Massage Lowers Blood Pressure
High blood pressure is often referred to as the “silent killer” because there are no symptoms and people are often not aware of their high risk for cardiovascular disease. If you have high blood pressure, over the years it may damage your arteries, put a strain on your heart, and put you at risk for a variety of cardiovascular problems.
Combatting High Blood Pressure with Massage
Chronic stress, poor diet, age, and lack of exercise all contribute to this condition. This is where massage therapy comes in:
Studies have shown that regular massage sessions can decrease blood pressure, reducing your risk of heart disease.
Research has also shown that even a small drop in blood pressure can reduce the risk of deadly strokes, coronary artery disease and other vascular problems by more than 50 percent. A regular massage session schedule can help keep your blood pressure within a healthy range.
