Reduces Heart Rate

While most people now understand the dangers associated with high blood pressure, most people don’t understand exactly why it is a health problem. High blood pressure has very few symptoms – you often learn about having it too late. Contrary to popular belief, it affects men and women alike and anyone of any age can have high blood pressure. That’s why everyone should get their blood pressure evaluated when they visit the doctor, and why it is referred to as the ‘silent killer’.

Therapeutic massage administered by a trained, professional Massage Therapist is one of many proven methods to combat heart disease by lowering the heart rate. Therapeutic massage can decrease both systolic and diastolic blood pressure (the numbers you hear at the doctor when they check your blood pressure) as well as reducing the hormones in the body that can cause stress. Heart health is a serious matter and mitigating the risk of serious heart-related issues, including heart attack, stroke, and even kidney failure, may just be the most important thing you ever do to support your healthy body.

Make sure your schedule includes a regular therapeutic massage from a LaVida Massage Wellness Center, as part of your well-rounded heart health routine.
