Massage Benefits-Cardiovascular benefits-The Alternative Nurse

Good morning!

On this 2nd day of June, 2020 there is a lot going on in the world. It is crazy to say the least. But what can you do to personally de-stress so to help eliminate anxiety?


Yes, massage therapy benefits the body on many ways and actually benefits all the systems that make up the body. When each system of the body is working to its fullest potential we are healthy. When we can give each of those systems a boost they will be able to work closer to how they were made to work.

Some of the benefits of massage to the human body include

Cardiovascular System:


  • Dilates Blood vessels for increased blood, oxygen, and nutrients to the bodies organs

  • Promotes Hyperemia

  • Improves blood circulation

  • Reduces Ischemia

  • Replenishes nutritive minerals

  • Lowers Pulse rate

  • Increases Stroke volume of the heart

  • Increases Red and White blood cells

  • Increases oxygen saturation of Red Blood cells

  • Increases Platelet Count

However, if you have a heart conditions it is important to know your body and be cleared by your physician before receiving a massage.

The picture above was striking to me. It shows the vasculature or vessel system of the heart. There are so many tiny vessels necessary for the heart and body to function properly. Keeping ourselves healthy is important. On way to stay healthy is to decreased stress and relieve stress in the body.
