With 1 in 3 Americans suffering from high blood pressure or (70 Million People) it is understandable that we as a nation need to get a handle on the heart disease. We consider diet, exercise, quitting smoking, acupuncture and a host of other things we can do for ourselves to bring our HBP under control. So today we want to look at massage therapy.

According to one study that wanted to look at the effects of Swedish massage on HBP, the study showed that massage therapy can lower systolic and diastolic blood pressure. Fifty women suffering from the condition were divided into control and test groups. The 25 patients in the test group received Swedish massage 10-15 minutes, three times a week for 10 sessions.

The control group’s 25 patients also were relaxed but received no massage. Their blood pressure was measured before and after each session. “Findings of the study indicated that massage therapy was a safe, effective, applicable, and cost-effective intervention in controlling blood pressure of the pre-hypertension women,” the study says. “It can be used in health care centers and even at home.”
