Hypertension, also known as high blood pressure and affects many people. It often goes unnoticed because it has no symptoms and is also known as the silent killer.

Hypertension is commonly diagnosed by a physician during a visit when blood pressure is checked. During cardio type exercise it is normal for blood pressure to increase but if it stays high consistently it's a sign for increased risk of stroke or heart disease.

Lifestyle that contribute to hypertension includes lack of exercise, unhealthy diet, obesity, cigarette smoking, and excessive alcohol consumption. Making healthy changes to lifestyle habits will improve hypertension. In addition, stress reduction habits such as massage, meditation, exercise, correct breathing will help with reducing hypertension.

Massage Therapy is proven to reduce diastolic and systolic blood pressure, relieve muscle tension, reduce feeling of depression, anxiety and hostility. Massage Therapy puts the mind and body in a state of rest and relaxation mentally and physically.
