squeezing a stress ball, might have a greater impact on reducing blood pressure than aerobic exercise or lifting weights
(PRWEB UK) 30 March 2013
Hypnotension, the programme which helps people to lower high blood pressure naturally have issued new advice which says that squeezing a stress ball may help lower blood pressure.
The advice is backed up by recent research from the American Heart Association which found that isometric exercise, such as squeezing a stress ball, might have a greater impact on reducing blood pressure than aerobic exercise or lifting weights.
Rob Woodgate, co-creator of the Hypnotension Programme says, “We’ve always maintained that exercise can make a significant difference when it comes to reducing high blood pressure naturally, and that any exercise is better than no exercise.”
“Our approach to exercise is to help clients do to more of it in ways which don’t seem like a chore. We are particularly excited by the finding that isometric exercise, such as squeezing a stress ball, might have the greatest impact on reducing blood pressure, as this fits well with our approach of building client activity levels slowly.”
The Hypnotension programme looks at a variety of lifestyle factors to establish which is likely to be causing or maintaining high blood pressure. These lifestyle factors are then targeted using specific cognitive and hypnotherapeutic techniques to help reduce the client’s blood pressure towards more normal levels.
There is a network of specially trained Hypnotension practitioners all over the country who can help people make the lifestyle changes which could help save their life.
