Effects Massage Therapy in Patients with Congestive Heart Failure

What does research say about the effects of massage therapy on anxiety, comfort, and physiologic responses in patients with congestive heart failure?

Nearly 5 million Americans are currently living with congestive heart failure.

Feelings of physical discomfort and anxiety are often symptoms felt by patients suffering from congestive heart failure.

A study following 64 participants found that after massage therapy:

Systolic blood pressure, diastolic blood pressure, heart rate, and respiratory rates significantly decreased.

Oxygen saturation levels showed significant increases.

Male participants revealed a more significant reduction in anxiety than the female participants.

Those with more severe heart failure and greater levels of anxiety demonstrated significantly greater responses.

Healthcare continues evolving to less-invasive, natural, and drug-free methods, recognizing the value of massage therapy as an aspect of wellness.

The American Massage Council offers the most affordable and reliable professional liability insurance for massage therapy coverage and more.
