Corporate Chair Massage and High Blood Pressure

Many corporate wellness fairs offer onsite chair massage. In addition to relieving the musculoskeletal imbalances, Chair Massage and has proven to be beneficial in other common types of imbalances, three of which are hypertension (high blood pressure), and general tension, all problems that can affect effectiveness and productivity in a business environment.


Hypertension is often related to poor nutritional patterns, emotional stress, spiritual pain, or lack of exercise.  Overeating, too much refined sugar, too much salt in the diet, excessive smoking, excessive alcohol consumption, poor emotional disposition, and kidney dysfunction can all contribute to hypertension.  In addition to changing your eating patterns and developing a consistent exercise and movement program, visualization techniques can help balance your “chi” with a resulting reduction in blood pressure.   I use a gentle Gravity Rock on the stomach area to balance the kidneys. These will help soothe and relax the nervous system and revitalize the vital organs.

Much hypertension is a result of inter-office stress and emotional trauma

Indicators of Emotional Trauma:

  • Furrowed eye brows and/or lines on the forehead.
  • Backaches.
  • Headache.
  • Insomnia.
  • Grinding of teeth (bruxism).
  • Tight shoulders.
  • Squinting eyes.

Causes of stress tension:

  • Poor posture. Incorrect body alignment places undue stress on all parts of the body.
  • Stressful occupation. Tension at the work place can accumulate and lead to physical illness.
  • Nutritional deficiencies.
  • No outlet for emotional expression.
  • Poor movement and exercise patterns.
  • Poor sleeping habits. The cause can be too many pillows, an    improper mattress, street noises, ingestion of a heavy meal or             snacks at bedtime, and not enough fresh air.  Lack of certain    vitamins, especially B6, may prevent the achievement of            certain brain rhythms so that the deep sleep period is not            entered.


Techniques to Relieve Emotional Trauma:

  1. Apply Pressure Point Massage to the back of the head using the flat area of the thumbs. Begin at the back of the head where it meets the neck (occipital region). Gently press this area from left to right, then from right to left.  Apply pressure to the entire surface at least three times before moving to the next area.
  2. Knead the ears. Place the ear lobe between the thumb and the index finger and with a rubbing motion, softly squeeze. Repeat several times on each ear.
  3. Gravity Rock the stomach. Your partner should lie flat on his back. Place your right hand on the lower abdomen and your left hand gently on the abdomen.  Rock the stomach with a gentle back and forth motion.
  4. Apply Pressure Point Massage to the feet.
  5. Gravity Rock the back
  6. Complete the energy release by using any of the visualization technique described below. Ask your client to lay flat on their back have them close their eyes slowly take a deep, slow breath. Inhale, hold, and release, and repeat this three times.
