Las Vegas, NV, January 26, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Massage Envy Spas in Las Vegas and Henderson are celebrating American Heart Month and Valentine’s Day with a “Heart to Heart” special.
A number of long-term studies have shown that massage has many definite benefits in maintaining a healthy heart. Minimizing stress alone can lower blood pressure, reducing the risk of heart attack. Massage therapy improves circulation and pushes venous blood towards the heart, easing strain on that muscle. The positive effects of regular massage therapy are many in number, and contribute heartily to a program of whole-body wellness. (Source: National Institutes of Health- March, 2008 "The effect of deep-tissue massage therapy on blood pressure and heart rate". Materials and Methods: The study involved 263 volunteers (12% males and 88% females), with an average age of 48.5. Overall muscle spasm/muscle strain was described as either moderate or severe for each patient. Baseline blood pressure and heart rate were measured via an automatic blood pressure cuff. Twenty-one (21) different soothing CDs played in the background as the deep tissue massage was performed over the course of the study. The massages were between 45 and 60 minutes in duration. The data were analyzed using analysis of variance with post-hoc Scheffe's F-test. RESULTS: Results of the present study demonstrated an average systolic pressure reduction of 10.4 mm Hg (p<0.06), a diastolic pressure reduction of 5.3 mm Hg (p<0.04), a mean arterial pressure reduction of 7.0 mm Hg (p<0.47), and an average heart rate reduction of 10.8 beats per minute (p<0.0003), respectively.)
