Health Nut - Rubbing Your Blood Pressure Out

We can eat as much as we want but we cannot eat food that shouts bloody bad cholesterol, right? However, this is one indulgence we can bask ourselves in without having to feel guilt and that is having a long and deep massage.

According to RealAge.com, when people have deep massages, their systolic and diastolic pressure drops and that is a good sign. Study showed that there was a brief drop in the BP (blood pressure) of those who had their deep-tissue work from a licenced bodyworker for 45 to 60 minutes. It also induced a 10-point drop in heart rate. Oh, that is so relieving.....
