Blood Pressure Benefits of Massage

Much research is now finding that massage of the neck, back, shoulders, abdomen and legs is contributing to the reduction of hypertension.

When done by a professional, the pressurised movements of massage stimulate receptors which in turn activate the vagus nerve emerging from the brain. This nerve is responsible for the regulation of our blood pressure throughout the body.

A University of South Florida study conducted in 2005 found that patients who were suffering from high blood pressure who had ten massages of ten minutes over three weeks showed major improvements in blood pressure as compared with the control group that recorded no improvement over the same period of time after having not received massage.

Massage could be the answer to all your blood pressure woes. See our website for more details.
