Lowered Blood Pressure by Massage Therapy
Massage Normalizes Blood Pressure
It is a medical fact that the massage treatment lowers high blood pressure.
Massage helps the blood circulation in a way that does not burden the heart. It improves the flow through the veins and stimulates the blood vessels which control nerves. Massage therapy has the complementary advantage of relaxing tense muscles and tightening connective tissues of the blood vessels enabling blood to flow easily. Massage is a powerful tool for relaxation and helps reducing emotional tension, and calms stress-related cardio-vascular conditions.
According to a 2005 study conducted at the South Florida University, patients suffering from high blood pressure who received ten massages over 3 weeks showed significantly normalized blood pressure in comparison with a control group who didn’t receive massage treatment.
