In medical terms, massage is referred to as soft tissue mobilization method and its work is to break down the calcium deposits in the soft tissues by speeding up the blood flow and lymphatic drainage. It is a natural and easy way to manage high blood pressure and to ease the pains and aches of the body that are associated with high blood pressure. In addition to this, massage is also effective in lowering urinary and salivary cortisol stress hormones.

Massage also helps in soothing a person mentally

and is an effective way to fight unhealthy feelings like hostility, depression, anxiety and agitation.

For best results, it is advised to get a massage twice a week for half an hour at a time. A session should begin with deep breathing and stretching exercises to relax and calm you. This would increase the beneficial effect of the massage.

However, hypertension patients who are not currently taking any medications to lower their blood pressure need to consult a doctor before they start massage therapy. It is because massage works to raise the blood flow and this can result in health complications like distension of the blood vessels and severe bleeding in case of accidents.
