High Blood Pressure and Massage

Blood Pressure Massage: Can It Really Lower Your Numbers?

Today, high blood pressure is an epidemic in America, with 1 in 3 US adults, roughly 70 million men and women, suffering with this condition. High blood pressure and massage has been studied, however not so extensively that everything is known. The preliminary results using lab rats showed that 'touch therapy' (of which Therapeutic Massage is but one form) can raise oxytocin and lower blood pressure. But of course, humans are not rats, and such studies are of limited value in convincing doctors or the public that massage therapy is helpful for high blood pressure.

Further studies using human subjects concluded that what was true for rats seemed true for humans as well: Massage Therapy in humans, like 'touch therapy' in rats, can help lower blood pressure. In one study, a group receiving only progressive relaxation training felt more relaxed, but did not really experience any observable blood pressure changes, as compared to a second group receiving Therapeutic Massage, which did, in fact, show a decrease in sitting diastolic and systolic pressure. As part of that particular study, salivary gland and urinary stress hormone cortisol levels were recorded. Only the group receiving Therapeutic Massage experienced a statistically significant decrease in stress-related hormones.

Massage for high blood pressure may be a useful component of an overall strategy to lower your numbers. Talk with your doctor; he may just tell you he finds massage relaxing as well. Of course, this does not mean everyone can stop taking thier medication and be well after one massage; please proceed with the advice and direction of a knowledgable physician!

High Blood Pressure and Massage: Conclusions of Studies Look Promising

Another fairly recent study concluded that patient receiving a 20 minute session of Therapeutic Massage exhibited a lowered systolic pressure. And yet another study showed that systolic blood pressure and diastolic blood pressure decreased over time as each participant in the study had 10 minute massage 3 times a week for 10 sessions. Now, of course, these are just a handful of studies, but they seem to correlate with one another positively, showing change for the better in every study cited.

Many people have heard that a 'blood pressure massage', or a light, relaxing massage focused on helping a client recover from chronic tension and high blood pressure can help a person to relax and experience a real decrease in blood pressure over time. Therapeutic Massage for High Blood Pressure should only be performed by an experienced Massage Therapist who communicates well with her clients. This is so because excessive pressure, or pain, can lead to a temporary rise in blood pressure. For a person with already-high blood pressure, this is contraindicated. A relaxing massage with light-to-medium pressure is probably going to work better than deep tissue, but everyone's pain tolerance and personal preferences differ. Massage and High Blood Pressure is a big topic, probably because one third of Americans are afflicted.

Blood Pressure Massage: One of the Easiest Lifestyle Changes You Can Make!

Between sessions of Therapeutic Massage for high blood pressure, it would be good to learn more about what dietary, and other choices, you can make that may have helpful effects. Making change happen is often difficult. Starting with Massage Therapy is easy and requires no act of willpower, as do other areas thatyou may wish to change, sich as diet, exercise, interpersonal stress, job situation, and more personal sorts of stuff. Massage Therapy seems to help with high blood pressure, (view the studies on massage and high blood pressure here) and less high blood pressure ultimately means less stress, which may mean lowered blood pressure. Learning to lower blood pressure naturally takes time and effort. That is why most opt to deal with high blood pressure using drugs, exclusively. But Massage Therapy for High Blood Pressure fits into even the busiest, most involved people's schedules.

Mountainside On-Site Massage Therapy provides Mobile Massage services in Northern (NNJ) and Central New Jersey (CNJ), as well as New York City. Massage for high blood pressure is available right in your own home. Nothing can be more relaxing than at-home massage, unless your home life is a big part of your stress. In that case, we can even come to your hotel room. Believe it or not, we've had clients rent a hotel room a mile from home for a session, because they considered day spas busy and not at all relaxing, and they found it easier leaving the kids with their spouse at home, than getting an At-Home Massage and having the kids leave. Of course, such strategizing isn't necessary for most, and an on-site at-home Therapeutic Massage session is a fine way to relax and unwind, easy to arrange without any special preparation.
