Effect of Massage Therapy on Blood Pressure

Effect of Massage Therapy on Blood Pressure

Massage therapy is one of the oldest healing traditions and the therapeutic benefits are numerous!

According to a recent study, massage also has a positive lasting effect on blood pressure. The study, “Durability of Effect of Massage Therapy on Blood Pressure,” involved 50 women between the ages of 18 and 60 with prehypertension.

The women were assigned either the massage group or control group, with the massage group receiving 10 to 15 minutes of Swedish massage 3 times a week for a total of 10 sessions.

The research revealed the average systolic and diastolic blood pressure of the massage group was significantly lower in comparison with the control group and the positive effects on blood pressure remained 3 days after the study.

Studies continue to showcase the effectiveness of massage therapy in treating a range of symptoms related to a variety of conditions.
