Benefits of Massage for Cardiovascular Health
February is National Heart Month!
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the U.S. for both men and women, with risk factors including high blood pressure, obesity, diabetes, limited exercise, and even poor sleep quality.
There are many actions we can take to prevent heart disease – like eating healthy and moving more – but did you know that massage can also be beneficial?
Regular massage therapy can help mitigate some of the risk factors of heart disease as well as treat those who have undergone some cardiac procedures. Studies have shown that massage can help lower blood pressure for days after a session, reduce stress and inflammation, and improve immunity.
Perhaps most obviously (because who hasn’t fallen asleep on the table at least once!), massage can positively impact sleep and reduce the frequency of sleep disturbances.
At Heaven & Health, we see massage as both relaxation and healthcare – consider booking a session to experience the benefits of a holistic approach to your wellbeing!
