogenic, and regenerate lung tissue damaged by tobacco or chronic infections. 
  • Supplement of Vitamin D3 and vitamin C (500 mg per day) and Zinc (30-50 mg per day)  or eat lots of fruits and vegetables that are rich in vitamin C and other antioxidants, such as oranges, kiwi and dog rose  infusion(Rosa canina), lemons, tomatoes, papaya, mangos,kiwi, red peppers
  • Garlic and onions - they boost the defenses
  • Raw garlic is the best natural antibiotic
  • Manuka honey or acacia honey with ginger and lemon
  • Dried Grapeseed - powder, is full of antioxidants
  • Propolis tincture
  • Eat plenty of raw sunflower, sesame seeds, chia seeds (they are rich in calcium and omegas).
  • Ginger 
  • Eat nuts, grains , vegetables oils and wheatgerm to increase the vitamin E intake
  • Eat Brazilian nuts to increase Selenium intake
  • Eat raw flat parsley


The recipe is my own personal immune system booster which I  try to eat as often as I can :  

I wash 2 lemons and cut in dices, I add 2 -3 spoons of honey, I grate a small piece of ginger , I cut in small pieces or grate 2-3 cloves of garlic (optional), I add 2-3 red chilli pepper's flakes (optional) and I grate an avocado seed (optional). (Let the avocado seed to dry out for a couple of days so then you can use it in the recipe).
I keep it in the fridge and I eat 2-3 spoons a day. 

Regular consumption of avocado seeds make it harder for viruses and bacteria to take root in our body. The garlic is a natural antibiotic whilst the lemon contains high amount of vitamin C.  Fresh ginger may also be effective against the RSV virus, a common cause of respiratory infections. 

If you have stomach aches, do not use the chilli pepper or the garlic. 
To help get rid of the garlic smell, eat raw flat parsley or coffee beans. 
The raw flat parsley contains Vitamin A , C rich in antioxidants, vitamin K, folate (vitamin B), potassium. 
The vitamins and beneficial plant compounds in parsley may improve bone health, protect against chronic diseases, and provide antioxidant benefits.


See below some general advice :


  • Wash hands frequently  especially after shaking hands or being with other people. 
  • Do not touch the face with hands
  • Avoid crowds
  • Ventilate rooms well
  • Frequently vacuum and clean carpets, drapery, rugs, wool blankets
  • Breathe fresh air
  • Sun bathing
  • Get enough rest
  • Wear warm clothing
  • Drink enough water and herbal teas
  • Humidify the environment
  • Avoid abuse of antibiotics. 
  • Soak feet in hot water
  • Inhale antiviral aromatic essences such as lavender and common thyme
  • 🙏Pray daily🙏


I hope this advice will help you go through this difficult time and we look forward to seeing you at our Centre soon.


Healthy Regards,

Cristina @ OMC's Centre
