Massage for a Healthy Heart

by Michelle Dorshkind on 02/15/13

February is traditionally focused on love, hearts, flowers and romance. I love decorating my house with red pillows, kitchen towels and home-made hearts my son made for the refrigerator. Another heart that is often overlooked is that very important organ in our body that pumps blood everyday to keep our internal engine running. Good nutrition, weight management and exercise are all good for the heart, but we must not forget stress management. Did you know, research shows that with massage, high blood pressure patients demonstrate lower diastolic blood pressure, anxiety, and stress hormones. Experts estimate that upwards of ninety percent of disease is stress related. And perhaps nothing ages us faster, internally and externally, than high stress. While eliminating anxiety and pressure altogether in this fast-paced world may be idealistic, massage can, without a doubt, help manage stress. Techniques like Reiki, Lymphatic Drainage or Acupressure are all calming and energetic for deeper healing and relaxation of your body and mind.
