Massage and Hypertension
Massage helps to reduce blood pressure
Hypertension, known as high blood pressure, more often affects one of every three adults in the United States. Hypertension affects about 70 million adults in America. The primary or contributing cause for thousands of deaths in America is high blood pressure. Did you know that hypertension and its associated symptoms are reduced with massage therapy? Hypertension often goes unnoticed, since there is no apparent external symptoms associated with the disease.
Adults with hypertension should try to reduce their experience of stress in order to avoid increases in blood pressure, for this reason, massage can be beneficial for hypertension.
Massage can help relax tight, aching muscles, improve range of motion in joints and circulation and lower stress levels. It is a safe, noninvasive, and soothing for hypertension, especially for people who experience stress frequently. If treated regularly, therapeutic massages can help in giving you a long-term improvement in stress levels and heart rate.
Studies show that patients experience a reduction in muscle tension and the blood pressure, as a result of massage therapy; as well as a reduction in feelings of depression, less hostile behavior and reducing cortisol levels in their urine and saliva.
Here are a couple of studies that show the benefits of massage therapy in reducing high blood pressure:

Effects of Swedish Massage Therapy on Blood Pressure, Heart Rate, and Inflammatory Markers in Hypertensive Women
Many people do not realize the damage high blood pressure can cause and the risks on our health. If it goes uncontrolled, it can lead to disabilities and fatal heart attacks or strokes. A regular massage regimen can reduce the risks associated with stress.
