Yoga and Blood Pressure
B.K.S. Iyengar 2/22/2003

BKS Iyengar one of the most well known yoga teachersYoga asanas can be effective in different ways. In the
case of blood pressure they can combat the causes,
as well as the effects of high blood pressure and
stabilize blood pressure thus reducing high blood
pressure and regulating low pressure. Asanas calm
the mind and regularize and balance the autonomous nervous system, the center that controls stress. The
sympathetic and parasympathetic nervous system,
which are involved in stress reaction also get stabilized
in the practice of asanas resulting in regulation of
blood pressure.

The effects of hypertension on various systems such
as the cardiovascular, respiratory and nervous systems and on various organs especially the heart, lungs, liver and kidneys can be lessened and eventually
neutralized by the practice of certain asanas and pranayama.

The asanas, which regulate blood pressure, belong to the forward bends, supine, sitting, and inversions group. However forward bends are the fundamental asanas to be practiced by persons suffering from high blood pressure, whereas Viparita Dandasana is the most beneficial asana for low blood pressure.

Forward bends should be practiced with bolsters, blankets and an elasto-crepe bandage wrapped aroundthe forehead and eyes. In forward bends the frontal brain is pacified and blood flow to the brain is regularized. Stress gets released from the sense organs, eyes, nose, throat and tongue. Nervine stress, chronic headaches and eye pain is also reduced.

I was born in a village called Belur in the state of Karnataka, India on Sunday, December 14,1918 at 3 AM during the influenza epidemic of 1918. My mother was in the grip of influenza and there was little hope of my survival but God saved both of us. I looked sickly with thin arms and legs, a protruding stomach and a heavy head. My appearance was not prepossessing.The sympathetic nervous system gets rested and this
has a positive effect on the other systems. Blood
pressure becomes stable when the sense organs,
the brain and the sympathetic nervous system are relaxed. The horizontal position of the spine in these
asanas allows the heart to slow down, as there is no
stress to pump the blood against gravity to the brain.
The heart rate and the cardiac output simultaneously
slows down and blood pressure is controlled.

Although Uttanasana and Adhomukha Svanasana are
categorized as standing asanas, they are actually forward bending standing poses and as such have a similar effect on the nervous system. When these two poses are practiced with the head resting on props, the blood flows more freely into the aortic arch and the carotid sinuses. This extra perfusion into
these volume sensitive structures inhibits the vasomotor center and blood pressure becomes stabilized.

Supine poses such as Supta Baddhakonasana and Supta Padangusthasana 2 allow the abdominal region to spread and relax. This relaxation is not only beneficial to the entire organic body, but is also soothing on the nerves. Those suffering from high blood pressure practice sitting asanas such as Baddhakonasana, Virasana and Upavista Konasana. Often hypertensives have difficulty in their breathing and these poses owing to their erect position, soften the diaphragm and remove tension from the ribs and the intercostal muscles. This helps the person to breathe easily.

Inversions such as Halasana, Setubandha Sarvangasana and Viparita Karani rests and rejuvenates the nerves and reduce the sympathetic tone immediately. Regular practice of these asanas keeps the blood pressure under control. In Setubandha Sarvangasana the diaphragm and lungs are under control. The diaphragm and lungs are lifted and this helps to stabilize the blood pressure. Viparita Dandasana rests the Medulla oblongata, the center that control blood pressure. However this pose is for those suffering from low blood pressure and should not be practiced by hypertensives, as it will increase ocular pressure.

Svanasana and pranayama helps to control the automatic nervous system and the sympathetic tone gets reduced. As the mind and senses of perception are withdrawn, the blood pressure regularizes.

Shiatsu Massage and Its Benefits

Shiatsu is a Japanese word: "shi" meaning finger, and "atsu" meaning pressure. But shiatsu is more than acupressure. It is a combination of many different techniques, including pressing, hooking, sweeping, shaking, rotating, grasping, vibrating, patting, plucking, lifting, pinching, rolling, brushing, and, in one school developed by Suzuki Yamamoto, barefoot shiatsu, which includes walking on the person's back, legs, and feet.

In the practice of shiatsu, each person is primarily responsible for his or her own health and well-being. This contrasts with the Western belief that the medical practitioner is principally responsible for our health. In Western medicine an awareness of the unique significance of touch, the essential form of communication between two human beings in the fight to subdue pain, has all but disappeared; certainly it has become minimal. Ironically, in all times and all cultures, the importance of touch, just touch itself, has been acknowledged as a primary means to mitigate pain. In the hurried rounds of the Western clinical physician checking hospital charts at the end of the day, alas, it has nearly completely disappeared.

Shiatsu strengthens the immune system and, if practiced consistently, truly becomes preventive health care. Who can benefit from shiatsu? Early on, George Balanchine, Ivan Nagy, Martha Graham, and many other dancers took regular shiatsu sessions to relieve their pains and restore and maintain their vitality. It is well known that Liza Minnelli and Henry Kissinger have received shiatsu treatments to promote and maintain good health.

Massage and your Health & Well Being

The nervous system controls and coordinates all organs and structures of the human body. Irritation on any nerve will affect one or more of the body's functions. The most critical part of the nervous system is the spine. Any type of stress, mental or physical, caused by injury, strains, sprains, muscle spasms, or disease will affect one or more of the body's functions, whether voluntarily or involuntarily.

Once the nerves in our bodies leave the spinal column, they travel through canals in the tissue. If there is any pressure on these canals, whether created by inflammation, swelling or misalignment of vertebra, the nerves will send out a signal in the form of pain to alert the body of a malfunction. If you suffer from virtually any form of pain or stress, massage "may" be benefical to you
